CES 2017 | Razer shows off concept notebook with three 4K displays
Razer is never one to shy away from the spotlight. Perhaps best known for its gaming peripherals and masterfully engineered Blade line of gaming notebooks, Razer has been pushing the limits of what a gaming laptop can be. Today at CES, they showed they are still at the forefront with Project Valerie, a (somewhat) portable notebook equipped with three 4K displays.
At first glance, the device looks like a much thicker version of the recent Blade Pro. This heft is hiding quite the secret, though; behind the main display are two additional panels that can be slid out on either side to create an incredible (and mobile) multi-monitor setup. The additional monitors extend via “an automated deployment system utilizing highly durable aluminum hinges.” The system “allows the two side displays to quickly deploy and lock into place ensuring the perfect alignment in a matter of seconds.” And perhaps the best part - each of the three monitors feature a 4K panel (for a total resolution of 11520 x 2160) and Nvidia G-sync. Powering these displays is a top-of-the-line Nvidia GTX 1080.
The laptop is quite hefty, measuring in at 1.5 inches (38.1 mm) thick and weighing about 12 lbs (5.4 kg). It certainly harkens back to the monstrous gaming laptops of old, only with some seriously forward-thinking tech. Razer says that in addition to immersive gaming, the device could provide an amazingly powerful mobile workstation.
It should be noted that this device is still in concept, so Razer hasn’t provided any information on pricing or availability.
