Razer's laptop with 3 monitors is no joke

Razer's laptop with 3 monitors is no joke

Yes, you read that correctly, Project Valerie has three monitors built in. Nor are these cheap little screens: They're 4K screens with NVIDIA monitor tech to ensure that they all work properly. The American electronics company has apparently outdone itself yet again with its new invention: the ground-breaking Project Valerie. Razer has opted for a butterfly design and the two displays have a motorized hinge that puts them in the edge positions whenever required and neatly slides them back under the main panel when closed.

According to Razer, Project Ariana "adapts the projection of in-game elements to the dimensions and features" of the environment in which it's being used.

While Razer hasn't given away details of CPU, GPU or memory, it has said Project Valerie is powerful enough to run HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR headsets, meaning you don't have to be shackled to a PC at home. Even the GTX 1080 will face crumbling frame rates when supporting Valerie's multi-monitor mode though: at native resolution, the three displays have a total of 11,520x2,160 pixels.

Nano Cells color LG's new Super UHD TVs
LG is keen this year, too, to bring attention to its HDR Effect feature, for "upconverting" standard dynamic range content to HDR. I'll bring you an update on how these TVs are shaping up as soon as I've had the chance to spend time with them at the CES.

Yes, Razer fitted Project Valerie with their slick ultra-low-profile switch mechanical keyboard. Well Razer wants to extend Chroma from multi-colour lighting to full blown video projection and this seems to be the first step. The chassis is made of CNC aluminum and measures 1.5 inches thick and weighs in at under 12 lbs.

Since this is just a concept, Razer hasn't attached a price tag onto it, but if the company does, what do you think the MSRP is going to be?

While Razer aims most of its products primarily at gamers, it says that Valerie is the ideal choice for mobile productivity too, offering you "the expansive workspace and flexibility to tackle any task". From a purely technical level though it sure looks impressive to us here at T3 Towers - that ability top have 12K worth of screen real estate for working and gaming is incredibly desirable.
