Project Valerie: The Three Screen Gaming Laptop
If there is one company that you can count on to showcase some truly cool gadgets at the CES each year, it is Razer.
The innovative tech company which was well known for its gaming accessories has gained prominence as the leading brand for gaming laptops.
The latest addition to the American technology company’s array of laptops, is unfortunately only a prototype so far. Dubbed as Project Valerie, the laptop is completely different from anything we have seen from Razer so far. The majority of Razer laptops so far have featured a sleek and slim body, like the portable Blade Stealth which is an alternative to the MacBook and the Blade Pro gaming laptop.
The Project Valerie prototype however, is a lot bigger and undoubtedly bolder. The device features a display of 17 inches that is fitted into a relatively thick frame. This added thickness is only due to the two extra displays of 17 inches each that are hidden inside the top lid.
According to Razer, this is “the world’s first portable laptop with three built-in monitors.” This certainly seems to be the undisputed truth, but only due to the fact that no one has attempted a revolutionary idea such as this in the past. The two additional displays open out on either side of the laptop’s central display. The tech company Razer has called this function “an automated deployment mechanism,” which snaps right into position without any need for a user to make any adjustments.
The Project Valerie laptop is fitted with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. This is currently the most advanced option that you can get on a laptop, which will make it perfect for gaming. Each of the screens makes use of Nvidia’s G-sync technology which has the ability to match the refresh rate of the display and the graphics hardware output.
The public is now used to utilizing laptops that are a lot thinner and lighter, with a majority of them weighing 3 pounds and less, and measuring a mere 10mm in some cases. However, Project Valerie has taken a step in the opposite direction with the entire device measuring approximately 1.5 inches in thickness and weighing in at around 5 kilograms.
Unfortunately, as this is still only a prototype, there is absolutely no information about what the possible projected price would be. For now, users can simply wait and watch with all eyes open to see if the laptop makes it to production sometime soon!
