CES 2017: Razer Debuts 'Project Valerie' Triple Display Laptop

by

Razer, known for its gaming laptops and accessories, today unveiled its latest product, the world's first triple display laptop. Project Valerie features a Razer laptop that's equipped with one main display and two fold out side displays, all of which are 4K.

Each display measures in at 17.3 inches, for what Razer says is the most expansive viewing experience in a notebook. Project Valerie is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce 1080 GPU and supports NVIDIA Surround View with a resolution of 11520 x 2160 for an immersive gaming experience.

While the three displays can be used as a single display, they can also be used individually to run multiple applications at the same time. An automated deployment system that uses durable aluminum hinges lets the laptop be set up in a matter of seconds, with perfect display alignment.


According to Razer, though its equipped with three displays, Project Valerie has a form factor that's comparable to other 17-inch gaming laptops on the market, fitting neatly into a laptop bag so it can be taken anywhere. It's about 1.5 inches thick and weighs approximately 12 pounds.

Project Valerie is still a prototype machine and it is not clear if it will eventually see a release. No launch date information or pricing details are available, but interested customers can sign up to learn more about it on Razer's website.

Dear Apple,

This is what courage looks like. Not just removing ports and audio jacks that millions use. Granted it's ugly as sin but at least they are trying.

It's 1.5 inches and 12 pounds. For goodness' sake, there's no justifying this. I'd take any Mac over this, any day of the week. An iMac would be more portable.

That laptop isn't meant for an on-the-go business person to go to starbucks. It's meant to sit on a desk most of the time, and be taken to LAN parties or whatever. Or maybe for someone to carry from hotel room to hotel room.

Then again, that's.. kinda what most laptops do anyway, sit on a desk plugged in all the time.

IMHO Razer is one of the few PC manufacturers that takes influence from Apple and still manages to really impress me. They have laptops that are similar in thickness and design to a MacBook Pro, yet those laptops pack GTX 1060s and 1080s. Not some warmed over last gen crappy Radeon GPU that overheats if you look at it funny.

Now that's what real innovation looks like.

How is it that everyone is at least 'trying' to be innovative... except Apple?! How did we get to this?

Lol.

1. This thing is massive and ridiculous. It's not meant for portability, and wouldn't even be able to game on all three screens.
2. This thing will never come out.
3. Is this really what you want from Apple? Giant, three-screened vaporware?

And if you know Apple, they don't care about GAMING. You can't compare the two machines as they have different purposes.

this gets old.

the 1060 or 1080 in the rig has Nvidia Cuda cores.

Install a CUDA aware application, have a blast. Most any pro/semi pro video or picture editing application they will see the cores and go alright, CPU is pegged at 100%, let me wake up these cores and they will do some work to help out.
Lots of others as well. I also do stuff in science realms. Code written to support CUDA, many have it.

Various gaming tech crosses over to non gaming. If a gaming card tries really hard to control Anti-aliasing for games guess what happens when not in a game. Thats's right....its does anti aliasing for work applications. The same tech that can help remove "jaggies" in a game helps a normal work application.


Razer also markets to crowds besides gaming. The current razor pro name has been dropped more than once since 2016 release. 1080 and 32 gb of ram....this directed dead center mass at a few targets. Creative content and video people among them. Yes...that argument. and yes....if you drop 28gb of video files straight into ram it will process much faster. I know.....I never use even 16gb argument. Some people do...and oddly enough its the "gaming" laptops that are saying pssst.....looky what I have here.


its just really friggin cool when done and you want to fire up a game after...you can. Won't lie about that.
