Razer’s new Project Valerie is a gaming laptop that expands from one to three displays with the press of a button. Multi-monitor desktop gaming is easy, but setting up a pair of additional screens to complement a laptop display is not. Razer’s Project Valerie concept, being shown today at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
Project Valerie is a thicker version of the 2016 Razer Blade Pro, the best machine Razer’s brought to market so far. The extra depth is caused by a pair of additional 17.3-inch 4K IGZO displays layered behind the main one. When the user decides to go from one to three screens, the additional displays automatically deploy, aligning themselves with the primary.
“Multi-monitor desktop set-ups are becoming more necessary for professionals, creators, and gamers,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO via official announcement. “For the first time, we’ve engineered a solution that users can take with them. Project Valerie promises all of the functionality of three screens and none of the hassle.”
Considering the single-screened 2016 Razer Blade Pro that serves as its base starts at $3,700, I’d expect a consumer version of Project Valerie to fall somewhere in the $5,000 range.
2016 Razer Blade Pro, with its GTX Geforce 1080, runs most games passably at 4K on a single display, it’s not ready for 12K gaming. Check out the video below.
