Razer shows its new Project Valerie at CES 2017

Razer has pulled a rabbit out of its crazy hat at CES 2017 and while we have seen plenty of such concepts from Razer before, the latest one, Project Valerie, is definitely an overkill. Based on Razer's Blade Pro notebook, the Project Valerie is the first gaming notebook with three displays.

To make things even more interesting, Razer has decided not to shrink the original Blade Pro but actually add two more 17.3-inch 4K/UHD IGZO-panel screens on both sides. When added up, this gives you a total resolution of 11,520x2160, which is definitely impressive.

Currently, the two additional screens are placed on a motorized hinge design, which slides them under the main screen, but it is still in its early stages.

Of course, driving three 4K/UHD screens on today hardware might be a struggle, despite the fact that the Blade Pro packs a quad-core Core i7 mobile CPU, Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 and plenty of RAM, the setup simply does not have enough raw power to decently run any game at that resolution, at least not unless you lower those settings significantly.

Of course, since this is just a concept, the Project Valerie notebook will probably be based on next-gen hardware when and if it ever comes to market.

The concept also used the same CNC machined chassis that is mere 1.5-inch thick as well as come with Razer's own ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard with RGB backlight and Chroma support.

Of course, there is no word on when or if we can expect the Razer Project Valerie to become a retail product but we certainly give credit to Razer for trying out something new.
