At CES this week Razer have made a rather interesting and impressive announcement by the name of Project Valerie – a three-screen laptop optimized for immersive gaming.
Razer’s Project Valerie aims to be the first system in the world to have three built-in screens; two of which are housed behind the main, to unfold with the press of a button. The two additional displays are fully motorised and are mounted on aluminium hinges, and of course are in turn backlit with their Chroma lighting, because why not? Each of the 17.3-inch displays is a 4K IGZO screen with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology working in there as well. This means that each display is capable of producing the smoothest possible frame rate in an expansive 180 degree surround view gaming experience. The total resolution of the three displays is a stunning 11,520 x 2160 pixels. Additionally the screens will feature 100 percent Adobe RGB colour accuracy meaning the creative types will not lose out.
“The complexities of a traditional multi-monitor setup are a thing of the past with Project Valerie. Equally important, the power of a desktop computer and graphics capabilities of three top-end monitors are included in the system. There is no shortcoming in the way of performance in the face of its amazing portability and features.” says Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan.
Project Valerie is an impressive piece of hardware, as it is also the second notebook to utilize Razer’s ultra-low-profile mechanical switches. This means each switch features a true actuation and reset point and register with 65 grams of force. This means that Project Valerie’s keyboard mimics the feel of a full-size mechanical keyboard all in a unibody aluminum chassis measuring just 1.5-inches think. The main body of the device is very similar to their Razer Blade Pro, with the touchpad positioned to the right of the Chroma backlit keyboard.
All of this is made possible thanks to the impressive engineering team of Razer and the power of a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 which drives Project Valerie. This means that Project Valerie exceeds the minimum hardware requirements of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Making Project Valerie a complete package with stunning displays, power and being completely VR ready.
