Gaming hardware company Razor is revealing the new 17-inch Razer Blade Pro portable gaming system at CES 2017. It is essentially “the world’s first portable laptop with three built-in monitors”. A proprietary “deployment mechanism” designed in-house allows the two additional side screens to slide out from the main display. The three 17.3-inch 4K IGZO displays are housed in a unibody CNC aluminum chassis that weighs in at about 12 pounds and is just 1.5-inches thick.
All of those customized and even synced to game-events color effects you see in the images are powered by Razer Chroma. The keyboard, monitors and trackpad can be lit up with a dazzling array of lighting effects as per the user’s settings. The system is powered by a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 which is more than enough power for VR applications like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, according to Razor.
Here are some more features and head below to see it in action:
Project Valerie retains the remarkable thermal management system for which Razer’s line of laptops is known. A custom-designed fan and dynamic heat exchangers pair with a vapor chamber to maximize heat dissipation.
Project Valerie is the second Razer notebook to utilize Razer’s Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switches. Each switch features a true actuation and reset point. Key presses are registered with 65 grams of force, mimicking the feel of full-size mechanical keyboards. The keyboard, trackpad, extended monitors are also Powered by Razer Chroma
, which unlocks a virtually endless array of dazzling lighting effects that can be customized by the user or synced to in-game events.
The Razer Blade Pro follows releases from last year like the 14-inch Razer Blade and 12.5-inch Razer Blade Stealth, which start at around $899. However, we are yet to receive pricing and availability details on the new Blade Pro.
The 12K multi-display gives you the expansive workspace and flexibility to tackle any task. Utilize the three displays as one to span your creative projects across the large screen real estate. Alternatively, take advantage of each display independently, running multiple applications simultaneously allowing for multi-tasking like never before.
