Multi-screen laptop aren’t exactly anything new — Lenovo had it’s own W700ds with dual screens all the way back in 2008 and I’m fairly sure that it wasn’t the first company to attempt the idea. But Razer has genuinely gone all out on Project Valerie, with triple 4K displays, 17-inch panels, and a beastly GTX 1080 pumping power to the entire system. You won’t exactly be playing any of the latest games in 4K that way, at least not any of the graphically intense titles; as powerful as the GTX 1080 is, it’s not even remotely powerful enough to drive 24.9 megapixels of screen at once.
All three of the 4K displays utilise Sharp’s IGZO technology to reduce power consumption, and the entire system tips the scales at around 12 pounds. On one hand, that’s really more “transportable” than being portable. And on the other, you are never going to be able to build a desktop that can deliver this kind of powerful configuration even remotely close to the same weight class.
Other features of the majestic Valerie include the Intel Core i7-6700 quad-core CPU along with 32GB of DDR4 RAM, a low-profile mechanical keyboard, Razer’s signature Chroma lighting system, and a trackpad which sits alongside the keyboard. So far, there’s been no word on the monster’s battery life; considering the fact that it has three 4K displays to power, I personally think that putting a battery in this rig makes any kind of sense, beyond giving it a few minutes of hibernation time while you run across power outlets.
Everything aside, it seems as though Razer is only targeting a very small and specific consumer group with this product like they’ve been known to do before as one of the biggest customer centric gaming organisations.
