Razer debuts new triple-screened laptop as its latest CES innovation


NewsHubRazer has established a reputation for building crazy, out-there CES inventions that sometimes ship (but mostly don’t).

Now the company is demonstrating Project Valkyrie — a three-screened laptop with 17-inch displays and 4K panels.
Multi-screen laptops are nothing new — Lenovo had a W700ds with dual screens back in 2008 and I’m certain it wasn’t the first company to take a shot at the idea. But Razer has gone all-out on this one, with 4K displays, multiple 17-inch panels, and a GTX 1080 packed in to power the entire system. You won’t be playing any surround games in 4K that way, at least not any graphically intense titles; as powerful as the GTX 1080 is, it’s nowhere near enough to drive 24.9 megapixels of screen at once. Still, 5760×1080 would be no problem, and Razer says the entire system is compatible with Nvidia’s G-Sync technology, despite the unusual monitor configuration.
All three displays use Sharp’s IGZO technology to cut power consumption, and the system tips the scales at 12 pounds.
