Gaming peripheral and hardware manufacturer Razer unveiled Project Valerie during CES 2017 over the weekend. The “world’s first triple display laptop” certainly took everyone by surprise. In fact, the appeal for the prototype was so great that two units of Project Valerie were stolen from the company’s booth.
Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan has now announced a $25,000 reward to any individual who can come forward with valuable information to help track down those responsible for the theft. As clarification, that’s the maximum reward on the table. It could be lowered depending on the value of the information.
Following the crime, Tan stated that Razer takes theft “very seriously”. He even went as far as to say that the theft could be related to “industrial espionage”.
Razer is currently working with both the CES management and police officials to track down the culprit(s). If you have information on the theft, you can submit it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project Valerie looks like an average laptop at first but is able to deploy dual screens from the sides. That’s triple 17.3-inch screens running at glorious 4K resolution. The laptop itself is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU and natively supports NVIDIA Surround View with a whopping resolution of 11520 x 2160.
The deployment is automatic and quick to ensure that users are wired in as soon as possible. In total, Project Valerie readies you for a unique experience in “a matter of seconds”. The units displayed on CES were only prototypes and so we can expect further changes and improvements in the future.
There is currently no information on a price point or release date for the product. It goes without saying that it will carry a hefty premium upon launch.
