Razer reinvents the desktop PC with a modular design concept.
Razer has presented at CES 2014 that is taking place in Las Vegas its Christine Project, which according to them promises to be the most famous modular system in Gaming. The Christine Project simplifies PC assembly, facilitates future expansions, and eliminates obsolescence.
The PC has traditionally been one of the most open platforms of technology. Either way, given the technical complexities of PC hardware, only the most enthusiastic have been able to enjoy this openness factor, where they can customize and enhance their desktop PCs. The great promise that the PC has been has gone untapped for the last 30 years, mostly because of the complexity of the hardware in the sense of figuring out what each part does, what it’s connected to, and how to do it.
Project Christine is a revolutionary new design concept that is going to change the way users view the PC. It will allow them to assemble and customize their PCs with any configuration and without the need for prior knowledge. Thus, as soon as new features are released on the market, this same PC can adapt and configure them quickly and easily, without the need for external technical assistance or the incompatibility of obsolescence.
The modular design within the Christine Project allows users to build their PCs by installing modules quickly and intuitively, be it a CPU, GPU, memory or storage system. The PCI-Express architecture of the Christine Project automatically synchronizes the components. Need more graphics power or storage capacity? Easy, because a user can add additional graphics modules or add more hard drives as needed. Likewise, The Christine Project is viable to work on multiple operating systems, as many as the user requires.
The modularity of the Christine Project makes it always customizable, being able to improve in a plug-and-play way according to market developments, and eliminating the need to buy an entire PC due to obsolescence. All modules connected to the PCI-Express skeleton can be added in any order or combination, be it graphics cards, multiple SSDs or RAID storage components, or even power supplies, giving maximum flexibility.
This wireless design of each sealed module is dedicated within its section and has a liquid cooling system, as well as sound cancellation, which allows overclocking components without touching their factory composition, allowing to keep guarantees and have security. The system also has an LED touch screen that indicates the situation status.
«The Christine Project is a new concept that will revolutionize the way in which users will see the traditional PC. This is going to be the first gaming system capable of keeping up with existing technology and allowing users to never have to buy a new PC or gaming system ever again,” says Min-Liang Tan, Co-Founder, CEO and Razer Creative Director. “We have prior experience of bringing innovative systems to market, and it is fair to say that Project Christine is a very promising and exciting future development.”
