The concept by Razer, known as Project Christine, promises to be the most modular gaming system ever.
Traditionally, only hard-core PC enthusiasts have been able to build, customize and continuously upgrade their desktop systems. The proimise of the PC has been underexploited for over 30 years, as general consumers must know what does what, what works with what and how to connect the pieces.
The revolutionary new modular concept design of Project Christine will permit users to build, customize and upgrade PCs without any technical knowledge. It will offer plug-and-play upgradability, eliminating the need to replace entire systems. It's also capable of running multiple operating systems.
Modules connected to the PCI-Express backbone can be added in any order or combination, featuring up to quad-SLI graphics, multiple SSD and RAID storage components, I/O and even power supplies, ensuring maximum flexibility.
Each seated module is self-contained and cable-less. Liquid cooling and noise cancellation allow Razer to factory overclock components without voiding warranties. The design also includes a touch-screen LED display that indicates control and maintenance information.
“Project Christine is a new concept design that will revolutionize the way users view the traditional PC. This is the first gaming system that is able to keep pace with technology and could allow consumers to never buy another PC, or gaming system, again,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “We have a history of bringing incredibly innovative concept systems to market and it’s fair to say that Project Christine is a very exciting new prospect for future development.”
