Razer Project Valerie And Project Ariana Stolen As CES 2017 Wraps Up
It is not easy stealing something from CES but it would not be the first time someone tried to steal a Razer prototype. Min-Liang Tan, Razer CEO reported that two Razer prototypes had been stolen at the CES 2017 event and that the company was working with law enforcement and event management to get them back. The prototypes in question are Razer Project Valerie and Project Ariana.

Razer Project Valerie might be the most ambitious feat of engineering that we have seen so far. I know that Razer makes some pretty cool products and we have been amazed by what the company can accomplish so far but this prototype takes things to the next level. What Razer has done with Razer Project Valerie is slap on two additional 4K screens to the Razer Blade Pro, making it a triple screen gaming rig for people that want that kind of setup on the go.
Razer Project Valerie is still in the prototype phase and it is possible that the tech to power this kind of a laptop is still a few years away from now. This is a Ludacris project to say the very least but we know that if someone can do it, that someone would be Razer. The Razer Blade Pro features a GTX 1080 but I doubt that will be enough to power three 4K displays.
Knowing that these are G-sync displays it is not possible that Razer Project Valerie will feature a Vega GPU and looking at Razer products of the past, I am sure that Razer will be sticking with Nvidia GPUs for Razer Project Valerie.
According to Razer CEOs Facebook post:
I’ve just been informed that two of our prototypes were stolen from our booth at CES today. We have filed the necessary reports and are currently working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue. At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. Our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest. We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously – it is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us. Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart. If you were at the show and/or if you can provide us any information, please do reach out to us at email@example.com – all information provided will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
