The CES 2017 is the biggest tech event of the year. It showcases a number of tech firms from across the world. One of the most popular names that many people look out for every year is that of Razer. The company is known for their devices that redefine the way we know gaming computers to be. This year, something rather shocking happened at the event, as Project Valarie, the 3 Screen Razer laptop prototype has been stolen from the event.
The CES is usually not known for any such controversies. However, this year, Project Valarie is in news for all the wrong reasons. While it was one of the coolest things in display at the event, it has suddenly come to light that Project Valarie has been stolen. The announcement came via Razer chief Min-Liang Tan himself.
He posted on Facebook stating that: “just been informed that two of our prototypes were stolen from our booth at CES today. 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.” Razer CEO Tan suggests that there might be the hand of a competitor in this theft. “Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart.”, he stated further. The company is indeed treating this theft of Project Valarie rather seriously.
Project Valarie is basically a laptop that opens up into three folds, opening a new, large display for the users. For gamers, this is quite a delight. Together with the three screens, this Project Valarie laptop provides the users with a 12K experience.
As of now the device is still in a development stage, and tends to get very hot while using it. Razer has been keeping specs rather secretive for now but rumor has it that they’re using Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 card for the same. This theft however, is quite shocking, and thanks to the security measures at the event, it is likely that the thief will soon be identified and caught.
