High-end Razer prototypes stolen from CES 2017

Project Valerie

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan has said that two of their gaming prototypes were stolen from their booth at CES.

“We are currently working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue,” said Tan.

“At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. Our teams worked months on end to conceptualise and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest.

He said Razer treats theft and, if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, 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.”

    Well how many of these razor prototypes ever see fruition ? I have seen an endless stream of these prototypes from razor every year and never seen them become commercially available.

    I think you making a big huff over something that is not viable for at least the next 5 years.

    1) a gtx 1080 cant run more than one 4k screen in gaming anyway, so 2 extra 4k screens is pointless for gaming,
    2)4k 17 inch screens you can’t even read text so it’s pointless for work too.
    3) the battery could never sustain 3 screens for much time anyway.

    All in all its another razor fluff prototype like the many we have seen and its honestly not such a huge loss the way they making it out to be.
