Razer re-invents gaming desktops with the first modular pc. The PC has traditionally been a modular platform. However, given the complexities of hardware, only the most enthusiasts have been able to customize and upgrade their PC.
Project Christine, presented at last CES, allows users to easily build their PCs by allowing them to select and install modules on-the-fly.
All components of the traditional desktop PC (cpu, ram, gpu, hard drive) are enclosed in individual modules. It is no longer necessary to disassemble the PC, just pull out a module and insert another one.
With an innovative design, the Project Christine uses the PCI Express for data communication between the various modules and a new liquid cooling system, reducing the noise produced.
The project Christine is now a prototype under development, will have to wait perhaps 2015 for its arrival on the market. The project is very ambitious and innovative, Razer will have to convince hardware manufacturers to include the various components in the modules of the Project Christine. It will not be easy given the large number of components in desktop computers.
