During CES 2014, Razer unveiled a new modular desktop gaming PC unlike anything you’ve seen before. Dubbed Project Christine, the concept design takes every component of a PC and integrates it into a small, metal-encased pod that can be snapped in and out of the tower on the fly.
Project Christine makes the process of swapping, adding, or upgrading components effortless and wire-free. The system uses PCI-Express architecture to connect and sync each component for what Razer calls “plug-and-play” upgradability.
The modules will house everything from GPUs, SSDs, RAM, power supplies, and the CPU, which can be organized in any configuration the user sees fit. Each will feature active liquid cooling and noise cancellation, which Razer says will allow them to factory overclock components for higher performance. The tower will also come equipped with a built-in LCD touch screen, which offers controls and maintenance information for each module.
Although Project Christine is just a mere prototype right now, Razer hopes to have a market-ready version by CES 2015.
