Razer usually showcases a concept at CES – for instance, the Razer Switchblade in 2011, and Project Fiona (that became the Edge) in 2012. This year’s concept is Project Christine, and it aims to make building and upgrading a gaming PC as simple and painless as possible. How? By making everything ‘modular’.

Project Christine will let all users to configure their own PC – even if they don’t have any technical knowledge whatsoever. You simply plug modules – like a CPU, a GPU, and hard drive – into the central backbone. Once slotted in, Project Christine automatically syncs the modules thanks to PCI Express. And because of its modular-ness, if you simply want more graphics processing power or storage, you just add a new module or simply remove an existing one and replace it.

Each sealed module is entirely self-contained and includes an active liquid cooling system, which will keep it quiet and – according to Razer – mean that you don’t void warranties by overclocking said components. It also includes a LED touchscreen control display so you can keep an eye on the PC.

However, I should stress again that this is a concept, and Razer might decide not to make this available to the consumer. But you may never know. If gamers love the concept, they might decide to make it.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
