Best Gaming PCs of CES 2017

Razer Project Valerie Laptop
Razer has always shown crazy concepts at CES, and the company’s Project Valerie exemplifies that this year. It’s a prototype gaming laptop that’s outfitted with three 17-inch 4K panels that automatically extend with the press of a button. It’s designed for those who want to game on the go with an ultra-wide monitor setup, but the company asserts that it was also built for multi-screen productivity.
Project Valerie is currently outfitted with a Kaby Lake i7 processor and a GTX 1080 GPU, but Razer says that if it ever releases the laptop, it won’t come out this year and will be outfitted with more power-efficient components. This is appreciated because the prototype that we used got hot. Really hot. As a matter of fact, it was scalding just to touch.
Performance was surprisingly good, however. We got to play Battlefield 1 at 11520x2160 resolution with most of the settings maxed out.
We couldn’t use a frame rate measuring program, but we estimated it to perform at around 30-40 average FPS, which is impressive given the resolution.
