Razer Project Christine is not going to happen

Posted on Wednesday, March 26 2014 @ 13:00:41 CET by


A couple of months ago Razer demonstrated the highly modular Christine computer concept. While being quite promising, it was pretty clear that the project would be hard to bring to market so it doesn't really come as a surprise that Christine is unlikely to see the light of day.

In an interview with Polygon, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan revealed that his company is seeing lackluster response from OEMs. Tan believes Christine has gamer support but notes they need support from at least three to five OEMs to make this work.
For the project to come to fruition, Tan and Razer need two things: gamer support and PC manufacturer support. At a recent interview in New York, Tan told me they seem to have the first, but he's not convinced they'll ever get the second.

"We're trying to talk to some of the other PC manufacturers about it because I think the difference for us is that we are really focused on our user, right," Tan said. "We've been trying to speak to other OEMs and I think the response has been generally, 'OK, what's the forecast for this? How many units are you going to ship? What are the margins?' and stuff like that where we're being very open with them to say, 'Look, we don't know.'"
