[Razer] Concept Project Christine - Page 10

post #91 of 142
It would be long, heavy and awkward to move but would be easy to install and remove components with a table backing it up. It would be similar to putting a cartridge game in a sega mega drive.

I was hoping that they were designing something like pcparpicker but with a faster interface.

From a business perspective, this project is crap for all the reasons spelled out quite clearly already in this thread. Then again, both Apple and Alienware are both cRaZy concepts that are wildly successful, so go figure. lol

From a technical perspective, though, it's interesting. At least they're innovating -- we've never seen anything like this before. One can assume they patented this "modular" design/tech -- imagine if Intel or Nvidia decided they wanted to buy that patent in the future.......

I just hope they will put this out as a open standard so that other companies can be like "Oh let's make module X for this machine" it would be nice to see this come to life. I mean think of the possibilities of computing power that is really not limited to the motherboard. You could have your own dual "socket" machine with just by buying the extra CPU module.

I don't think it's THAT advanced. What you're talking about would require entirely new hardware from Intel, something the likes of which has never been seen before at all.

I assume the processor & motherboard are in the bottom compartment, socketed the same old way every processor and motherboard have been socketed since the dawn of time. I imagine the RAM is in there, too, connected just like any other ram module would be.

It's the OTHER components that are linked to that new pci-e design -- gpu's, soundcard, HDDs, SSDs, etc.

If Razer somehow got around Intel's socket design that would be MUCH bigger news than anything else coming out of CES.

I don't think it's that much of a stretch, actually. If you look at the pics, one of the upper modules is labeled "CPU / RAM," so it seems like what they envision is a small SBC-style motherboard in a single module that interfaces with a backplane that carries PCIe, USB, power, etc. It's not really that far removed from what you see in some industrial PC applications.

To be fair, the best way of bringing more people into the PC fold would be simplified information, and also that bigger stores streamlined their process of parts picking, with narrower but simplified and clearly ranked products.

Ie just RAM currently makes people's head explode. You have 3 common RAM speeds now, with 2-3 latencies being normal (but counterintuitive to tell most users) and with thumbnails/description having inconsistencies that further confuse users...

If Razer were to market this as the ultimate steam machine design -- maybe even license out whatever design patents they have on this to other manufacturers -- this could be a win.

I can't imagine this catching on in the desktop PC space, though. For desktop PCs, you're either an enthusiast who would see this as gimmicky, or you're a mainstream user who would rather just order a Dell or Apple. I don't think there's enough "in between" market to sustain this.

I'd rather save money and still have a better looking & space saving PC by doing something like Show4Pro's beautiful wall mount

They might not have the best design, but they are pretty good at advertising whatever they pull out of their behind.
