    What do you guys think Razer will showcase in CES 2019?

    CES 2017 featured Project Valerie and Project Ariana.
    CES 2018 featured Project Linda and other products.

    While the above featured concept products, Razer also unveils some of the products they're planning to release for the year. Last year at CES 2018, Razer revealed the Razer Nommo, the Razer Mamba Hyperflux + Firefly Hyperflux, and a collaboration with Netflix and Philips Hue.

    For CES 2019, we know that Razer will be collaborating with Microsoft for a new product for Xbox One. We should be expecting more to come aside from this, especially if Razer wants to win the Best of CES award again after failing to do so for 2018.

    My guess for their big reveal is the shortly leaked "Razer Opus" which is likely to be an audio related device. I'm also guessing and hoping that the next would be Synapse 3 supporting more legacy devices such as the Naga Epic, Orbweaver Chroma, Kraken 7.1 V2, Tiamat 7.1 V2, and others. Another could be a Razer branded Desktop since there is a product page for it. There's a possibility that they also unveil a Chroma powered monitor.

    It's also quite possible for Razer to unveil the GeForce 20 powered Blade 15 there but it's a bit unlikely since that is when Nvidia will be unveiling the GeForce mobility lineup and I doubt they will feature the new Blade 15 immediately after Nvidia reveals the new mobile GPU lineup.

    What do you guys think will show up?

    Why not a gaming console from Razer ?

    I think there will be a big focus on the whole microsoft / xbox partnership, since that will likely open a lot of new console gamers to Razer if it is advertised all over. I also expect a couple things like in the past years, where it is a very cool concept but not really near being a real thing yet for a good price, such as Project Valerie.

    Last year they also had some new products like the Huntsman Elite that got leaked ahead of time since a few press people posted videos / photos of it when it was in Razer's hotel room type press room, I guess they were getting feedback for the new purple switches. I feel like there may be something like that again where some new products not really shown fully at CES will get leaked again.

    Probably cool Project with ladies naming like Wanda, Cathy, Julia etc, and definitely not project Bob or MichaelxD

    Aren't they named after the ex of the person that came up with the idea of the project?

    That would be really nice. I've been waiting for the GeForce 20 laptops to come out since I'm due for an upgrade. Hoping to get a slim and light gaming laptop to develop games in college.

    Although I don't expect it, it would be really great if Razer updates the Razer Naga Epic into a Naga Trinity Epic. I would also really love to pair that up with a new Razer Orbweaver or a new Razer Keypad with Razer Opto-Mechanical Switches like the Huntsman.

    Whatever they do, I just hope that the prototypes aren't stolen again. That was the SADDEST thing ever.

    My prediction is another case, perhaps the Lian Li partnership they showed off last year. And possibly a monitor.
    Honestly a case and monitor is all that razer is missing. Other than that we may see another wild concept product that'll never be released.

    It would be cool to see them get into the prebuilt business with a slim form factor case built in house.

    Yeah, a partnership with other companies to create Desktops and Monitors isn't anything new but it would be interesting to see a completely in-house made monitor and system. I don't think Razer has ever entered the Desktop market without any partnerships with other companies so it would be interesting to see what they could do in this department.

    With all this recent talks of monitors, I wouldn't be surprised if Razer actually presents a 3-in-1 Monitor similar to Project Valerie except that it is in the form of a Monitor instead of a Laptop. I don't think this is something that has been done before and I believe that Razer has the technology to pull this off if they were able to put this into a Laptop. It would be unpacked as a thick looking display but can deploy two screens on it's sides so the user has a choice of playing with 1, 2, or 3 screens. It would, of course, feature Chroma lighting and be THX Certified. This would be amazing not just for playing games but also for workstations. As an aspiring video game developer, this would be an amazing product to showcase.

    Did I get it right @mltan ?

    Project Linda looks awesome, but can you actually plug a Razer Core to Linda (wait ... that came out in a weird way) to be able to play modern games at 60fps on a 27" 120hrz Display?

    if yes, then you have a customer right here! :wink_:
