Razer's Project Christine makes PC modularity easy

Razer has piteched a hell of a gaming PC concept; a modular rig where even the most clueless of users can identify and swap in parts as hardware advances.

Project Christine is designed to allow anybody to build and customise their own PC, and upgrade it whenever new hardware comes out, without needing to know anything about how system are put together, or even opening a case. Razer's idea is that Christine's PCI-Express architecture would automatically sync components.

The base tower - or rack, perhaps - would allow for up to four GPUs with SLI, multiple SSD and RAID drives, and an input/output module, cooling unit, a control panel, and more.

You can get a feel for the concept in the video and images below, and check out Razer's website for more information. There's no guarantee such a thing would ever come to market, and even if it did it would mean sacrificing one of the PC's most lauded traits - its openness.

Razer is best known as a peripheral manufacturer but moved into gaming systems with the Razer Blade laptop. Last time we spoke with CEO Min-Liang Tan, he was quite coy about the possibility of desktop systems.

Thanks, Destructoid.
