Razer is known throughout the world for it’s smart design and high performing products – particularly in the gaming end. The company was also looking to revolutionize the way gaming PCs are build. To do this, Razer introduced their Project Christine concept design this January, and boy did it look impressive. Project Christine was to be completely modular which meant that all of the components in it could be easily installed, moved and replaced. All the components in the Razer Christine were to be installed in a central rack, complete with the rig being covered with cooling tubes and green LEDs all over. This meant that all the components in the Razer Christine would be liquid cooled and the design was also to feature noise cancellation features to enable effortless overclocking. Sadly, the design was only a concept with further development expected to take place. And even more sadly, Razer seems to have run into some hurdles regarding Christine development.

Razer CEO Speaks About The Difficulty In Getting OEMs On Board For Development On Project Christine

When Christine was announced, it was expected to be a difficult slope to climb, with development challenges. This is because Razer has to get partner support in order to get work done on the Christine. Razer CEO Min Lian Tan has spoken about the Christine in an interview. According to what we were able to gather from Mr. Tan’s words, the Razer Christine should not be expected to hit the markets soon. Speaking on the OEM issue, Mr. Tan said: “The challenge is that it’s not something we’d like to undertake alone,” Tan said. “We’ve had conversationis with OEMs. It’s not entirely promising right now because OEMs are excited about pushing products and not really innovating on that front.” This sheds light on the fact that manufacturers are interested more towards earning revenue and clearing out their inventories rather than focusing towards changing consumer demands. Mr. Tan also highlighted the issue previously in March.

However, Christine should not be completely struck off the books. Mr. Tan also commented on talks and negotiations being underway with OEMs and said: “We’ve had good conversations,” he offered. “We’ll have announcements through the end of the year. We’re hoping to get two to three OEM partners on board.” To be fair, Project Christine in itself had ambitious aims, so its only natural that delays are taking place. All we can do now is hope that talks with OEMs are successful and that Razer has some good news for us by the end of the year. In addition, the longer it takes, the more better end product can be expected. Razer hasn’t disappointed with its products and lets hope that same will be the case with Christine.

Singaporean manufacturer Razer known throughout the world for its products catering to the specific needs of gamers has made some new announcements. The company is well known for its high quality products, and it looks like they’ve decided to try to make significant dents in the PC chassis market as well. This time, instead of directly manufacturing PC cases, Razer has decided to ‘outsource’ its designers to third party manufacturers. The ‘Designed by Razer’ program ”is open to selected case manufacturers, and it is subject to a rigorous vetting process by the award-winning Razer design and engineering team prior to approval. The new enterprise aims to take advantage of Razer’s design expertise and product engineering sensibilities.” according to the official press release.

NZXT To Launch The ‘H440′ Starting From
Next Month. The H440 To Be The First Case Designed and Manufactured Under The Licensing Program

Earlier this year, Razer showed off a new product in the works called ‘Christine’. The Christine featured an innovative design and allowed for active liquid cooling plus noise cancellation. It allowed factory overclocking of components without cancelling any warranties. However it seems to be highly unlikely that we will be seeing the Christine in the market anytime soon. But, under the Designed by Razer program, the company has entered into a partnership with case manufacturer NZXT. NZXT will now lanuch the H440, and the case is the end result of a collaboration between the two manufacturers.

The iPhone Gold 5S is now a confirmed color of choice that will be available to a prospective iPhone buyer. The iPhone Gold 5S will not be technically pure gold in color, reports indicate that when saying iPhone Gold 5S we should think champagne and not ingots. We think that the Golden iPhone will exceed sales predictions because of a number of reasons.

Top Reasons Why the iPhone Gold 5S will exceed sales expectation.

The iPhone Gold 5S is not Pure Gold in Color

Yes that’s right one of the major reasons in our arsenal is the fact that the iPhone Gold 5S is not pure gold. Why ? you ask, well its simple: The pure gold color has long since been associated with excessive bling and has begun to look highly unaesthetic since. The Pure Gold was bought by filthy rich people or the elite – a mark of status rather then beauty. The Gold iPhone will give you the best of both worlds: Beauty, Elegance and Status.
