During CES 2022, Razer has debuted an ambitious gaming desk called ‘Project Sofia’. In fact, Razer is claiming that this is the ‘world’s first modular gaming desk concept’.

The gaming desk will be fitted with 13 different modules such as THX spatial surround sound control, system monitoring, programmable hotkeys, a 15W wireless charger, media controls, and more. The desk can be customized, whether you use it for gaming or content creation.

There’s also a built-in PC with a customized PCB that’s outfitted with an Intel processor and Nvidia GPU. Apparently, the parts are housed in a chassis under a glass tabletop and parts can be removed to upgrade. It seems like a handy feature, although the site only mentions Intel and Nvidia. Hopefully, the gaming desk can be upgraded with AMD GPUs/CPUs as well, but we’ll have to wait until more information comes out – if we ever get more information. After all, we’re still waiting for the Razer Toaster.

Something else to keep in mind is that it is a “concept”, meaning it may never see the light of day.

Analysis: What will this concept mean for gaming desks?

Having a fully customizable gaming desk would be incredible for both gamers and professionals. As stated earlier, each module can be outfitted with a related task

For example, an office worker working remotely might have a desk fitted with a module for digital planning, a group chat module, privacy controls, and a productivity launcher. Until the monitor displays the Zoom meeting call.

In the meantime, a content creator could design modules for touchscreen controls paired with a stylus and control wheel. Media controls and custom creative input tools can be displayed in the desk to aid in the editing and creation process. You can also attach an eGPU to the desk, which will boost the built-in PC’s processing power for more intensive business work.

There’s also a module shown in the concept video, which displays the current clock speed and temperature of both the CPU and GPU installed in the desk.

Though ‘Project Sofia’ is still a pipe dream, the makers should seriously consider making this concept a reality. While the price tag is likely to be hefty, it will turn out to be a great tool for those looking for a luxury gaming desk that will span a wide variety of uses.
