Razer brought back its Blade Pro notebook late last year with some fresh hardware. It was pretty well received and fans of the company’s gaming-oriented notebooks are going to like what it has to offer this time around.
Razer has again refreshed the Blade Pro lineup to the latest Kaby Lake processor from Intel. They say it is also the first ever THX-certified laptop.
The 17.3 inch laptop now comes with an overclockable 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7-7820HD processor and its 32GB RAM has also received a bump to 2,667MHz from 2,133MHz that the previous edition had. It keeps the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. As mentioned, this is the first notebook to get THX Mobile Certification which is an “accreditation reserved for high-performance mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.”
The Razer Blade Pro’s screen has been calibrated and tested for resolution, color accuracy, and video playback performance on THX processes and it passes with flying colors. The audio jack also meets THX requirements for voltage output, frequency response, distortion, signal-to-noise ratio, and crosstalk. Just to be clear, only the screen and headphone jack are THX certified, not the built-in speakers.
Naturally the price has gone up accordingly. Razer is selling the Blade Pro for $3,999. It will be available from Razer’s website starting next month.
