If for some reason, you think that the visual and audio of a laptop has to conform to some sort of standard, then Razer has a piece of good news for you. The gaming gear specialist’s latest laptop, the new Razer Blade Pro is world’s first gaming laptop to be THX Certified. Don’t ask me if this has anything to do with Razer acquisition of THX, but anyways, there have it, a laptop to satisfy the cinephile in you, if that’s what you are after that.
In case you are wondering what the laptop has to go through in order for it to get the nod of approval from the name in hi-fi audio/visual reproduction, here’s how:
“Through the processes of THX, the Razer Blade Pro screen is calibrated and tested for resolution, color accuracy and video playback performance. The result of the exercise is an unrivaled viewing experience in any instance, whether a person is playing an FPS game or enjoying a special effects-packed movie… similarly, the audio jack on the new Razer Blade Pro met THX requirements for voltage output, frequency response, distortion, signal-to-noise ratio, and crosstalk that guarantees clear sound through headphones.”
As for the specs, the new Razer Blade Pro THX Certified Gaming Laptop gets an overclocked 7th-gen Intel Core i7 quadcore processor, supports Razer Synapse (goes without saying, really), “latest” NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, “faster” 32GB DDR4 system memory, up to 2 TB PCIe M.2 SSD in RAID 0 configuration, 17.3-inch 4K IGZO display with NVIDIA G-SYNC and 100 percent Adobe RGB color accuracy, built-in SD card reader, USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt 3 port, keyboard with Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switches, and Razer Chroma-enabled keyboard and trackpad – just to pick out a few – all packed inside a 0.88-inch (about 22 mm) thin CNC aluminum chassis that weighs a mere eight pounds. I must say 3.6 kg for a 17-incher is quite impressive.
The new Razer Blade Pro THX Certified Gaming Laptop is available now to the USA and EU markets on Razer web store, as well as select retailers. As for the sticker, expect nothing less than a bank balance-crunching $3,999.99. Ouch.
