Razer updates the Blade Pro, gets THX certification

Razer is refreshing its Blade Pro Gaming notebook, the “gaming desktop in a laptop” it launched a couple of months ago (via Engadget). The new models will feature 7th gen Intel quad-core i7 processors and faster RAM, but the real killer feature may well be the THX certification for both audio and video.

According to the company, the new Blade Pro is “the world’s first laptop to be a THX Certified Mobile Device by the legendary audio/visual brand.” For those unfamiliar, THX was created by Star Wars creator George Lucas back in 1983, and the company was acquired by Razer in October. With this new technology, gamers can expect “top-notch audio quality” as well as a great viewing experience. “Display colors are pre-calibrated for accuracy, producing the best visuals for gaming, videos, and content creation,” explains Razer.

Moreover, the refreshed Blade Pro laptop still comes with the following features:

  • 17.3-inch 4K UHD G-SYNC touch display
  • GeForce® GTX 1080 VR ready graphics
  • up to 2TB of external RAID 0 storage
  • An ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard
  • 3 USB 3.0 ports and one Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port

The new laptop will be available in the US and Europe in April and it won’t be cheap, with prices starting at $4,000. You can sign up via the store listing to get notified about its availability in your country. Let us know in the comments if you’re interested in Razer’s top-of-the-line gaming laptop.
