Razer's Blade Pro gaming laptop gets Kaby Lake, THX certification


Razer is upgrading its 17-inch Blade Pro top-end gaming laptop with Kaby Lake processor, faster memory and a higher price tag.

The new Razer Blade Pro comes with an overclockable quad-core Kaby Lake Core i7-7820HQ (2.9GHz base / 3.9 GHz Turbo) and the 32GB RAM has received a bump to 2667MHz from the 2133MHz of the previous model. Razer says that you can overclock the CPU core to 4.3GHz by enabling "High Performance Mode".

It also gets THX certification for both screen and audio jack. Razer says that Blade Pro is the first laptop to be qualified for 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 via THX processes. Similarly the audio jack meets THX requirements for voltage output, frequency response, distortion, signal-to-noise ratio, and crosstalk that guarantees clear sound through headphones.

As for the rest of the specs, nothing has changed. The Razer Blade Pro comes with 17.3-inch IGZO 4K display with G-Sync support, multiple SSD options (512GB/1TB/2TB) and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics (8GB GDDR5X VRAM). It includes Killer wireless (802.11ac WiFi + Bluetooth 4.1), Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port, 3 x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, SDXC card rearder and 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo port.

The upgraded Razer Blade Pro will be available in April starting at $3,999. For comparison, the original model was priced $3,699.
