Razer has unveiled a number of impressive and highly innovative gaming laptops and other products in recent years. Today, it adds to its number of distinctions by having the first ever gaming laptop with THX certification. The Razer Blade Pro 2017 also received a number of impressive upgrades.
The 2017 Razer Blade Pro now comes with the latest Intel processor, the 7th-geneartion Core i7-7820HK Kaby Lake CPU which CNET noted as one of its most important upgrades. However, what got the gaming industry talking is the fact that the new Blade Pro is the first of its kind to be certified by the THX. This means the Razer flagship laptop has one of the best audio and video qualities around.
THX is an American company founded by George Lucas, the iconic filmmaker who created the unforgettable film franchises "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones". The company has been certifying video and audio equipment for as long as one can remember. Razer bought THX last year to further its efforts to immerse itself in other fields particularly in entertainment. The company starts off on a good note by combining its gaming expertise with the high standards of video and audio quality of the THX.
In particular, the Razer Blade Pro 2017 is equipped with an audio jack that meets the standards of THX for "voltage output, frequency response, distortion, signal-to- noise ratio, and crosstalk". Such qualities allow users to get the best quality sound possible via their headphones. The THX certification also means the new Blade Pro's screen provides quality resolution, color, and video playback capabilities.
AnandTech reported that the new Razer Blade Pro 2017 now has a better RAM frequency. From 2133 MHz, the upgraded Blade Pro now comes with the 2667 MHz DDR4. Most of the other features remained the same though they are still impressive.
At the last CES 2017 held earlier this year, the company even introduced two ground-breaking concepts in Project Valerie and Project Ariana, a three-screened gaming laptop and an in-room projector, respectively. Razer's entries to the popular tech show were so impressive that its Valerie laptop was stolen on the last day of the event and later surfaced on a Chinese auction site.
