The device it replaces is not at all old, in fact was introduced last October, but it seems that in Razer intend to keep updating the most important teams. We're going to show you the new 17-inch Razer Blade Pro and what's new under your arm.
Before going into detail I put a little in position, this equipment is for those players looking for a laptop and have no problem with the budget, as is usual in the Razer offer. They try to mount an experience almost identical to that of a powerful desktop, in a relatively portable device.
Okay, there are brutal equipment, but they do not reach the balance between power and dimensions of Razer, nor to their level of design, which could say that it saves the user 's discretion, are not especially striking for what is styled.
THX Mobile Certification
What's new with this Blade Pro? Well, mainly two things: upgrading to Intel's Kaby Lake processors and complying with a THX Mobile certification, which they say is the first to deal with it ( Razer bought THX last year).
What THX does to award the "sticker" is that the Blade Pro has a screen calibrated to the taste of the company specialized in Hi-Fi, and meets the necessary color and definition levels. It is a certification that also touches the sound, both the output jack and the two speakers are configured by them.
One of the important things to note, and that is maintained, is the mechanical keyboard specially designed for the laptop. The complete dimensions of the equipment are 22.5x424x281 millimeters and weighs 3.54 kilos.
Renewing the Intel Processor
The new quad-core Kaby Lake processor is accompanied by faster RAM (2667MHz), and can accommodate up to 32GB. The graphics is still an NVidia GeForce GTX 1080 - 8GB -, which will have to do with a screen of 17.3 inches (4K resolution, touch).
There are three storage options: 512GB (2 x 256GB) M.2 PCIe SSD, 1TB (2 x 512GB), 2TB (2 x 1TB). If you are curious about the autonomy that can have the new configuration, say that it goes at 4 hours with moderate use.
All this has a price, prohibitive for some, since the basic configuration of this monster starts at $ 4,000 . We remind you that last year's model was $ 3,700. It appears in the North American market in April.
