ThundeRobot ST-Pro is a laptop that is VR ready! I bought my ASUS Predator 17x VR ready for around 3500 euro. Super pricy! But super worth it. But now a year later you can get amazing deals for way cheaper. This is both a good looking laptop and powerful. Let’s see what it packs inside.
Some main specs: Gaming Laptop, 15.6” IPS FHD 1920×1080 resolution display, GTX1060, Intel Core i7 7700HQ CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD disk, VR ready, 2.5cm thickness, 6GB of GDDR5 memory and 1280 CUDA cores!
The first good thing to know with ThundeRobot ST-Pro is that the GPU GTX 1060 inside this machine performs better than both GTX 970M and GTX 980M mobile GPUs! 50% boost over GTX 970M and 10% over GTX 980M!
This computer will be great machine for these VR headsets: ThundeRobot VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other high-end headsets. The processor is running on 7th gen kabylack platform with 4 cores, 14nm manufacturing process, 2.8GHz and can be boosted to 3.8GHz.
With a computer like this it’s important to have great power dissipation and this one comes with that for optimal gaming experience. The keyboard is full colour RGB backlight. You can tweak the colours!
The laptop is made in aluminium alloy material with a reinforced metal surface. It also has gone through various things like stringent stamping, anodizing and sand blasting to make it perform better and be durable!
The display has 160 degrees angle of view, 250 nits brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio and 25mm frequency response. Probably won’t be as vibrant as Galaxy S8 or iPhone X display but it’s probably decent for gaming!
The audio experience comes with Sound Blaster X-FI MB5 which has 5.1 stereo sound technology. Called the onkyo speakers. They are available on both left and right side of the laptop.
The I/O interface on ST-Pro can be good to know: three USB 3.1 ports (which is way faster than 3.0!), two Type-C ports, one HDMI port two Mini DisplayPorts, Audio Jack, RJ45, DC and Card reader 6-in-1 for standard cards.
I like how this laptop is slimmer than my fat ASUS Predator laptop. On the other hand my predator is 17 inch. 15 inch that this one has might be a little too small for many people.
