At Venom, we believe there is always room for improvement. Which is why our production motto is: “…To be the best to market and not the first to market; to consciously design a computer which achieves purposeful outcomes.”
And that is why we are now introducing the 7th generation Venom BlackBook. A Pro, dedicated to people who continuously push boundaries, and who are masters of their craft. Intelligently designed, and masterfully constructed, for dependable, calibrated, mobile performance, in a 16" chassis.
Tuned high performance
Once you are exposed to something that is undeniably better, it becomes apparent that anything less is unquestionably unacceptable. When it’s serious, details matter. The BlackBook Pro 16 was created for people who push boundaries just a little more each time, and require high performance, on demand. Every. Single. Time.
Designed for translating speed into success, in the most intelligent way possible, within a 16" chassis.
The BlackBook Pro 16 is Venom's 7th Generation, award-winning, BlackBook
“A finely calibrated balance between portability and maximum power”
We were the first to coin the concept of a MuscleBook, back in 2015, with our 3rd generation award-winning Venom BlackBook 15 and 17. The Venom BlackBook Pro 16 (Gen 7) has again evolved. A highly calibrated balance between ultra-high end performance, typically reserved for desktop computers, and an ultra-thin, light, notebook computer, called the UltraBook. This new class of notebook embodies the vision of what we at Venom refer to as a MuscleBook. Now available in 15", 16", and 17" – we introduce you to the BlackBook Pro 16.
15.6" OLED 4K Venom Vision Display
The Venom Vision 15.6" OLED UHD display offers 4x higher resolution than FHD, with 3840 x 2160 pixels (8,294,400 pixels) and superior rapid responsiveness, coupled with Next Generation Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics.
Edge to edge bezels, with 100% Colour Gamut
120,000 to 1 contrast ratio. True black exposure ensuring backgrounds, text and colour, stand out, without being washed away.
Constructed for Reliable 16" Mobile Performance
The BlackBook Pro 16 is the next step up in performance, from the BlackBook Pro 15. While still requiring high mobility, it’s ideal for high-skill orientated creators, as well as for gaming. People who need that extra edge and desktop power, on the go. Achieve what others label as ‘undoable.’ Magnificent high performance which has been refined; dedicated to skill and mobility.
Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Ready
The BlackBook Pro 16 is Virtual (VR), Augmented (AR) and Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) Ready, meaning it is capable of immersive gaming with richly detailed, three-dimensional graphics, comfortable gear, and natural movements, as well as being Windows Mixed Reality ready, providing holographic and mixed reality experiences, with a compatible head-mounted display. As a comparison to the previous generation Venom BlackBook Pro 15, it has 40% better EFps (effective frames per second) performance with GTA V, Overwatch, PUBG and Fortnite.
Aerospace Inspired Graphics
The max q condition is the point when an aerospace vehicle’s atmospheric flight reaches maximum dynamic pressure. The perfect trifecta: lean, high performing, and cooling, with optimal thermal and electrical design. The BlackBook Pro has been built around this graphics card and infused in an aluminium composite metal chassis, and outer casing, finished in aerospace carbon black.

Stealth Active Cooling – They Will Never Hear You Coming
Venom's Dual Fan Stealth Active cooling ensures all that high performance doesn't come with a tax. Translating speed into success is done intelligently with vapour chamber cooling modules that are both space-saving and thermally efficient. The vapour chambers are built with a series of small posts which keep the structure from collapsing under external atmospheric pressure. The module is in a hermetically sealed vacuum, attached to the heat pipes, to dissipate heat. Aerodynamically engineered Liquid Crystal Polymer fans allow for the fans to be quieter, thinner, more energy efficient, and most importantly, are air flowing fans, built with anti-vibrating bearings, to move heat away from critical components.
Stealth Mode – Fan Acoustic Control
Stealth Mode can be activated for dynamic thermal and acoustic control, optimising the CPU and GPU to use less power and limit the air flow acoustic volume. Meetings, sittings, and solo time can be stealth quiet at your control.
Independently User Controlled Performance and Thermal Settings
Control how much power you wish to consume, at what performance level, with full control over the active cooling fans.
External Recovery Drive
Restores factory settings and the factory image in under 10 minutes with the included external USB recovery drive. Have the freedom to upgrade, and the peace of mind knowing you can get yourself up and running when it suits you, as independently diagnose drives if you need to.
Fully loaded with only the Leanest and Meanest Software – No Bloatware
As with any Venom BlackBook, our factory image comes with fully licensed and usable software with no bloatware and all the right tools. Our Windows image is optimised for performance, and each pre-installed program has been carefully selected, customised, and installed, for the optimal user experience. You will not need to waste time installing software after you first turn on your device.
Multiple Monitors – Three Screens
Three screens – Supports 2x external monitors – Countless studies continue to show that dual monitor setups greatly improve computer usage efficiency. Dual monitors on your desk allow you to have critical information displayed on one screen for reference purposes, while utilising the second for your actual work. Have a PDF document or website open on one screen, and Microsoft Outlook or Word open on the other. The BlackBook Pro 16 will allow you to use two external monitors while still running the third screen on your BlackBook, natively. The BlackBook Pro 16 is designed to work for you, both in and out of your office, home study, or your temporary mobile office at your favourite cafe.
