Gaming isn’t the only thing discrete graphics solutions for laptops are good for. A high-performance GPU can also help when it comes to rendering video or 3D content in apps or websites… and they can really come in handy if you want to create content using professional photo, video, or game making applications.

But it helps if you have the right software and drivers to take full advantage of the GPUs.

So NVIDIA is taking aim at content creators with a new set of what it calls Studio Drivers and a new NVIDIA Studio Stack of SDKs. In a nutshell, the company is working with laptop makers to produce laptops with NVIDIA GPUs that are designed for content creation and not just gaming.

Razer Blade Studio Edition laptops

At Computex, NVIDIA announced that we can expect to see 17 RTX Studio laptops in the not-too-distance future. They’ll sport NVIDIA’s new software, feature an RTX Studio badge, and be available with GPU options including the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, 2070, or 2080 and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000, 4000, or 5000.

NVIDIA notes that many of the laptops feature Max-Q technology, which basically means they’ll have a lower-performance version of the GPU in order to enable long battery life and thin and light designs.

Acer and Razer have already introduced some of the first RTX Studio laptops.

The new Acer ConceptD 7 is a 4.6 pound laptop with a 15.6 inch, 3840 x 2160 pixel display with 100 percent Adobe RBG color gamut, support for up to three eternal displays, and support for up to an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU with 16GB of GDDR6 memory.

Razer’s Blade 15 Studio Edition is a 15.6 inch laptop with a 4K OLED display, an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics, while the Razer Blade 17 Pro Studioi Edition has a 17 inch 4K 120 Hz display, a Core i9-9980H processor, and the same Quadro RTX 5000 GPU.

NVIDIA says we’ll also see RX Studio laptops from Asus, Dell, Ggiabyte, HP, and MSI and that prices will start at $1599.

One reply on “NVIDIA Studio Stack brings RTX graphics to professional laptops”

  1. If you look very carefully at the Razer Laptops arrow keys, they are not in the right bottom corner. Using arrow keys all the time as a professional (and using the 15″ 2019 Razer Blade at work) makes the Razer series unequipped for professional software development work. Furthermore, the charger cable of the 2019 Blade is very thick and annoying. Lastly, they still have a giant touch pad that gets “accidentally” touched ALL THE TIME – slowing down developmental performance. I would think twice about purchasing a Razer for professional work.
