Gaming company Razer refreshed its Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop in April, bringing support for up to an Intel Core i7-10875H processor, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics, and up to a 300 Hz display.
Now Razer has launched a new Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition laptop designed for mobile workstation use for folks looking for a machine to use for professional graphics applications.
The new pro version of the laptop shares a lot of DNA with its gaming-focused sibling. But it has a white chassis instead of black, and it swaps NVIDIA’s GeForce gaming graphics processor for an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU.
Oh, and it’s expensive — a Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition with a 10th-gen Intel Core processor sells for $4300.
To be fair, you get a pretty powerful computer for that price tag. The pound laptop features an Intel Core i7-10875H octa-core processor, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-2933 memory, and a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD.
The Studio Edition version of the notebook only comes with one display option — a 15. inch, 4K OLED touchscreen display with a 60 Hz refresh rate and 100-percent DCI-P3 color gamut.
But you are paying a premium for the Quadro graphics — a virtually identical model with GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics costs $1000 less.
Other features common to both models include an 80Wh battery, Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera, and a backlit keyboard with per-key RGB lighting.
The notebook measures 14″ x 9.3″ x 0.7″ and weighs 4.85 pounds.
