During the company’s press conference in the city of Taipei a day before the Computex event starts, Nvidia has announced that it would release its new line up of laptops that will run on its RTX graphics processing units, as well as launching a brand new software platform which is called Studio that will have SDKs and drivers to make graphics rendering and other similar tasks run on faster processes. These laptop units will be targeted towards creative professionals such as photographers, video editors as well as graphic designers, and this line of laptops will be meant to compete with the 15-inch MacBook Pro form Apple.
The series will in total include seventeen laptops that will be made by Nvidia’s manufacturing partners which include companies such as Acer, Dell, ASUS, HP, Gigabyte, MSI and even Razer, the company known for making high end multimedia and gaming laptops. These laptops will hit the retail markets in the beginning of June, and the starting prices of these laptops will be pegged at $1,599.
These 17 laptops will all be equipped with the Quadro RTX 3000, 4000 or 5000 GPUs or GeForce RTX 2080, 2070 and 2060 GPUs. The company claims that their line of laptops can perform up to seven times faster than the MacBook Pro from Apple. Studio laptops with Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs will have 16GB of graphics memory, and some of the devices will also have 4K displays and Nvidia’s Max-Q tech for building thin and lightweight laptops.
The Nvidia Studio suite includes the CUDA-X AI platform for automating tasks like color matching videos or tagging photos.
