New designs from Dell, HP and BOXX join suite of 17 other OEM systems that provide real-time ray tracing, advanced AI and high-resolution video editing capabilities.
NVIDIA has just announced that a new set of 10 NVIDIA RTX Studio laptops and mobile workstations have been released by technology OEM partners Dell, HP and BOXX, all delivering real-time ray tracing, advanced AI and ultra-high-resolution video editing.
These new designs bring the number of RTX Studio models to 27 — including 17 that are now available. The extensive set of NVIDIA RTX features is being showcased this week at SIGGRAPH 2019, being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. In addition to a number of NVIDIA hardware partners, a large number of software vendors, including Adobe, Autodesk and Blackmagic Design, will be demonstrating how their products take advantage RTX’s capabilities during the course of the exhibition.
RTX Studio laptops and mobile workstations are part of the NVIDIA Studio platform, which combines RTX GPUs with the NVIDIA Studio Stack of specialized SDKs and dedicated Studio Drivers. The systems all meet the hardware and software requirements needed to receive the new RTX Studio badge, which lets creators easily identify the specially configured mobile systems.
NVIDIA also announced the availability of a new NVIDIA Studio Driver, which provides optimizations for popular creative apps, including OTOY Octane Render, Blender, Autodesk Arnold, Maxon Cinema 4D, Substance Painter by Adobe and Magix VEGAS Pro. The latest Studio Driver adds an often-requested feature – support for 30-bit color in OpenGL apps such as Adobe Photoshop and Premiere for all GPUs. With this feature, creators can work with their HDR photos and videos with full accuracy and without the banding typical of 24-bit color.
According to Jason Paul, general manager of GeForce software and technology at NVIDIA, “RTX Studio laptops and mobile workstations are moving rapidly to the center of the creative industries. They put real-time ray tracing, advanced AI and video editing in ultra-high resolution within easy reach of creators, delivering capabilities in a mobile form factor that once required an entire studio.”
- Lenovo Legion Y740 Laptop Studio Edition features up to GeForce RTX 2080 GPUs within 17- and 15-inch laptops, available later this fall.
- Lenovo ThinkPad P53 and P73 mobile workstations support up to Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs within 17- and 15-inch systems. The ThinkPad P53 is available now; the ThinkPad P73 will be available starting August.
- Dell Precision 7540 and Dell Precision 7740 mobile workstations, available today, are configurable with up to Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs.
- HP ZBook 15 and 17 mobile workstations feature Quadro RTX GPUs, with the 17-inch model configurable with up to a Quadro RTX 5000.
- BOXX GoBOXX SLM mobile workstations are available with a Quadro RTX 3000 GPU in the 15-inch system and either Quadro RTX 4000 or 3000 in the 17-inch system.
Rigorous hardware and software testing of RTX Studio systems and drives ensures compatibility with top creative applications and workflows. RTX Studio mobile workstations based on Quadro RTX GPUs provide additional enterprise-level benefits, such as ISV certifications, IT management tools and advanced video and display features.
RTX Studio systems feature GeForce RTX 2080, 2070 and 2060 GPUs, as well as Quadro RTX 5000, 4000 and 3000 GPUs. RTX GPUs accelerate content creation from video editing to 3D rendering, with performance up to 7x faster than that of the MacBook Pro. Quadro RTX 5000 GPU-based models include 16GB of graphics memory, the largest available in a mobile form factor, enabling advanced multi-app creative workflows and the use of large 3D models that are otherwise not possible on the go. Many of these laptops feature 4K precision displays and NVIDIA Max-Q technology, enabling incredible performance and longer battery life in thin-and-light designs.
RTX Studio models available now include Acer ConceptD 7, Gigabyte AERO 15 OLED and AERO 17 HDR, BOXX GoBOXX SLM 15 and 17, Dell Precision 7540 and 7740, HP ZBook 15 and 17, Lenovo ThinkPad P53, MSI P65 Creator, P75 Creator, WS65, WS75 and WE75, and Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition. Additional RTX Studio laptops are shipping later this year from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Razer.
