TAIPEI, Taiwan (COMPUTEX 2019) – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Blade Studio Edition laptops for creators and prosumers. The line will feature upgraded models of the award-winning Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade Pro 17, equipped with the latest NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ graphics processors.
The Razer Blade Studio Edition laptops are anodized with a striking Mercury White finish, equipped with 4K displays, upgraded to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe storage, and loaded with NVIDIA’s Studio Drivers optimized for performance with creative applications.
Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Systems business unit said, “Razer Blades have become the laptop of choice for users desiring uncompromising performance in a premium design. Now, with the power of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs, the Razer Blade Studio Edition will exceed the demands of professional content creators.”
- The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition will be available with a gorgeous 4K OLED touch display, an Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor, and an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 mobile GPU. The superior processing power of NVIDIA Quadro® and vivid colors of the OLED display makes the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition perfect for creators who are always on the go.
- The Razer Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition will feature a series of firsts, including a new 4K 120Hz display panel, an Intel® Core™ i9-9880H processor, and the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 mobile GPU. These major upgrades to the Razer Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition allow it to rival even the most powerful of desktop workstations.
Creatives familiar with working on a traditional desktop PC can connect a Razer Blade Studio Edition laptop to the Razer Core X external graphics accessory to create a desktop-class experience on a mobile laptop. With support for desktop PCIe graphic cards like the NVIDIA Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs, Razer Core X can greatly accelerate the work flow and reduce lengthy rendering times. Applications allowing for dual-GPU rendering will enable users to put both the internal laptop and external desktop graphics to work to provide even better performance.
Razer has a history of supporting the creative community, launching Razer Music in 2016 which provided artists with a powerful but portable solution for music production. In 2018, Razer launched the #MadeWithBlade campaign to expand their support of artists beyond music and into game development, visual effects, and more.
“The combination of NVIDIA Quadro and GeForce RTX GPUs with Razer’s sleek design and up to 4K display make for an excellent laptop for content creation,” said Jason Paul, general manager of GeForce software and technology at NVIDIA. “The ray tracing, AI, and 6K+ video prowess of the Razer Blade RTX Studio laptops will free artists from their desks and allow them to create amazing art from anywhere.”
#MadeWithBlade continues to grow and currently features artists such as Murda Beatz, Sonny Digital and the ODESZA Live Visual team, with many more to come. More information on #MadeWithBlade can be found here.
Studio Edition Blades will be made available later this year. Official pricing and availability to be announced at a later date. For more information head to razer.com/studio.
