Razer has released its Blade Studio Edition laptops for creators and prosumers.

The line will feature upgraded models of the Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade Pro 17, with the latest NVIDIA Quadro RTX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics processors.

The Razer Blade Studio Edition laptops are anodised with a Mercury White finish, equipped with 4K displays, upgraded to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe storage, and loaded with NVIDIA's Studio Drivers optimised for performance with creative applications.

“Razer Blades have become the laptop of choice for users desiring uncompromising performance in a premium design,” says Razer systems business unit senior vice president Brad Wildes,

“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 4K OLED touch display, an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, and an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 mobile GPU.

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 graphics cards like the NVIDIA Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs, Razer Core X can greatly accelerate the workflow 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.

“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,” says NVIDIA GeForce software and technology general manager Jason Paul.

“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.
