While I can say with some certainty that AMD has won Computex this year with the very successful official announcements for the Zen 2 lineup of chips, their competitors in the GPU department still put on quite a show. Nvidia had a couple of tricks up its sleeves as well, this time instead focusing on content creators as opposed to gamers.

During their keynote at Computex yesterday, Nvidia officially unveiled its newest content-creating beasts: the powerful RTX Studio laptops, fully equipped with very serious hardware. These notebooks are very much different to the existing ones powered by Max-Q GPU variants; the RTX cards in these laptops are made for serious content creation, meaning there’s no compromises made for the horsepower you get.

From the outset, the laptops are going to feature RTX graphics cards equipped with dedicated ray-tracing technology, plus AI hardware made possible by the Quadro and existing GeForce lineups. Across the confirmed cards for these RTX Studio laptops, we see that the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 cards will be utilized. Of course, if you’re serious about power, then there is a solution for you: an incredibly powerful to the point of overkill Quadro RTX 5000. Check out the spec sheets for the upcoming laptops down below.

This sort of power basically guarantees that the laptops can cross hurdles on par with desktops, but with added portability. The hardware also comes with Nvidia’s proprietary software and drivers, called the Nvidia Studio Drivers. Think of it as a reimagining of the Creator Ready drivers that Nvidia rolled out earlier this year, only this time it powers very capable RTX cards. The Studio Drivers are expected to optimize for best performance with the most popular creative apps such as the Unity and Unreal game engines, the DaVinci Resolve video editor, the Adobe Creative Cloud of apps, and so many more.

Expect to see a ton of major laptop vendors retailing RTX Studio laptops soon, as Nvidia announced that it will roll out support for 17 major devices from seven different vendors. These vendors include Acer, Asus, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, MSI and Razer. In fact, two of these vendors – Acer and Razer – already have laptops that are set to get the RTX Studio treatment; the Razer Blade Studio Edition and the Acer ConceptD 7 will feature Quadro RTX 5000 cards and both come paired with a 4K display for good measure.
