ASUS has announced a new mobile workstation at the Consumer Electronics Show, the StudioBook S. The laptop offers a 17-inch display in the 16:10 aspect ratio at Full HD (1920x1200) resolution, but it has the size of a typical 15-inch laptop thanks to the company's NanoEdge technology, with bezels at just 5.4mm on the sides and top of the display. The panel also covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color range, and it's PANTONE Validated, so color accuracy shouldn't be an issue.
On the inside, the laptop is powered by either an Intel Core i7-8750H or an Intel Xeon E-2176M processor, both of which offer six cores and twelve threads, though the Xeon will provide higher clock speeds. As for graphics, Nvidia's Quadro P3200 with 6GB of GDDR5 memory seems to be the only option. The internals are kept cool by a thermal solution that maxes out at 35 dB.
Other specs include up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, 4TB of SSD storage with support for RAID 0/1 configurations, and a 57Wh battery to keep things running on the go. As for connectivity, the machine supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, Bluetooth 5.0, and it's got a fair number of ports, including one HDMI 2.0, one Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C port, 3 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an SD card reader, and an audio combo jack.
The StudioBook S is slated to arrive in the spring, with pricing and availability being disclosed at a later date.
