In its press conference held earlier today, Nvidia took the opportunity to unveil its new Nvidia Studio platform which aims to "dramatically improve performance and reliability for the world’s 40 million online and studio-based creatives" who rely on top-tier PC hardware to deliver their work. PCs that combine hardware, in the form of RTX GPUs, in addition to a "Studio Stack of specialized SDKs and dedicated Studio Drivers" from other solutions, will also be distinguished by a new RTX Studio badge.
In support of the new platform, a total of 17 RTX Studio laptops were today announced some of which will feature the latest Quadro RTX GPUs with up to 16GB GDDR6 RAM or solutions from the consumer RTX lineup. In terms of manufacturer support, Acer, Asus, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, MSI, and Razer will have RTX Studio laptops "available starting in June" with pricing starting from $1,599, with many incorporating 4K displays and Max-Q technology.
With respect to the Nvidia Studio platform, Jason Paul, Nvidia general manager of GeForce software and technology, said:
"NVIDIA Studio pairs RTX GPUs, which enable real-time ray tracing, AI processing and high-resolution video editing, with studio-grade software to surpass the growing demands of today’s creators. The new RTX Studio laptops are the perfect tool for creatives who need desktop-class performance while on the go."
Rounding out the software side of the equation is Studio Stack that brings SDKs, APIs, and drivers to help enable content creators to achieve "the best performance and reliability when working with creative apps", particularly those with multi-app workflows that leverage solutions from major developers including Adobe, Blackmagic, and Unity, amongst others.
Those interested in getting their hands on the Nvidia Studio Driver should keep their eyes peeled for the latest version that will be made available today, boasting optimizations for software such as Autodesk 3ds Max 2020 and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 16.
