Computex 2019: New Razer Blade laptops for content creators
Razer seems to be shifting focus from its regular gaming audience to content creators with upgraded models of the Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade Pro 17. These ‘Razer Blade Studio Edition laptops’ have been equipped with NVIDIA Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs to give creators and prosumers the latest in tech.
The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition comes with a 4K OLED touchscreen, an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, and the new NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 mobile GPU. Content creators should find such a powerful machine with a stunning display useful, to say the least.
The Razer Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition (another mouthful) also features several new components. It has a new 4K 120Hz display, an Intel Core i9-9880H processor and once again, the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 mobile GPU. These are some pretty hefty upgrades, making it an attractive content creating machine as well.
Both of these models also come with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe storage, and are equipped with NVIDIA’s studio drivers optimised for performance and content creation. The focus on content creators can also be felt in the appearance of these laptops, with Razer changing up the gaming look of the old models with a clean, Mercury White finish.
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.”
Pricing and availability for these laptops haven’t been revealed just yet, aside from a vague release date of fall 2019.
