What you need to know
- Razer is one of the first PC manufacturers to embrace NVIDIA's new RTX Studio program for creators.
- The new Blade Studio Editions come packed with Quado RTX 5000 and GeForce RTX graphics, high-end processors, and loads of storage space and RAM.
- Geared toward content creators, the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition and Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition should be able to easily handle everything from video rendering to photo editing and 3D model work.
Razer today added to its growing lineup of Blade laptops with a pair catered to content creators. As part of NVIDIA's new RTX Studio certification, the two laptops come with plenty of high-end power and storage space to handle multitasking with resource-heavy tasks like 3D model creation and video rendering.
First up is the new Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, which comes with a 4K OLED touch display that should make for crisp images, vibrant colors, and inky blacks. Backing that screen up is an Intel Core i7-9750 processor, NVIDIA's new Quadro RTX 5000 mobile GPU with 16GB of VRAM, 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage.
The new Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition, meanwhile, sets the bar a little higher with a speedy 4K 120Hz display panel. Inside is Intel's Core i9-9880H processor, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics, 32GB of RAM, and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage.
Both laptops come in an anodized "Mercury White" finish and include NVIDIA's Studio drivers to bring added benefits to the performance of creative applications like DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Lightroom. If you need to step things down a notch, Razer says the systems will be available with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX graphics chips as well.
As for availability, Razer only says that the Studio Edition Blades will be available "later this year." Likewise, pricing details will arrive at a later date.
The newer models of the Razer Pro 15 are gaming powerhouses with NVIDIA RTX graphics, Intel Core 9th generation processing, and a variety of high-quality displays.
Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC
Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.
KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse ($30 at Amazon)
Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.
AmazonBasics USB speakers ($16 at Amazon)
These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.
Razer mouse bungee ($20 at Amazon)
Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
