Razer Announces Razer Blade Studio Edition: Quadro RTX And Improved Displaysby Brett Howse on May 27, 2019 3:30 AM EST
Hot on the heels of NVIDIA’s announcement of their latest Quadro professional GPUs, Razer is leveraging this new technology to offer up new workstation laptops based on their popular Blade models, with the Razer Blade 15 and 17 Studio Edition. The new professional laptops offer up the classic Razer CNC machined aluminum chassis, add in some new hardware, new displays, and finish off with a gorgeous Mercury White finish.
The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition will be offered with a UHD OLED touch display, and to meet the demands of professionals, will be available with 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of NVMe storage. The 15-inch model will feature the Intel Core i7-9750H, with six cores, twelve threads, and a 2.6 GHz to 4.5 GHz frequency range. For graphic demands, the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 is on tap, and the laptop will be loaded with NVIDIA’s Studio Drivers, which are formerly known as Creator Ready drivers and optimized for professional workflows such as Cinema 4D and Adobe products.
The Razer Blade Pro 17 Studio Edition takes the 17-inch Blade model and updates it with a new UHD 120 Hz display. Along with the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000, the 17-inch version gets the Core i9-9880H, which is offers eight cores, sixteen threads, and a 2.3 GHz to 4.8 GHz frequency range.
Both laptops will of course work with Razer’s Core X external GPU enclosure as well over Thunderbolt 3, if you have workloads that would benefit from dual-GPUs.
We’re waiting on full specifications from Razer, but I would expect both devices to offer at least Adobe RGB, which is something Razer already offers on several of their other laptops.
The new Studio Edition laptops will be available later this year, with pricing to be determined closer to launch.

boozed - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkIt's like an Apple with preinstalled malware
Valantar - Monday, May 27, 2019 - link?
PeachNCream - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkProbably means Windows 10 or any software with Razer's branding or any modern NVIDIA driver or that uses any Intel CPU (though I think the malware comes one of many exploits are used first) or Google Chrome or....aw you get the point.
boozed - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkYour could go on forever!
Actually I'm referring to the fraudcoin miners that Razer was putting in its stuff only a few months ago... are they still doing that?
qknorris - Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - linkRazer never did that, and a simple google search confirms it. The only way to use their crypto miner is to go to their website and manually download the beta version of the program. It was never 'put into' anything. However the miner itself is most certainly an odd concept with a lower payout than mining by yourself directly but that is a whole other discussion.
Simon_Says - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkSo it's like an Apple. 😏
PixyMisa - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkPgUp, PgDn, Home, End.
Rookierookie - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkSigh. The Razer Blade would be the perfect laptop for me - good performance, good build, good mobility, easy to open, good connectivity...
The lack of these keys is such a total dealbreaker that I cannot even consider it.
qknorris - Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - linkWhy would you need these keys? Nearly any productivity software has a keyboard mapping feature where you can assign key functions to any key combiations. And with modifiers such as shift, ctrl, and alt in addition to all the current keys the number of combinations is nearly endless. In addition to that there are multiple softwares you can download (including the built in razer keyboard one i think?) that do system wide key mapping, such as assigning say "ctrl+down arrow" to activate the page down key. Just something simple to consider before ruling it out over not having keys that you can bind yourself.
