Razer has unveiled pricing for its top-end Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition with Quadro RTX 5000 graphics and it's ... actually not too bad? Equipped in the standard configuration, it comes with a 16GB Quadro RTX 5000 card, 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-2667 MHz RAM, a 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD and a 15.6-inch OLED 4K touch display. All of that costs $4,000, compared to $3,300 for the top end Razer Blade 15 Advanced model with half the VRAM, memory and storage.

With the Quadro, NVIDIA promises better stability and compatibility with professional apps like Adobe Premiere Pro and 3DS Max compared to GeForce. Buying a standalone Quadro RTX 5000 card for a desktop workstation costs $2,300 by itself, compared to the gaming equivalent RTX 2080 that starts at $700 -- $1,600 less.

Razer's Blade 15 Advanced gets an optical mechanical keyboard

  Razer's Blade 15 Advanced gets an optical mechanical keyboard We've seen gaming laptops with mechanical keyboards before, but Razer is taking things to a new level with the latest Blade 15 Advanced. It's the first notebook to feature an optical mechanical keyboard, meaning it relies on light sensors instead of physical switches to register inputs. We first saw those switches on the Razer Huntsman Elite, and we weren't too impressed. But they may serve a greater purpose on a laptop, since they allow for a thin profile keyboard with a decent amount of feedback. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Razer ' s second generation of the Core, the Core V2, retains the beautiful lighting and handsome chassis that we've come to expect from Razer , with a few key refinements. The chassis has gotten a little bigger to support more powerful GPUs, including workstation -grade components.

Is a mobile workstation right for you ? Frankly, for most laptop users, the answer is no. But if you work in one of the professional fields mentioned As with gaming laptops , all but a handful of mobile workstations draw on the speed and strength of a dedicated or discrete graphics adapter rather than

Other than the GPU and its extra VRAM, the Studio Edition shares the same Thunderbolt 3 port, three USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen 2) ports, DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0b. One big difference is that it has a UHS-III card reader that supports speeds up to 624 MB/s, though UHS-III cards aren't yet supported by any camera manufacturers.

The Blade 15 Studio Edition is among 17 laptops that are part of NVIDIA's RTX Studio program. Qualifying laptops have both NVIDIA Quadro and GeForce graphics, but come with NVIDIA's Studio drivers that are geared more for stability than speed. So far, we haven't seen pricing for many of the Quadro RTX laptops, but Razer's offering has now set the standard for others to follow.
