Lambda, a company known for building deep learning-focused PCs, and Razer have teamed up to release a new version of the Tensorbook, a slim laptop with machine learning chops. The notebook is packed to the gills with hardware designed for AI development, comes preinstalled with lots of Lambda's software, and has some solid gaming capabilities.

Lambda, a company focused on creating machine learning software and building PCs that can run it, and Razer today announced the new Razer x Lambda Tensorbook, a powerful and beautiful new laptop designed specifically for deep learning.

The new Tensorbook is packed with high-end hardware picked specifically for machine learning. It runs on an Intel Tiger Lake Core i7-11800H CPU (8 core, up to 4.6 GHz) and an NVIDIA RTX 3080 Max-Q GPU (16 GB VRAM). The Tensorbook comes pre-installed with 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and 2 TB of SSD storage. All of this is wrapped in a relatively thin aluminum chassis that evokes the Razer Blade in design. The Tensorbook has Thunderbolt 4 and three USB-A 3.2 ports, as well as an HDMI port and an SD card reader.

The new Tensorbook ships with Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS, although there is an option to dual-boot Windows, and comes pre-installed with a handful of Lambda's machine learning software, dubbed "Lambda Stack." This includes PyTorch, TensorFlow, CUDA, cuDNN, and drivers for the NVIDIA GPU. Lambda will also throw in a full year of engineering support.

Stephen Balaban, the co-founder and CEO of Lambda, said that the new Tensorbook aims to solve a problem encountered by many machine learning engineers by creating an individual machine dedicated to AI and DL development. He stated:

Most ML engineers don’t have a dedicated GPU laptop, which forces them to use shared resources on a remote machine, slowing down their development cycle. When you’re stuck SSHing into a remote server, you don’t have any of your local data or code and even have a hard time demoing your model to colleagues. The Razer x Lambda Tensorbook solves this. It’s pre-installed with PyTorch and TensorFlow and lets you quickly train and demo your models: all from a local GUI interface. No more SSH!

The new Razer x Lambda Tensorbook is available now from Lambda (lambdalabs.com) for US$3499.
