New Asus ProArt StudioBook 15 H500 and StudioBook 17 H700 to ditch Quadro RTX graphics for the GeForce RTX 2060
Asus wants to make a huge splash in the professional workstation market as evident by its quicky-expanding ProArt series of high-end workstation laptops. The existing StudioBook Pro W series will now be joined by the less expensive StudioBook H series. These models will be exactly the same as the StudioBook Pro W series except with GeForce RTX 2060 graphics instead of the Quadro RTX 5000.
The switch to GeForce RTX graphics will help bump down the price significantly. When compared to the $4000 StudioBook Pro W500 with Quadro RTX graphics, the StudioBook H500 starts at just $2000 USD. Asus is hoping to attract more content creators and professionals who may not require a workstation-class GPU.
The new 15.6-inch ProArt StudioBook 15 H500 and 17.3-inch H700 can be found online at Amazon, the Asus Store, and Adorama. The series competes against other stylish professional laptops like the Razer Blade Pro Studio series, MSI Prestige series, and the newly announced HP ZBook Create.
