Computex 2019 | Nvidia debuts the Studio platform to help pair creators with their ideal notebooks
Nvidia has launched a new concept at Computex this year. Known as Studio, it is directed at artists of various disciplines who use PCs to work. To this end, the new iniative is a system of hardware validation, the results of which are then paired with the Studio Stack suite to boost particular areas of performance and reliability.
The Nvidia Studio Stack includes SDKs and APIs for developers to make new or better creator-focused apps. It also incorporates Studio Drivers, which "supercharge" apps from vendors such as Adobe. This software is installed on laptops that meet Nvidia's new Studio requirements. They call for notebooks with Max-Q thin and light form factors and up to 4K HDR displays. They should be powered by Core i7 or i9 chipsets, and have a minimum of either RTX 2060 or Quadro 3000 graphics cards.
Nvidia Studio was introduced on stage at Computex with the help of 3 prominent creators whose work is relevant to PC-aided design. They were Daniel Gregoire, the CEO and found of HALON Entertainment (a Hollywood-level visual arts group that uses Unreal Engine and is known for work on the Aquaman DC movie); Juan Salvo, CEO of theColourSpace and a world-class finishing artist; and Leo Chou, an architect whose company TCImage has recently used ray-tracing in its accomplishments.
The inaugural round of Nvidia Studio certifications include some notebooks that have also featured at Computex 2019. They are the Acer ConceptD 7 and 9; the ASUS StudioBook 700G3T and W500; the ZenBook Pro Duo; Dell's Alienware m15 Creators Edition; the Gigabyte AEROs 15 and 17; HP’s OMEN X 2S and 15 GeForce RTX Studios; the Razer Blade 15 and Pro 17 Studio Editions; and MSI's WS65, WS75, WE75, P65 and P75. They are all now entitled to bear the new Nvidia Studio badge at launch.
