Asus has revealed the StudioBook S (W700) workstation that comes with either an Intel Xeon E-2176 or an Intel Core i7-8750H processor and an Nvidia Quadro P3200 graphics card. The powerful 2.39 kg/5.27 lb laptop, which is aimed at content creation professionals, also comes with a Pantone-validated 17-inch FHD NanoEdge display and up to 64 GB DDR4 2666 MHz RAM.

Professionals looking for a mobile workstation have a new option in the form of the Asus StudioBook S (W700) device. The laptop, which was announced at CES 2019, offers a panel that the company claims can cover 97% of the DCI-P3 color space and is Pantone-validated for its color accuracy. The 17-inch screen is fitted into a 15-inch case, so you can expect pretty thin bezels on this one (an 84% screen-to-body ratio is stated).

Along with the professional-grade panel, Asus has included some other high-end components. Buyers can choose between an Intel Xeon E-2176 processor that can offer a clock rate all the way up to 4.4 GHz and an Intel Core i7-8750H processor that can manage up to 4.1 GHz. As the graphics solution, Asus has chosen the Nvidia Quadro P3200, which can ably handle demanding tasks with its 6 GB of GDDR5 memory. Up to 64 GB of RAM and storage options of up to 4 TB (PCIe NVMe Gen3 x4 SSD x2) round off the main specifications.

Unsurprisingly, being a professional workstation means the StudioBook S (W700) has to pack some serious power, but it’s also important that the laptop is truly portable. Asus has given width/depth/height measurements of 38.2 x 28.6 x 1.84 cm (15.03 x 11.25 x 0.72 in) for the workstation, which has a low weight of just 2.39 kg (5.27 lbs). There are only a few who would complain about a powerful workstation being 18.44 mm high, but it does bring up the issue of cooling.

Asus has placed five heat-pipes within the workstation’s innards to ensure the powerful components stay relatively cool. Two aluminum-alloy fans are also part of the cooling system, which Asus claims helps avoid thermal throttling, and they operate at below 35 dB even under full load. The turquoise-gray machine also offers a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support and should allow content creators to enjoy fast Internet speeds due to its Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax) connectivity.
