Asus unveiled its ProArt StudioBook laptops at the IFA 2019 tech show in Berlin, Germany, with the company claiming that the ProArt StudioBook One is the ' most graphically powerful laptop ' in the world.
With an Nvidia Quadro RTX 6000 graphics card and an Intel Core i9 processor, as well as a 15-inch 4K Pantone-validated display with 120Hz refresh rate, it is certainly an incredibly powerful mobile workstation that is aimed at digital creatives and professionals.
- These are the best business laptops from 2019
- The best laptops for photographers
- What about the best laptops in general?
According to Bob Pette, vice president of Professional Visualization at Nvidia, the laptop delivers "extreme power and portability for those working with live virtual production, real-time 8K editing, data analysis, CAD design and simulation and other data-heavy workloads to create stunning, immersive content quickly and efficiently from anywhere
Of course, for anyone who doesn't need that level of performance, the Asus ProArt StudioBook One will be a big overkill, so Asus also announced a range of professional ProArt StudioBook laptops for different budgets.
The ProArt StudioBook family
IFA 2019 also saw the launch of the 17-inch ProArt StudioBook Pro X, which Asus says is the first Quadro laptop with a four-sided NanoEdge screen.
This should make the laptop impressively slim and modern, and means that this 17-inch laptop has similar dimensions to 15-inch laptops. In fact, you get a larger screen without affecting how portable the laptop is. It comes with a Quadro RTX 5000 GPU and a 9th generation Intel Xeon or Core i7 processor.
It is also the first quadro-powered laptop with a secondary screen in the form of the ScreenPad 2.0, a touchscreen that replaces the traditional touchpad that is usually used on laptops.
The laptops from the Asus ProArt StudioBook series will be available in October 2019 and prices will be confirmed later – although you don't expect them to be cheap with these types of specifications.
