NVIDIA announced the RTX Studio systems lineup, a series of high-performance laptops and systems that are specially designed for professional content creators to work faster and more efficiently. These RTX Studio laptops and systems are available in various designs and specifications from the participating partners, but just what makes it so different from other high-performance GeForce RTX powered laptops and prebuilt systems?
What Makes of RTX Studio Laptops & Systems
Specifications wise, it’s actually very similar the high-performance laptops and prebuilt systems made for gaming but the laptop or prebuilt system have to meet a minimum system requirement in order to qualify for RTX Studio listing:
- GPU: GeForce RTX 2060 or higher
- CPU: Intel Core i7 or higher
- Memory: 16GB or more
- Storage: SSD with 512GB capacity or more
- Display: 1080p or 4K
The strict minimum requirement for RTX Studio products ensures creators to work better and efficiently without running out of resources in just minutes after the started working on the system.
While it’s true that you can also take advantage of GPU acceleration for creative works using the GeForce GTX 10 series and GTX 16 series graphics cards, the dedicated RT cores and Tensor cores on the GeForce RTX cards enables content creators to work faster and create better content using creative software like Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and more.
Content creators can take advantage of these RT cores and Tensor cores present on the GeForce RTX cards to accelerate the speed of photorealistic content creation using real-time ray tracing and make use of the AI-enhanced features on creative software to make better content. Apart from the RT cores and Tensor cores, GeForce RTX GPUs also feature a new improved version of NVIDIA’s dedicated hardware encoder, NVENC, that runs 25% faster on HEVC and 15% faster on H.264 on video encoding as compared to the previous generation GeForce GPUs.
NVIDIA Studio Drivers for RTX Studio Laptops & Systems
These GeForce RTX laptops and systems are indeed a mobile powerhouse workstation for content creators who are working on the go and NVIDIA have actually worked on specific drivers that are specially optimized for creative software used to create 3D animation, video editing, photography, graphics design, architectural visualization, and even broadcasting.
Depending on the specifications of the RTX Studio products, creators can download these tailor-made NVIDIA Studio drivers for GeForce RTX or Quadro RTX GPUs to get started with. The NVIDIA Studio drivers are compatible with the existing GTX 10 series and new GTX 16 series GPUs but RTX GPUs are recommended as creators can take advantage of all the advanced features available for faster content creation and produce high-quality content at the same time.
And just in case if you wanted to take a break and game on these RTX Studio systems, NVIDIA got that covered. Switching between the Game Ready drivers and NVIDIA Studio drivers is surprisingly easy with GeForce Experience, as there’s a toggle option that is available on the menu that allows you to switch between the two when necessary.
Getting Creators Ready for DirectX 12 Ultimate and Windows 10 version 2004 Update
With Microsoft rolling out DirectX 12 Ultimate graphics API alongside the new Windows 10 version 2004 update, the NVIDIA Studio drivers have also been updated to ensure that the RTX GPUs are ready for DirectX 12 Ultimate as creators update their Windows 10 version. NVIDIA also added support for the new hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling feature on Windows 10 2004 update that helps to further improve performance and reduces latency in certain 3D and video applications.
Apart from getting the RTX GPUs ready for the new DirectX 12 Ultimate and Windows 10 version 2004 update, the latest version of the NVIDIA Studio drivers has also been validated the latest GPU-accelerated creative software such as Chaos V-Ray 5, Corel Painter 2021, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Substance Alchemist, and Blender Cycles.
