Contrary to the popular, yet the misplaced belief that PCs are a dying breed, personal computers are going to increase their market share. Yes, people are consuming 4K and VR content on our smart devices or VR headsets, which essentially replace PCs, but what platform do creators and innovators use to creating this amazing content?

Not smartphones. Not iPads. It’s PCs.

Nvidia has teamed up with Asus to build ProArt StudioBook One laptop, which Nvidia calls the world’s most powerful laptop. The system was announced at the IFA 2019 event. Nvidia has not disclosed much information about the system, what we do know is that it will be powered by Intel’s Core i9-9980HK CPU and feature Nvidia’s Quadro RTX 6000 GPU.

These GPUs are among the most powerful and advanced GPUs designed to offer features like real-time ray tracing, AI and 8K RED video acceleration to millions of creative and technical professionals.

“Creatives and other pros using mobile platforms powered by the Quadro RTX 6000 can harness the advanced features and performance of RTX to work on their most demanding projects from anywhere they choose,” said Bob Pette, vice president of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA.

We don’t yet know the pricing, but since the desktop version of Quadro RTX 6000 GPU sells for $4,000, ProArt StudioBook One won’t be a cheap laptop. I would certainly love to get it in my arsenal as we are starting AR/VR coverage in TFiR.

PC World has done a great analysis of this system, do check it out.
