The company Razer has so far attracted attention primarily through its gaming products. The new “Studio Edition” of the Razer Blade series will also appeal to “Content Creators”, i.e. professional users who need a notebook for animation, audio, video and image editing. The design of the notebooks has, since this target group currently often falls back on the MacBook Pro, slightly similar to Apple. Instead of the typical black for Razer, the Studio Edition devices are kept in “Mercury White”.
The Studio Edition of the Razer Blade is available as a 15-inch and a 17-inch model. The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition features an Intel Core i7 9750H (6 cores, 12 threads) with 2.60 GHz base clock and 4.50 GHz turbo clock. In the 17-inch model, Razer even uses an Intel Core i9 9880H (8 cores, 16 threads) with 2.30 GHz base clock and 4.80 GHz turbo clock. The basic equipment also offers a very good 32 GB RAM and a 1 TB NVMe SSD. The OLED display with touch support also convinces with 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) and 120 Hz refresh rate. For the graphics cards, Razer relies exclusively on Nvidia chips such as the Quadro RTX 5000.
The Studio Laptop certification presented by Nvidia at Computex 2019 also received both Studio editions from Razer. In combination with special drivers, this promises high performance, especially for professional applications such as Adobe Suite.
Users who need even more performance could connect an external Rater Core X graphics solution to render content over two GPUs, just like with the manufacturer’s gaming models.
The Razer Blade Studio editions presented at IFA 2019 will be launched in autumn 2019. Exact prices are not yet known, but with the larger equipment variants are clearly over 4,000 euro realistic.
