The StudioBook One is a part of ASUS’ massively-expanded line of ProArtwork laptops, designed for “creative professionals.” The firm, like many, is making an attempt to steal a slice of Apple’s MacBook Pro pie now that the laptops have been beset by gripes round its efficiency, battery life and keyboard. Most notably, ASUS has crammed NVIDIA’s headline-grabbing professional graphics into a 15.6-inch laptop.
Yes, it has a 15.6-inch show with an 84 p.c screen-to-body ratio, and whereas it is clearly a beast, it is not as hefty as, say, some gaming laptops. That 16:9, 120Hz 4K show is Pantone Validated, with 100 p.c Adobe RGB and is lined in Gorilla Glass 5 for added sturdiness. The machine is no slouch in another division, both, with a 2.4GHz Intel Core i9-9980HK, 32GB RAM and a 1TB SSD. That Quadro RTX 6000 itself comes with 24GB of its personal GDDR6 RAM, as a result of ASUS actually is not screwing round right here.
In order to forestall this machine from roasting your lap to a crisp, the majority of the elements are literally within the prime half of the mannequin. Stacking them vertically, behind the show, means ASUS can showcase a new cooling system that is harking back to the one designed for Max-Q laptops. Open the lid of the laptop open, and the outer shell flares out on the backside by round 5 levels to attract in additional cool air.
Because the enterprise of the laptop is within the show, so is the I/O, but it surely solely has a trio of USB-C ports, each with Thunderbolt 3. The fourth, on the underside left, appears like a USB-C port, however is truly a customized three-pin energy port that is been designed to seem like the usual. We do not but have detailed specs on how lengthy this may final on the go, however we doubt that 90Wh battery will final for lengthy on the street.
We do not know when this machine will land, past a imprecise date of This fall, or how a lot it’s going to price, however given a Quadro 6000 prices 1000’s by itself, you will in all probability have to mortgage a kidney to personal one.
