Creators, start your engines. Nvidia is heading Siggraph, an annual professional graphics conference, with a pair of announcements designed to make life simpler for industry diehards and amateur video producers alike. The corporate revealed 10 new RTX Studio laptops from a wide range of partners, and new Studio drivers that convey capabilities formerly locked to Quadro GPUs alone over to the more mainstream GeForce and Titan lineups.
Nvidia introduced RTX Studio laptops at Computex in May. These laptops run highly effective Max-Q hardware to make an intense video- and picture-editing as painless and portable as possible, backed by drivers dedicated to optimizing creative software rather than games.
- GPU: RTX 2060, Quadro RTX 3000
- CPU: Intel Core i7 (H-series)
- RAM: 16GB
- Display: 1080p or 4K
- SSD: 512GB
The initiative launched with 17 laptops from Acer, Asus, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, MSI, and Razer. At Siggraph on Monday, ten new models have been announced.
Nvidia’s releasing freshly updated Studio drivers to coincide with the announcement, and it unlocks a brand new feature for prosumers. The brand new Studio driver finally brings 30-bit (10bpc) color support in OpenGL applications to GeForce and Titan GPUs.
“With 24-bit color, a pixel might be constructed from 16.7 million shades of color. By increasing to 30-bit color, a pixel can now be built from over 1 billion shades of color, which eliminates the abrupt changes in shades of the identical color,” Nvidia’s announcement post explains. The feature helps “seamless color transitions without banding.”
