If your customers need powerful graphics — such as real-time ray tracing, advanced AI and hi-res video editing — Nvidia and several leading PC makers are here to help.

At this week’s SIGGRAPH 2019 conference in Los Angeles, Nvidia announced that 10 laptops and pro-grade mobile workstations are being released with support for its RTX Studio graphics. The company says this brings the total number of RTX Studio devices to 27.

“RTX Studio laptops and mobile workstations are moving rapidly to the center of the creative industries,” says Nvidia’s GM of GeForce tech, Jason Paul.
