ProArt StudioBook One: The world’s most graphically-powerful laptop

Creators are increasingly mobile, yet the most powerful hardware is traditionally found in bulky desktop systems. ProArt StudioBook One, the world’s most graphically-powerful laptop, frees creators from the constraints of desktop-bound systems and gives them access to workstation-grade power wherever they are.

ʺPowered by Quadro RTX 6000 graphics, ProArt StudioBook One is the flagship of our RTX Studio line of laptops, designed for the most demanding creative and technical users,ʺ said Bob Pette, Vice President, Professional Visualization, NVIDIA. ʺIt delivers extreme power and portability for those working with live virtual production, real-time 8K editing, data analytics, CAD design and simulation, and other data-heavy workloads to create stunning, immersive content fast and efficiently from any location.ʺ

The Quadro RTX GPU provides users with more CUDA, RT, and Tensor cores, enabling real-time viewing of environmental shading and lighting effects, with ultra-smooth and ultrafast rendering of animations, effortless 8K video editing and efficient data-crunching on the go.

To do justice to this awesome graphics power, a stunning display is needed that delivers creators’ stringent requirements for color accuracy and detail. The 4K UHD PANTONE Validated display on ProArt StudioBook One is truly amazing, boasting a superfast 120Hz refresh rate and edge-to-edge glass that sits flush with the bezels. Its 84% screen-to-body ratio provides immersive visuals, while the wide 100% Adobe RGB color gamut and Delta-E value of <1 ensure exceptional color reproduction and accuracy.

ASUS worked closely with NVIDIA in the development of ProArt StudioBook One, with the top-of-the-line model getting its Oneʹ name to differentiate it from other models in the range. It also has the ‘ProArt’ logo below the display.

ProArt StudioBook One has a powerful cooling system featuring a lightweight aerospace-grade titanium-alloy thermal module designed to optimize inlet and exhaust flow. All heat-generating components, including the CPU, GPU, and thermal systems are located in the lid to ensure comfortable use, even when placed on the user’s lap. When the laptop is opened, the outer cover of the lid opens automatically by 4.57° to aid cooling.

For creatives, software is key, which is why ASUS tests and invests in comprehensive Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certification processes to ensure users enjoy the very best experience with professional software applications.

ProArt StudioBook Pro X: The first Quadro laptop with a secondary display

Creators are a diverse community, and the ProArt StudioBook series is tailored to recognize this diversity with models designed to meet a wide range of creative requirements, allowing creators to unlock their full potential.

ProArt StudioBook Pro X delivers extreme performance, so users can edit and render multilayered files with professional-grade NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics, aided by the power of 9th Generation Intel Xeon or Intel Core i7 hexa-core processors that are designed to handle complex, multithreaded applications. ISV certification ensures that users can enjoy optimized stability and performance with their preferred professional software apps. Additionally, ProArt StudioBook Pro X is designed to operate at full load without the need to throttle the speed of the CPU or GPU, making it outstandingly reliable for even the toughest workloads.

Creators need out-of-the-ordinary visuals. ProArt StudioBook Pro X is designed to deliver exceptionally accurate color, and is the first Quadro laptop to feature a PANTONE Validated four-sided NanoEdge display with a wide 97% DCI-P3 gamut, along with a 92% screen-to-body ratio and a 16:10 aspect ratio for truly immersive and precise visuals.

Versatile connectivity and the ability to easily transfer large files is provided by Thunderbolt™ 3 ports and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). CPU-attached RAID 0 ensures the fastest possible storage performance, with speeds of up to 6 GB/s compared to the typical 4 GB/s SSDs.

For the ultimate creative touch, ProArt StudioBook Pro X is also the first in the series to feature ScreenPad 2.0. This interactive secondary touchscreen upgrades the traditional laptop experience, providing users with an intuitive smartphone-like interface on which they can easily manage tasks and create their own seamless multitasking creative workflows.

The compact size of this 17-inch laptop is comparable to that of many 15-inch laptops, slipping easily into a briefcase or messenger bag for professional-grade graphics on-the-go. It looks good, too: its Star Grey finish with Rose gold highlights giving it a classy look.
