Create stunning content with RTX Studio laptops

The latest NVIDIA Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs utilize the NVIDIA Turingarchitecture and are the first to support real‑time ray tracing, capable of rendering beautiful scenes with more accurate light effects, shadows, and reflections. The AI prowess of RTX GPUs handles time‑consuming, repetitive tasks such as accelerating upscaling, photo enhancements, colour matching, face tagging, and style transfer. The latest ASUS laptops, including ZenBook Pro Duo, StudioBook W700G3T, and StudioBook W500, take advantage of RTX capabilities, catering to the needs of content creators and meeting the stringent requirements of the NVIDIA RTX Studio program. RTX Studio laptops are precision crafted to deliver dramatic improvements in productivity and performance across everyday creative apps.
