ASUSTek Computer Inc. I am sure most of the people who are reading this are familiar with this company, if not all because to be very honest I had not heard about this company before 2014. So basically in 2014, I heard the name of ASUS for the first time and then later got to know that it is a Taiwanese multinational computer and phone hardware and electronics company. This company is headquartered in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan. And its major products include desktop computers, laptops, netbooks, mobile phones, networking equipment, monitors, wi-fi routers, projectors, motherboards, graphics cards, optical storage, multimedia products, peripherals, wearables, servers, workstations, and tablet PCs. The company is more popularly known as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Asus is the world’s 5th-largest PC vendor as stated by the unit sales as of January 2021. Not only that but Asus appears in BusinessWeek’s “InfoTech 100” and “Asia’s Top 10 IT Companies” rankings, and it ranked first in the IT Hardware category of the 2008 Taiwan Top 10 Global Brands survey with a total brand value of $1.3 billion.
Now latest news brings in that ASUS is soon going to offer a brand new segment of ProArt Creator series laptops featuring AMD Ryzen CPUs & NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs. The ProArt StudioBook series has been exclusive to the Intel CPU lineup for a while now but ASUS is going to expand its options by going the Ryzen route. So what exactly are these AMD Ryzen CPUs & NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs and what is so special about them? I am sure this is what you all must be wondering like I know the people who are familiar with these terms are well acquainted with the meaning too but not everyone has in-depth knowledge about this hardware so let me give you a briefing about this new feature which ASUS is planning on incorporating in their brand new segment of ProArt Creator series laptops so that becomes easier of you, my dear readers, to consider all our options before buying a laptop.
The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU rocks 8 cores, 16 threads, 20 MB of cache, and clocks of up to 4.60 GHz. It comes with a configurable TDP range between 35-45W(+) and the ‘HX’ parts are known to support overclocking although there is no official information if the ProArt StudioBook laptops will allow any clock adjustment as of yet. The GPU side is powered by NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 Mobility which offers a 5120 core chip with 8 GB GDDR6 memory. Interestingly, the ASUS ProArt StudioBook H5600QR is listed as a 16″ variant which makes it the first ProArt laptop of its kind, now that is a huge leap plus something new which the company is taking on with its new product. The screen is a 16″ OLED WQUXGA panel with a 2400p (3840×2400) resolution with HDR support along with an aspect ratio of 16:10 which is designed to suit content creators. Other specifications include up to 32 GB of DDR4 SODIMM support, and an impressive 2 TB NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD storage capacity. In addition to that, you should also expect a top-of-the-line and fully back-lit keyboard plus the laptop comes with a 90Wh battery and weighs in at 2.05 kg. The ASUS ProArt StudioBook H5600QR should also rock an impressive array of IO ports such as Thunderbolt 3, multiple USB 3.2/3.1, HDMI 2.0 output, SD card reader, and Bluetooth v5 & WiFi capabilities.
I am sure now that you all have a fair idea about the specs of this brand new laptop and in short, their real intention to add that new feature is to increase its horsepower. So I hope the above information was of some use to you all and now for the most important piece of information the price of the laptop. Well, according to the reports the laptop is listed for around $3000 US though this is just preliminary pricing.
