After NVIDIA revealed its Quadro RTX 5000 designed for laptops, a number of manufacturers announced machines that'll pack the new gear. Acer, ASUS, MSI, HP and Razer have all launched machines that offer the most powerful in professional mobile-graphics hardware. Here's a brief run-down of what's going to be available in the near future, and how much you can expect to pay for it. Now, these aren't all the RTX Studio laptops, which NVIDIA is using as branding for all devices that it will supply special drivers for. These are just the models packing, specifically, the new Quadro RTX 5000 GPU.

Acer

Acer ConceptD 7

The 15.6-inch Acer ConceptD 7, built to coax designer types away from the MacBook Pro, will pack the Quadro RTX 5000. NVIDIA also says the ConceptD 9, with its fancy tilting display, will also get the new silicon; although, Acer itself hasn't confirmed that yet. Since the machines were only announced in April, Acer hasn't felt the need to make any changes to the spec list. On the ConceptD 7, that means you'll get the same ninth-generation Core i7, 32GB RAM, 1TB HDD and the 15.6-inch, Pantone-validated 4K display.

Price and Availability: To be announced

ASUS

ASUS StudioBook

ASUS is launching the StudioBook 700G3T and the W500, both offering a Quadro RTX 5000 GPU option. We have specs for the W500, which include a ninth-generation Core i7-9750H, 32GB RAM and 1TB storage. That's about all we know, for now, apart from the fact that the W500 measures in at 18.9 x 360 x 252mm and weighs 4.4 pounds.

Price and Availability: To be announced

HP

HP

HP's Zbook 15 G6 and Zbook 17 G6 will both get the new Quadro, as well as the choice of a ninth-generation Intel Core or Xeon CPU. For these enterprise-centric machines, the standout feature is the ability to swap out the memory and storage without the need for tools. And the larger of the pair offers "un-throttled performance" in simulation and GPU rendering, as well as a 100 percent DPI-P3 color gamut display.

Price and Availability: At some point in July, at an as-yet-unspecified price.

MSI

MSI

MSI will include the RTX 5000 inside its line of workstation laptops, including its line-leading WS65, which is powered by a ninth-generation Core i9. The new models get a slimmer design and 4K display as well as the promise that the hardware will meet Military Standard 810G for durability.

Price and Availability: Early next month, and already available to pre-order, for $3,500.

Razer

Razer

Razer has upgraded both its Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17 with the Quadro RTX 5000 and used the opportunity to make some other tweaks. That includes a new Mercury White finish to the bodies and more powerful CPU options. At first blush, both models resemble an old-school PowerBook G4, especially with the lighter shade on its bodies, and frankly, we're here for it.

Price and Availability: To be announced
