The NVIDIA Studio laptop lineup is expanding with the new Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2, powered by GeForce RTX 4060, GeForce RTX 4050 or NVIDIA RTX 2000 Ada Generation Laptop GPUs, providing powerful performance and versatility for creators. Backed by the NVIDIA Studio platform, the Surface Laptop Studio 2, announced today, offers maximum stability with preinstalled Studio Drivers, plus exclusive tools to accelerate professional and creative workflows. NVIDIA today also launched DLSS 3.5, adding Ray Reconstruction to the suite of AI-powered DLSS technologies. The latest feature puts a powerful new AI neural network at the fingertips of creators on RTX PCs, producing higher-quality, lifelike ray-traced images in real time before generating a full render. Chaos Vantage is the first creative application to integrate Ray Reconstruction. For gamers, Ray Reconstruction is now available in Cyberpunk 2077 and is slated for the Phantom Liberty expansion on Sept. 26.
Blackmagic Design has adopted NVIDIA TensorRT acceleration in update 18.6 for its popular DaVinci Resolve software for video editing, color correction, visual effects, motion graphics and audio post-production. By integrating TensorRT, the software now runs AI tools like Magic Mask, Speed Warp and Super Scale over 50% faster than before. With this acceleration, AI runs up to 2.3x faster on GeForce RTX and NVIDIA RTX GPUs compared to Macs. The September Studio Driver is now available for download — providing support for the Surface Laptop Studio 2, new app releases and more.
This week’s In the NVIDIA Studio installment features Studio Spotlight artist Gavin O’Donnell, who created a Wild West-inspired piece using a workflow streamlined with AI and RTX acceleration in Blender and Unreal Engine running on a GeForce RTX 3090 GPU. The Surface Laptop Studio 2, when configured with NVIDIA laptop GPUs, delivers up to 2x the graphics performance compared to the previous generation, and is NVIDIA Studio validated. In addition to NVIDIA graphics, the Surface Laptop Studio 2 comes with 13th Gen Intel Core processors, up to 64GB of RAM and a 2TB SSD. It features a bright, vibrant 14.4-inch PixelSense Flow touchscreen, with true-to-life color and up to 120Hz refresh rate, and now comes with Dolby Vision IQ and HDR to deliver sharper colors. The system’s unique design adapts to fit any workflow. It instantly transitions from a pro-grade laptop to a perfectly angled display for entertainment to a portable creative canvas for drawing and sketching with the Surface Slim Pen 2.
NVIDIA Studio systems deliver upgraded performance thanks to dedicated ray tracing, AI and video encoding hardware. They also provide AI app acceleration, advanced rendering and Ray Reconstruction with NVIDIA DLSS, plus exclusive software like NVIDIA Omniverse, NVIDIA Broadcast, NVIDIA Canvas and RTX Video Super Resolution — helping creators go from concept to completion faster.
The Surface Laptop Studio 2 will be available beginning October 3.
