Nvidia is known for its high performance graphics cards in video games. But this power can also be used to improve the performance of editing, graphics, or 3D creation applications. This is the whole principle of Nvidia Studio, we explain how it works.
Why are video games the only software that takes advantage of the extra power of graphics cards? For the general public, today it seems clear that the graphics card is made above all for gaming on a computer. This has actually not been the case for a few years now, thanks to the arrival of Nvidia Studio, which is aimed at creative professionals.
Graphics card to improve display time
Behind Nvidia Studio, conceals Nvidia’s desire to meet the efficiency and production time needs of creative professionals. The idea is simply to harness the power of Nvidia graphics cards with major creative applications to reduce or improve rendering time.
Many applications today take advantage of Nvidia Studio. They are over 150, all of them big names in editing (Premiere Pro, Da Vinci Resolve), photography (Lightroom), 3D creation (Blender, Autodesk Arnold) and even broadcasting (Obs Studio, Twitch Studio).
For each of these areas and applications, Nvidia has worked alongside publishers. This is the case for example with Adobe Premiere Pro. By activating the Nvidia Studio option in the application settings, the encoding time of a 10 minute 4K video can thus be reduced from 57 minutes… to less than 7 minutes.
Youtuber Atom has also come to the Frandroid group to tell us about how he has used Nvidia Studio in his various 3D creation projects.
For 3D creation professionals, Nvidia wants to go even further with its Omniverse platform. The concept is attractive: a collaborative platform built into the cloud that allows artists to create 3D digital universes more easily.
How to enjoy Nvidia Studio on your PC?
To take advantage of this additional power of the graphics card, the prerequisites are few. All you need is an Nvidia graphics card (from a GeForce RTX 2060) and make sure you have the Nvidia Studio drivers installed in GeForce Experience.
With Nvidia Studio, Nvidia does not just make a simple software solution, but a real ecosystem. In partnership with the biggest laptop manufacturers (Asus, MSI, and Razer, to name a few), they also offer a full line of PCs called Nvidia Studio.
Nvidia Studio laptops are designed for creative professionals or semi-pros. These are high-end PCs that systematically feature a well-calibrated colorimetric display, an Intel Core i7 (H-series) processor or more (or AMD equivalent), always with at least 16 GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce graphics card. RTX 3050 minimum (or Quadro RTX 3000).
This Nvidia Studio PC suite is available for all budgets. Over the next few days, Rue du Commerce is organizing a flurry of promotions on the best Nvidia Studio PCs of the moment. Pricing starts at around €1,300 and you can get the powerful Razer Blade 14 for less than €2,600.
