Razer and Lambda launch the TensorBook, a laptop computer for machine studying

Razer has teamed up with Lambda – a deep learning-focused firm – to launch the brand new Lambda TensorBook, a laptop computer designed for deep studying builders. The brand new laptop computer combines {hardware} from Razer with Lambda’s deep studying software program, and it boasts some spectacular figures on the subject of machine studying efficiency.

On the {hardware} aspect, the Razer x Lambda TensorBook appears to be primarily based on the Razer Blade 15. The chassis is almost similar, however Razer’s signature black chassis and inexperienced emblem make means for a silver look with some purple accents. The similarities proceed on the subject of specs, and this mannequin appears to be a specced-out variant of the 2021 Razer Blade 15, not the 2022 model. Which means it’s powered by an Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, however it does have an improved GPU – you get the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q with 16GB of GDDR6 reminiscence, whereas the Razer Blade 15 had the 8GB variant. It additionally comes with 64GB of RAM (in two SODIMM slots) and a 1TB SSD.

The show isn’t the top-tier configuration, however you’re nonetheless getting a 15.6-inch panel with Quad HD (2560 x 1440) decision and a 165Hz refresh fee, so that is removed from a nasty expertise. The laptop computer additionally comes with all of the ports from the Razer Blade 15 – two Thunderbolt 4 ports, three USB Sort-A ports, HDMI 2.1, a full-size SD card reader and a combo audio jack.

As for software program, the Razer x Lambda TensorBook comes with Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS pre-installed, together with the Lambda Stack deep studying suite and instruments together with PyTorch, Tensorflow, CUDA, and cuDNN all put in out of the field, so you must have all of the instruments you want for machine studying workloads. Should you favor Home windows, you may get the laptop computer in a dual-boot configuration with each working methods and the identical suite of ML instruments on each.

Between the {hardware} and software program, Lambda claims the TensorBook presents as much as 4 occasions the machine studying efficiency of the Apple M1 Max with a 32-core GPU, and it’s particularly quick for vision-related ML duties.

Razer x Lambda TensorBook ML performance

The Razer x Lambda TensorBook is obtainable right now and it begins at $3,499, however that already consists of all of the {hardware} and software program specs talked about above. The upgrades solely embrace Home windows dual-boot help and premium help from Lambda. You possibly can check it out on Lambda’s website.
