Will the Emergence of a Deep Learning Laptop Replace Macbooks?
Razer x Lambda Tensorbook comes with an impressive powerful Ubuntu Linux laptop for deep learning.
Deep learning is a machine learning technique that teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans. Lambda is a compute service that lets you build applications that respond quickly to new information and events, and Razer is known for its state-of-the-art gaming products. The two have come together to launch a unique laptop named Lambda TensorBook. Lambda, a provider of deep learning infrastructures, has teamed up with Razer, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers to build a Linux-powered laptop for deep learning.
Razer x Lambda Tensorbook
Razer x Lambda Tensorbook comes with an impressive, the world’s most powerful Ubuntu Linux laptop designed for deep learning. This new TensorBook is able to offer up to four times the machine learning performance of the Apple M1 Max with a 32-core GPU. Powered by an Intel i7-11800 Octo-Core processor featuring up to 4.6GHz clock speeds and with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card of 16GB VRAM, the Tensorbook laptop provides ML engineers an all-in-one deep learning solution for all their needs.
This Tensorbook laptop is equipped with the Lambda GPU Cloud service and the full Lambda Stack deep learning suit, which includes software like NVIDIA and tools for machine learning including CUDA, cuDNN, PyTorch, TensorFlow, Keras, Caffe. And this performance is backed by a pre-installed Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS or a dual-boot configuration with both Windows and Ubuntu. These features are proof enough to acknowledge that this deep learning laptop and its further advancements might soon topple Macbooks from being the most efficient laptops in the world.
Design-wise, the Linux laptop looks sleek with its slim 2.1 kg aluminum unibody chassis. The display comprises a 15.6-inch panel with Quad HD resolution and a 165Hz refresh rate. Connectivity is taken care of with two Thunderbolt 4 ports, three USB Type-A ports, HDMI 2.1, a full-size SD card reader, and a combo audio jack. The Razer x Lambda TensorBook is already up for sale at a starting price of US$3,499 USD. An updated version will offer the dual-OS configuration with Windows and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
