Wacom has revealed a brand new update to their MobileStudio Pro line that fully updates the hardware of the 16 inch version and more!
Two years after it’s initial launch, the MobileStudio Pro 16 is getting a hefty upgrade. The new model was recently revealed and completely updates the internal hardware of the device, while still offering all the goodies creative professionals have come to expect from the brand.
Personally speaking, the MobileStudio Pro is primary Wacom tablet I use on a daily basis for projects (though mine is the slightly smaller 13 model). The built-in computer allows me to take it and work on things using my normal programs (Photoshop and Illustrator) no matter where I am.
While I still absolutely love it, any tech begins to show its age after a couple years. As such, I’m excited to see this new update that brings in some new hardware, as well as an included stand to the package:
The new Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 packs everything a creative professional needs into one powerful mobile device. Featuring the Wacom Pro Pen 2, it offers virtually lag-free pen performance with tilt response and 8,192 pen pressure levels for precision and control. And thanks to Wacom’s own battery-free, electro-magnetic resonance (EMR) technology, the well-balanced and ergonomically designed pens never need recharging, no matter how long a project takes.
The advanced pen experience continues when the tip meets the screen. The 15.6″ display offers a large active work area, wide enough for even the biggest projects. Optical bonding reduces parallax while the etched glass surface creates the natural feel of pen on paper. The 4k (3840 x 2160) display covers 85% of Adobe RGB color space (CIE 1931) and can be calibrated for consistency and reliability in color critical workflows. To meet a wide variety of artistic preferences, the Wacom MobileStudio Pro supports Wacom’s unique accessory pens. The Wacom Pro Pen Slim offers a thin, pencil-like form and the Wacom Pro Pen 3D speeds 3D workflows with the help of a third customizable switch. The previous generation of Classic Pen, Art Pen and Airbrush Pen are also available for use.
In addition to Wacom’s renowned pen performance, the MobileStudio Pro 16 comes with an Intel Core i7 Quad-core processor, allowing users to run demanding software applications at high framerates and better perform video editing and 3D rendering tasks thanks to the Core i7’s increased memory and data throughput. To further increase performance, the MobileStudio Pro employs NVIDIA’s Quadro graphics card, making it ideal for digital content creators and those working with computer-generated imagery.
Users will also appreciate the power, speed and versatility of the MobileStudio Pro’s Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Its 40Gbps speed make it up to 8x faster than USB 3.0 and it can run two 4K displays stress-free. Furthermore, Thunderbolt 3 connects to virtually any display and will work with a variety of protocols, including USB-C and DisplayPort.
The MobileStudio Pro 16 will arrive this month, coming in at $3,500, with the 13 model getting the upgrade treatment later this year.
