German Linux computer manufacturer TUXEDO Computers unveiled today the TUXEDO Pulse 14 laptop as an ultra-light and powerful Linux computer featuring AMD Ryzen 7 4800H.

If you are in the market for an ultra-light Linux laptop, TUXEDO Pulse 14 is here as an AMD-only portable computer powered by AMD Ryzen 4000 family of processors, as well as featuring a 16.8 mm thin design and weighting only 1.1 kg.

According to TUXEDO Computers, the TUXEDO Pulse 14 laptop is the lightest Linux powerhouse in the world. It’s the little brother of the TUXEDO Pulse 15 ultrabook announced last month and ships with AMD’s latest high-end mobile processors.

Under the thin magnesium chassis, the ultra-light Linux laptop can be powered by up to 64GB RAM and either the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor with 8 cores and 16 threads or the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor with 6 cores and 12 threads.

While the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H variant ships with the powerful AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 graphics card, the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H model incorporates an AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 GPU.

“TUXEDO Pulse 14 is an ultra-light and super compact Linux companion for users looking for workstation performance “on the go,” said TUXEDO Computers.
