Linux hardware vendor System76 informs 9to5Linux today about the upcoming availability of a new version of their acclaimed Pangolin Linux laptop powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 processor and DDR5 RAM.
Due to popular requests, System76 has been hard at work on a refreshed Pangolin laptop that will feature the new AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with AMD Radeon 680M graphics, a 144Hz 15.6-inch FHD display, up to 32 GB DDR5 6400 MHz RAM, and up to 16TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD storage.
System76 promises a “buttery smooth experience” even when playing games (including those that demand higher framerate), watching movies, listening to music, or working on your favorite projects.
The upcoming AMD-powered Pangolin Linux laptop also comes with a bigger 70 Wh battery promising up to 10 hours of battery life. Additionally, the laptop will feature a new magnesium alloy chassis, a multitouch clickpad, and a single-color backlit US QWERTY keyboard.
