System76 released today the all-new AMD-only Pangolin Linux-powered laptop that ships with refreshed components, including the display, processor, memory, and storage.
System76 has been working on a refreshed Pangolin laptop over the past few months and the new model doesn’t disappoint. It features the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with up to 4.7 GHz clock speeds, 8 cores, 16 threads, and AMD Radeon 680M integrated graphics.
The all-new Pangolin laptop features a 15.6-inch 144Hz Full HD (1920×1080) display with a matte finish, a sleek magnesium alloy chassis, and promises up to 10 hours of battery life with its 70 Wh Li-Ion battery. It also features a single-color backlit US QWERTY Keyboard and a multitouch clickpad.
Under the hood, the Linux-powered laptop boasts 32 GB LPDDR5 6400 MHz of RAM and it can be equipped with up to 16TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD storage. Another cool feature is the hardware camera kill switch for extra privacy.
Connectivity-wise, the laptop ships with Wi-Fi 6E wireless, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.2, HDMI 2.0, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port with DisplayPort, three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo jack, and an SD card reader.
