On the other hand, the new Oryx Pro model boasts a 16-inch Full HD (1920×1200) matte display with a 16:10 screen ratio and 165Hz refresh rate, which is supported by NVIDIA’s latest RTX 40 Series graphics cards including the RTX 4050, 4060, and 4070.

Oryx Pro is now powered by the 13th Gen Intel Core “Raptor Lake” i9-13900H processor with 14 cores, 24 MB cache, up to 5.4 GHz clock speed, and Intel Iris Xe graphics, as well as up to 64 GB dual-channel 4800 MHz DDR5 RAM and up to 8TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD storage.
