German Linux computer manufacturer TUXEDO Computers launched today two Linux gaming laptops powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 graphics card series.

If you’re in the market for a new Linux gaming notebook featuring NVIDIA’s recently released GeForce RTX 3000 series GPUs, codenamed Ampere, in Max-Q design with up to 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM, TUXEDO Computers has you covered with its brand-new TUXEDO Book XP15 and TUXEDO Book XP17 laptops.

The NVIDIA RTX 3000 series graphics card is known to offer high-performance gaming on mobile computers, and combined with a 10th Generation Intel i7-10870H high-end processor with 8 cores and 16 threads, and up to 5 GHz clock rates, the two notebooks TUXEDO Computers introduces today are some of its most powerful.

Avid Linux gamers will have the choice of buying the TUXEDO Book XP15 and TUXEDO Book XP17 notebooks with either the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (only available on the XP15 model), NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, or the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs, depending on their budget and needs.

“NVIDIA’s Max-Q design stands for the best possible performance-per-watt and thus offers the best of both worlds: High graphics performance with relatively low heat development!”, says TUXEDO Computers.

What’s more exciting is that both laptops offer you several display choices. More specifically, you’ll be able to buy the TUXEDO Book XP15 model with a 15.6-inch Full HD (1920×1080) matte finish IPS screen with or without G-SYNC and 144 Hz or 300 Hz, as well as a glossy 4K (3840×2160) 60 Hz OLED screen.
