System76 Pangolin Linux laptop is powered by AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors
Back in June, System76 launched its first-ever laptop powered by AMD processors. Called "Serval WS," that computer was a beastly portable workstation with desktop-class CPUs -- not AMD's highly praised Ryzen 4000 mobile processors which offer performance and impressive battery life.
But now, System76 is teasing exactly that. Called "Pangolin," this upcoming laptop from the company will have two Ryzen 4000 mobile processor options -- the Ryzen 5 4500U and AMD Ryzen 7 4700U. In other words, this should be the Linux laptop for which AMD fans (that are also road warriors) have been clamoring.
System76 shares the following statement about the upcoming computer.
Are you seeing red? We're rolling out the red carpet for the Pangolin, which is sporting components from team red. AMD Ryzen CPUs team up with AMD Radeon integrated graphics to bring you the full team red experience inside a light, fast everyday laptop. No bull.
Unfortunately, the company has not yet shared pricing or availability for the Ryzen 4000-powered Pangolin, but it does invite interested consumers to sign up for notifications here.
