Tuxedo Computers, a PC maker that specializes on Linux systems, has launched its new high-performance notebook that weds ultimate performance, a long battery life, and a low weight.
The Tuxedo Pulse 15 packs AMD’s Ryzen 4000-series processors with six or eight cores and promises to work for up to 20 hours on one charge, a very good result for a Linux machine. And yes, there is an option to install Windows too.
As the name suggests, the Tuxedo Pulse 15 is equipped with a 15.6-inch panel that boasts with a Full-HD resolution as well as up to 321 nits luminance. The LCD can reproduce 100% of the sRGB color space, and features viewing angles one comes to expect from an IPS-type panel. The laptop comes in a chassis made of magnesium alloy that is robust, lightweight, and stylish-looking – and is only 16.8 mm thick and weighing about 1.5 kilograms.
The Pulse is ryzing
Inside the Tuxedo Pulse 15 sits AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 7 4800H or six-core Ryzen 5 4600H processor with Radeon Vega RX Vega 7 or RX Vega 6 integrated graphics.
The APU is accompanied by up to 64 GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory as well as an M.2 SSD of up to 2 TB capacity and a PCIe or SATA interface. Connectivity department of the laptop comprises of Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, a GbE port, USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C connectors, an HDMI output, a 9-in1 card reader, and a 3.5-mm audio jack for headsets.
Being equipped with a 91-Wh battery, the Tuxedo Pulse 15 can work for up to 20 hours at minimal display brightness without Wi-Fi on one charge. In a more realistic scenario with medium brightness and Wi-Fi activated, the laptop can run for 11 hours on one charge, the company says.
The Tuxedo Pulse 15 is now available for pre-order directly from the company. An entry-level configuration (with a six-core CPU and without Windows) is priced at €896.81 w/ VAT, but without shipping costs. Beefier configs with Windows will cost more. Tuxedo can ship its products internationally and promises to start dispatching the Pulse 15 orders from August 17.
