The Adder, Serval, and Bonobo workstations get quite the hefty CPU/GPU upgrade.
It ‘is our most budget-friendly laptop which features a discrete GPU.’
The Pangolin laptop by System76 gets a workout in for the new year, sporting a Ryzen 6800U processor, DDR5 memory, higher refresh rate, larger battery, and other upgrades.
System76’s Pop!_OS distribution now enables ZRAM. This is thanks to Pop!_OS developer Michael Murphy. Per the Tweet from the official Pop!_OS account, this will increase “the amount of free memory your system has available.” Supposedly this adds “increased FPS in games, or faster simulations and compiler runs,” especially on systems with a low amount of RAM. Someone on the pull request commented that on a PC with 8 GB RAM, the result of ZRAM enablement was “a solid boost from sometimes 80 FPS to 120 FPS (my refresh rate) and other times from 80 FPS to 90 FPS.
If you’re looking for a keyboard, System76 has every option out there. Whether you want the standard Launch, the Launch Lite for a more affordable keyboard without the USB hub, or want to have as many features as possible with the new Launch Heavy, your bases have been covered. Apparently the Launch Heavy has been around for the past few weeks, even though the embargo lift date wasn’t until today. At any rate, here’s the features it has over the standard launch:
The Thelio by System76 is an impressive-looking desktop. It comes in a black finish, mostly rectangular in shape, and is very mimimalistic in design. A few months ago, the Thelio went through a redesign. Instead of the accent going around part of the front and the entire right side, it is now just a small sliver at the front. It’s also user-replaceable; users can take it out and replace with a different design if they so choose.
Back in September, System76 unveiled their newly-designed Thelio desktops, with swappable front accents. There were a few designs to choose from, but now it’s possible to create your own. The idea was inspired by GloriousEggroll’s customized Thelio design. Today, System76 introduces the Thelio Maker Accent, a DIY accent for users to add their own personal spin to their PC. A blank aluminum slate, users are free to paint, etch, gloss, or adhere objects to.
The Thelio Major by System76 is their “most powerful gaming system, placing some of the largest GPUs on the market in a machine engineered for quiet, effective cooling.” Today, the case gets a redesign. First, the I/O shield on the back is now removable. This allows the user to replace the motherboard with a different one if they so desire. Though this is for the Major, “other Thelio models” should get this feature as well in the future.
