TUXEDO launch their smallest Linux gaming notebook with the Book XP14

By - | Views: 27,470

With a rather unassuming and plain case that doesn't give much away, the new TUXEDO Book XP14 is their smallest and lightest gaming notebook now available.

Coming with Intel Tiger Lake processors with either the Core i5-1135G7 or the Core i7-1165G7 it's backed up by their new Xe graphics, you can also upgrade it to have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 if you want that extra bit of power for your gaming needs.

Not only does it have ample power, it also has a speedy 14" 120Hz screen along with a matte finish to help keep away as much glare as possible to be usable in various lighting conditions.

The included 49 Wh will give around 6 hours of usage according to what TUXEDO state, although that will obviously go down based on what you're doing with it. There's plenty more to appreciate with it, check out some specs:

Processor Intel Core i5-1135G7 (max. 4.2 GHz Quad-Core, 4 Cores / 8 Threads, 8 MB Cache, 28 W TDP)
or upgrade to
Intel Core i7-1165G7 (max. 4.7 GHz Quad-Core, 4 Cores / 8 Threads, 12 MB Cache, 28 W TDP)
GPU Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 | 96 Execution Units | Clockrates: 400 - 1300 (Boost) MHz
or upgrade to
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 4 GB GDDR6 VRAM | TGP: 50 watts
RAM DDR4 3200 MHz SoDIMM | Dual Channel | 2 sockets | max. 64 GB
Base configuration: 8 GB (1x 8GB) 2666MHz CL19 Samsung
Storage NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD
Base configuration: 250 GB Kingston (NVMe PCIe), up to 2TB total
Available Ports 1x Thunderbolt 4/USB-C 4.0 Gen3x2 (DisplayPort 1.4a, Power Delivery DC In*)
1x USB-C 3.2 Gen2 (DisplayPort: no, Power Delivery: no)
2x USB-A 3.2 Gen1
1x HDMI 2.0b (with HDCP)
1x 2-in-1 audio (headphone + mic)
1x RJ45 Port (LAN)
1x SD card reader
1x DC-In/power connection
6-in-1 Card reader (MMC / RSMMC / SD / mini SD / SDHC / SDXC)

As usual for this company it comes as standard with TUXEDO_OS, which is based on the latest Ubuntu release with the Budgie desktop as the default. They do also offer it with a standard Ubuntu install.

Quite an affordable notebook too starting at €865.50. For the specifications, the compact size and having full Linux support out of the box from a known company it seems like an ideal machine. TUXEDO stated in their email that shipping is expected to begin at the end of December 2020.

If you don't stand more than 1meter from your screen, I even think 1900*1200 @24" inch is the best choice for quality, value for money and very long term run.
Because 16/10 will never disappear. 99% take 16/10 into account, where it is not the case for 16/9 because anything released before 2007 has either 4:3 or 16:10 ratio, so I think there are less games overall adapted to 16/9 than 16/10.

If you pick 1440p you need high end graphic card to make everything run smooth, and it oblige you to change more often and spend way lot more than for 1080p ibn the graphic card. 1200p is the good compromise, because you get a tiny bit more graphic quality and don't loose too much fps. And everything run smooth for years.

My cpu is from 2011 (9years old), my graphic card 2015 (5years old), and I can still play most modern game with good graphic quality using the right setups. (don't put shadows on high for instance, disable few unnecessary effect that use a lot of bandwidth and don't make the game look better)

In fact with a vega 56, I think I could continue to play all game in high/medium for the next 7years. This card keeps getting better an better with the opensource driver. It is sometime very close from the RTX2080 whiwh was released two years later and was costing twice the price of the vega, and especially because with such easy downvolting and overclocking you can achieve very very easily a 20/25% peformance boost.

Sorry for going off topic, but reading something so wrong on 16/10 could not be accepted for me. I spend 6years everyday studiying the best screens and every technological aspect of all the different panel/size, reactivity, input lag, panel uniformity... And really it's a good if not the best ratio.
