TUXEDO announce the InfinityBook S 15 with Intel Xe

By - | Views: 15,878

If System76 aren't your preferred Linux hardware vendor we also have TUXEDO who just recently announced the TUXEDO InfinityBook S 15 powered by the latest Intel hardware.

This new system actually sounds very familiar, and if you're feeling a bit of déjà vu you would be absolutely right - you've pretty much seen this before with the System76 Darter Pro. In fact, they're mostly the same. The main advantage is probably shipping, since System76 are based in the USA with TUXEDO in Germany and also support times / returns depending on where you are.

With a base configuration of the TUXEDO InfinityBook S 15 coming with a Full HD IPS display, Intel Core i5-1135G7 with Intel Iris Xe Graphics, 8 GB 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM, and a 250 GB Samsung 860 EVO. Their starting price is €937 EUR, compared with the $1,099 USD from System76.

With TUXEDO, you also get access to their fancy custom-built TUXEDO Control Center which allows you to get a full slick dashboard of your computer specifications. From here you can adjust performance profiles, fan tables and more depending on the model you buy from them. You also get their sweet looking backlit TUX super-key to replace the Windows logo you usually see from other vendors.

Here's some of the options you can get with it:

Screen Full-HD (1920 x 1080) IPS non-glare | 100% sRGB
RAM 8 GB (1x 8GB) 3200Mhz CL22 Samsung
up to
64 GB (2x 32GB) 3200MHz CL22 Samsung ( +260,00 EUR)
Processor + GPU

Intel Core i5-1135G7 (28W TDP) + Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (80EUs)
or
Intel Core i7-1165G7 (28W TDP) + Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs ( +120,00 EUR)

Storage 250 GB Samsung 860 EVO (M.2 SATAIII)
up to
2x 2000 GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus (NVMe PCIe) (+312,00 EUR for each)

Operating system options are: TUXEDO_OS 20.04 LTS 64Bit (based on Ubuntu), Ubuntu 20.04 LTS 64bit or openSUSE 15.2 which you can pick between desktop environments for across KDE, Gnome and Xfce.

They said that the first deliveries will start at the end of February 2021 with pre-orders are available now. If you're interested you can take a full look at the TUXEDO InfinityBook S 15 here.

I just really hope they could work together. Get the firmware etc. I see Tuxedo are trying to hire a coreboot engineer too. But why redevelop the same thing again.
Tuxedo is the goto for Europe as it is, and I guess from North America you are bound to system76. So no real concurrence, might as well cast your lot together I'd say. Better for consumer too :)

Also, it seems Tuxedo/System76 are dancing around my dream laptop but never get there >< I would have like it so much with the casing of the pulse 15 ... Lighter and I prefer the feel of the magnesium for some reason, some kind of fetish I guess.

First world problem, I know - but for a 15-inch I definitely would want a WQHD screen. I have one on my 14-inch Lenovo, and won't to go back to FHD

Tuxedo, please, stop releasing equipment with soldered 8GB RAM chips...

I'm wondering how these new Xe laptops perform with gaming. I've seen a review of ~30 fps for recent AAA games at 'medium' 1080p settings. I guess we'll find out more soon.

I don't think this one is soldered ? I agree though that it is time to let go of the 8GB default.

I gotten a new laptop for a friend at https://laptopwithlinux.com/, was pleasantly surprised with the flexible configuration. Delivery was 2 days later, they are located in the Netherlands. In the end its a clevo laptop but have to say it feels pretty stable and fast, just putting the final touches on it before I hand it over.
