TUXEDO Sirius 16 launches full AMD gaming notebook with Linux

By - | Views: 34,281

Ready for your next hardware purchase? How about a new Linux notebook that's all-in with AMD? The TUXEDO Sirius 16 looks delicious.

"Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky and a binary star system. With the new Sirius 16 - Gen1, TUXEDO is breaking new ground and launching the first and long-awaited full AMD Linux gaming notebook named after the celestial body, especially since the TUXEDO Sirius 16 is also powered by a particularly exciting binary star, consisting of the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS and the AMD Radeon RX 7600M XT." — TUXEDO Computers

What you get here is quite the powerhouse with a 16.1 inch 2560x1440 display, with a 165Hz refresh rate. Backed up by the 8 cores and 16 threads from the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS, a large 80 Wh battery, 2x 8 GB DDR5-5600 RAM and 1x 500 GB Samsung 980 SSD.

As you might be able to tell from the image above it has a colour-adjustable light bar on the front edge as well as a per-key RGB-backlit keyboard for those of you who like things a little less plain.

Plenty of room for upgrades during configuration or after purchase with the ability to up it to 96GB RAM, and they say it has two easily accessible M.2 slots when you remove the base tray, which is covered by their warranty, so you can configure it up to 2 x 4TB SSDs with a fast PCIe 4.0 connection.

As for connectivity you get 2 x USB-C (1x USB 4.0 Gen3x2, 1x USB 3.2 Gen2 (40 Gbps each)), 2 x USB-A 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps each), HDMI 2.1 and RJ45 LAN (1 Gbps). It also has a webcam shutter and a fingerprint sensor (although that only apparently works on Windows).

You can choose to have it with their own Tuxedo OS (based on Ubuntu) or with Ubuntu 22.04, Kubuntu 22.04 or Ubuntu Budgie 22.04. Pricing starts at 1,699 EUR for the base model. They said the expect the first deliveries around mid-December 2023.

That pricing sounds pretty good. I've never heard of their flavor of ubuntu, I wonder if it's just pretty vanilla with some branding.

The screen is definitely quite drool-worthy, though I wish it would've had a few more nits. Not that I expect to replace my current laptop for a while, sitting with the TUXEDO Aura 15 Gen2.

Great! Something else where the indicators never seem to work!

Quotea fingerprint sensor (although that only apparently works on Windows)

Selling a dedicated Linux laptop with customized Ubuntu distro and having a non-working peripheral? That's pretty lame, because there are plenty of fingerprint readers that work. On both my Lenovos they worked OOTB and even on my old HP EliteBook you could get it to work with some tinkering (and we are talking about 16.04 Ubuntu).

What's the point of buying this over the Framework Laptop 16? The Framework Laptop 16 is much more modular, it has 2 USB4 ports, it has a Linux fprintd compatible sensor, it has a 16:10 screen unlike pretty much every other Linux laptop, and it has ANSI keyboard options unlike pretty much every good Tuxedo Laptop.

Honestly, this device seems like a bit of a miss to me... It's good to have options, but I can't see myself getting this when I'm still waiting for a Framework Laptop 16 to ship...

That numpad looks ugly and unnecessary. They should have gone to ROG Strix G15/16 route.

Looks like one of those white label Clevvo or whatever laptops that I believe System76 also uses for a lot of their designs. Maybe I’m wrong. Does Tuxedo design their own chassis and mainboard?

Are fingerprint readers useful anyway? I'm pretty sure someone getting a hold of your laptop can easily find your finger prints all over the device, so can't they simply copy it and unlock the device.

It looks sleek, I like the red lights on the keyboard.
