TUXEDO Sirius 16 launches full AMD gaming notebook with Linux

By - | Views: 34,724

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.

Quoting: cameronboschWhat'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...
Because of these problems and additional costs (for EU)?
This applies when you order somewhere to EU
Also, Framework just does NOT provide half of EU keyboard setups.
So I guess, those are some of the points.

There literally aren't any ANSI options from Tuxedo though. So if youre not in Europe, this laptop is DoA. Not to mention 16:9 needs to die on laptops; nearly every good Windows laptop has moved on from 16:9.

Also, your link isn't working.

Yeah, I fixed the link, should be working now. Thanks.

In other notes: Yes, that was *exactly* my point: When I'm from EU, it is actually the Framework option which does not make much sense: No EU keyboard layouts, additional purchase costs for being an extra-EU company.

So if you're an EU customer, Tuxedo makes perfect sense. And is a preferred manufacturer to e.g. Framework or System76.

Quoting: McCartheeSuch a Linux focused laptop and company having hardware in their product that doesn't even work on Linux is quite frankly pathetic.

Well it could just be cheaper to use a touchpad with a fingerprint reader integrated then have a custom one produced just to have a thing removed (touchpads are of the shelf parts too). And dual boot folks might use it on the Windows side.

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

No, they have a lot of (viewpoint notwithstanding) improvements over vanilla, mostly their preference for .debs rather than snap.
They have an FAQ page here with the details

Aside from the Framework being ~£500 more for similar config, but no native keyboard layout?
