Thelio Major, System76's high-end Linux desktop is going through a big upgrade that's due out on November 28th.
Thelio Major is System76's most powerful gaming system, placing some of the largest GPUs on the market in a machine engineered for quiet, effective cooling. This custom cooling system uses a phase-change cooling method to move heat away from the components, and large fans to quickly and quietly exhaust hot air. The goal: To ensure these powerful components run as close to their top performance as possible.System76
One of the major design changes, is that it will finally have a removable I/O shield like most other cases. While the case is design specifically by System76 for their systems, it's nice to see this now an option so you can easily change the motherboard for future upgrades. In a press note, they said the change should roll out to other Thelio models in future too.
Some of the highlights of the new refreshed Thelio Major include:
- 13th Gen Intel Core i7 or i9.
- Up to 72TB of Storage.
- Wi-Fi 6E.
- Up to NVIDIA 3090 Ti graphics.
