System76 Beefs Up Popular Pangolin Laptop

Jan 18, 2023

The darling of open-source-powered laptops and desktops will soon drop a new AMD Ryzen 7-powered version of their popular Pangolin laptop.

System76 recently announced they would soon give their fan-favorite Pangolin laptop a boost with the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U CPU 2.7 up to 4.7 GHz with 8 cores and 16 threads, which includes an AMD Radeon 680M GPU. With the Ryzen 7, users get increased CPU clock speeds, doubled read/write speeds, and faster bandwidth at the tune of 40% faster.

The Pangolin chassis is built with magnesium and offers 150 degrees of flexibility for the screen. The display has a 1920x1080 FDH matte with a 144Hz refresh rate.

Tucked inside the chassis is a battery with 10% more life than previous iterations, so you can expect to get roughly 10 hours of productivity from the new configuration.

Other specs include 32 GB LPDDR5 RAM @ 6400 MHz, 2 x M.2 SSD (PCIe NVMe) with up to 16TG total in storage, 3 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, 1 USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C port, an SD card reader, single color backlit keyboard, gigabit ethernet, WiFI 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, Video ports (including HDMI 2.0, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C w/displayport), full-range speakers and 1 headphone/mic combo jack, a single 1.0 MP 720p HD webcam, and a 70 Wh Li-Ion battery.

As of now, there is no set release date, but the price for the base model will start at $1,299.00. Sign up for updates on the new Pangolin on the System76 teaser page.
