System76 Launches Ryzen-Powered Laptop

Jun 18, 2020

The new System76 Serval WS includes a powerful AMD Ryzen CPU.

System76 is never one to rest on their reputation or become complacent in an incredibly competitive field. This has never been more apparent with their constant push to bring more and more powerful systems to consumers. Case in point, the new Serval WS laptop. This Linux workhorse includes a powerful AMD Ryzen CPU, along with all the other bells and whistles you’d expect in a flagship laptop.

But the highlight of the Serval WS has to be the processor. System76 offers three different configurations for this laptop:

  • Ryzen 3600
  • Ryzen 3700
  • Ryzen 3900

Of those three options, it will be the Ryzen 3900 that will garner the most attention, as it’s a CPU that includes 12 cores and 24 threads.

Consumers can also choose between a GTX 1660 Ti or RTX 2070 GPU, for graphics intensive workloads. Other features of the Serval WS include an RGB keyboard, 1080p webcam, and plenty of ports for connectivity. The laptop can be purchased with either a 15" 1080p or 17" 4K display. The Serval WS supports up to 4TB of NVMe SSD storage and up to 64GB of memory.

The base model starts at $1,299.00 and can be configured to a whopping $5,000.00. Like all System76 machines, the Serval WS comes preloaded with their in-house Linux distribution, Pop!_OS.
