Tuxedo Computers Joins the Ryzen Bandwagon

May 21, 2020

Tuxedo Computers has released the Tuxedo Boot BA15 with an AMD Ryzen 3500 CPU.

Not one to rest on reputation, Tuxedo Computers has upped the ante for their Linux pre-installed options. This time around, the Linux-only computer manufacturer has released the first-ever Ryzen-powered Linux laptop. The Tuxedo Book BA15 has one option for CPU—the AMD Ryzen 5 3500. As for GPU, the BA15 ships with the AMD Radeon Vega 8.

This could be considered significant, given only days ago Linus Torvalds (the creator of Linux) announced he’d moved his main machine away from an Intel CPU to an AMD Ryzen. Torvalds claims the AMD Threadripper 3970x has his test builds of the kernel running three times faster than they were with the Intel chip.

Make no mistake, the Ryzen 5 3500 is no Threadripper. Instead of the massive 32 cores found in the 3970x, the 3500 has a meager 6 cores. However, the 3500 is no slouch and should be a perfect match for Linux on a mobile device. Add into the mix a massive 91Wh battery and you could get up to 13 hours of office work (including web, email, and word processing), with 10 hours of full HD 1080p video streaming at 50% display brightness.

The Tuxedo Book also features a 15" display, full-sized backlit keyboard, Bluetooth 5.1, wireless ac/a/b/g/n/ax compatibility, 1 USB C port, 2 3.2 Gen1 USB A port, 1 USB 2.0 A port, 1 Gigabit LAN RJ45 port, a 9-in-1 card reader, and up to 32GB of RAM. The base price of the BA15 is 859 EUR ($936.00 USD). Purchase your BA15 here
