System76 Launches Darter Pro Linux Laptop with 16:10 Display and Intel Core Ultra CPUs

System76, a Linux hardware vendor, has today introduced the latest version of the Darter Pro Linux-powered ultrabook. This new generation features Intel Core Ultra processors with Intel Arc graphics, an improved display, and other enhancements.

Over 3 years have passed since System76 refreshed the Darter Pro, and now, the latest iteration of the Linux-powered laptop is fitted with Intel Core Ultra 5-125H or Intel Core Ultra 7-155H processors with inbuilt Intel Arc graphics, peaking at 4.8 GHz clock speed, up to 24MB cache, and a maximum of 16 cores and 22 threads.

“Intel Arc graphics make gaming an intriguing option on the Darter Pro. With speeds competitive to integrated AMD Radeon graphics, Intel Arc uplifts morale when needed, running games like Stardew Valley, Hades, and Minecraft in 16:10 smoothly,” System76 spoke out.

The upgraded Darter Pro laptop also provides up to 96GB dual-channel DDR5 5600 MHz RAM, up to 8TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD storage, a multitouch clickpad, a backlit chiclet US QWERTY configurable keyboard with 83 keys on the 14″ model and 102 keys on the 16″ model, stereo speakers, a 1.0MP 720p HD webcam, a 90 Watts charger, and a 73 Wh Li-Ion battery promising a battery life of up to 9 hours.

Best of all, you can buy the new Darter Pro for the first time with a 16:10 display. The new model has 14-inch or 16-inch matte displays featuring a Full HD+ (1920×1200) resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, and wide view angle.

Connectivity-wise, the new Darter Pro Linux laptop features a Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5, a Thunderbolt 4 (Type-C) port, another Thunderbolt 4 (Type-C) port with DisplayPort, an HDMI port, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo audio jack.

The Darter Pro is available for purchase right now from System76’s online store with the same aluminum body and silver color from $1,199.00 USD for the base model featuring the 14-inch display, Intel Core Ultra 5-125H CPU, 16GB DDR5 4800 MHz RAM, and 500GB M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSD.

The Darter Pro is set up with System76’s Pop!_OS Linux distribution by default. If desired, you can opt for it to include Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) instead. Like all of System76’s laptops, it comes with the System76 Open Firmware (Coreboot, EDK2, System76 Firmware Apps) and System76 Open Source Embedded Controller Firmware.
