“The era of AI is here, but what’s coming next? To further push performance to its limits, System76 is currently working on updating its laptop series with 14th Gen Intel CPUs. This upgrade has already brought increased clock speeds to the Bonobo WS graphics powerhouse and premium Serval WS laptops,” System76 stated.

The latest Adder WS laptop introduces not only the brand new HX-Class 14th Gen Intel processor, but also offers superior storage up to 12TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD across three drives. Furthermore, there is an option to customize the laptop configuration up to an impressive 96GB DDR5 RAM.

The newly launched Adder WS laptop also showcases a 15.6-inch FullHD (1920×1080) matte finish screen that comes with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 144 Hz refresh rate. The laptop also features a multitouch touchpad, a multi-colored backlit chiclet US QWERTY keyboard, a 1.0MP HD camera, a 4-cell Lithium-Ion battery pack 53.35Wh, and a Kensington Lock for added security.

The laptop powered by Linux comes standard with disabled Intel ME (Management Engine). This system includes Coreboot, EDK2, and System76 Firmware Apps, according to System76’s open firmware.
