System76’s Oryx Pro Linux Laptop Upgraded with 14th Gen Intel HX-Class CPU and Expanded RAM

System76, a vendor of Linux hardware, has released an update for their Linux-based laptop, the Oryx Pro. This update includes a 14th Gen Intel HX-Class processor and an increase in memory compared to older versions.

The last update to the Oryx Pro laptop was over nine months ago. Its latest version, available from April 2nd, 2024, comes with a 14th Gen Intel i9-14900HX processor. This processor has a 5.8 GHz clock speed, 36MB cache, 24 total cores, and is equipped with Intel Iris Xe Graphics.

Along with a new processor, the updated Oryx Pro features an upgrade in memory. Previously, the maximum memory was 64 GB dual-channel DDR5 4800 MHz, now it’s increased to 96GB dual-channel DDR5 5200 MHz. The other specifications remain largely unchanged, including up to 8TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage, and a 16-inch FullHD+ (1920×1200) matte finish display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 165 Hz refresh rate.

In addition to these updates, the laptop can be configured with a dedicated graphics card from NVIDIA’s most recent RTX 40 Series. This includes the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060, or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070.

“Featuring a 16:10 display, the Oryx Pro excels at intensive tasks like engineering and gaming,” said System76. “The Oryx Pro’s 16:10 (1200p) display means more convenient reviewing of code, documents, and emails. Game on up to an NVIDIA RTX 4070 GPU while the HX-class Intel i9 compiles your code fast.”

Connectivity-wise, the Oryx Pro laptop features a 2.5GbE Ethernet LAN port, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5, an HDMI port with HDCP, a Mini DisplayPort 1.4, a Thunderbolt 4 port, 2-in-1 3.5mm audio jack (headphone and microphone), a dedicated microphone jack, and an SD card reader.

As with all of System76’s Linux notebooks, the new Oryx Pro comes pre-installed with System76’s Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS or with Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish), as well as the System76 Open Firmware (Coreboot, EDK2, System76 Firmware Apps) and System76 Open Source Embedded Controller Firmware.

System76 is all set to officially launch its new Oryx Pro model on April 2nd, although you can configure and pre-order it today itself. The basic configuration starts from $1899 USD and features NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics, 16GB dual-channel DDR5 4800 MHz RAM, and 500GB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage.

Pre-order the new Oryx Pro laptop before its launch on April 2nd and avail a discount of $100 USD.
