TUXEDO Computers Develops ARM-Based Linux Laptop Featuring KDE Plasma

German Linux computer manufacturer TUXEDO Computers announced today that the company is working on an ARM-powered Linux laptop with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite SoC and running TUXEDO OS with the KDE Plasma desktop environment.

Last week, TUXEDO Computers unveiled a prototype ARM notebook at the 2024 Computex Taipei computer trade fair powered by a Snapdragon X Elite SoC from Qualcomm with 12 cores, up to 4.6 GHz clock speed, a built-in Adreno GPU with 1.25 GHz clock speed, and 20W TDP, as well as 32 GB LPDDRX5 RAM.

“Benchmarks from Qualcomm suggest that the new Snapdragon can not only catch up with the competition, but also clearly outperform Apple’s M2 SoCs whilst showing higher energy efficiency. Our preliminary measurements confirm these values,” said TUXEDO Computers.

The ARM laptop came with an aluminum body and featured a 14-inch IPS display with 16:10 aspect ratio, 2560×1600 resolution, 400 nits brightness, and 100% sRGB color gamut. Connectivity-wise, the Linux-powered notebook featured USB 4 and HDMI ports.

Software-wise, TUXEDO Computers is working on porting their Ubuntu-based TUXEDO OS distribution to the ARM architecture and mentioned that it will feature the latest KDE Plasma desktop environment by default.

TUXEDO Computers also noted that the product range would not include high-end notebooks or gaming laptops, but would rather focus on a business-class laptop similar to the TUXEDO Pulse or TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro models. However, the ARM laptop is currently in the alpha phase of development with some drivers still missing, expected to be integrated in future kernel versions like Linux 6.10 and 6.11.

The Germany-based company aims for a Christmas 2024 release for its inaugural ARM-powered Linux laptop. For additional information, refer to the press release recently published by TUXEDO Computers on their official website.
