    Phoronix: System76 May Offer AMD Ryzen Laptops When They Begin Their Own Manufacturing

    System76 is preparing to begin shipping their new Lemur Pro laptop in early April. This will be their most open laptop yet albeit still based on Intel.

    These are Comet Lake, 14nm CPUs still (also known as 14nm+++++). For reference, Broadwell in 2015 was 14 nm.
    Do these at least come with hardware mitigations?

    It seems to me Ryzen CPUs are the way to go, I hope the "we are looking into it" is real, and rather short term.

      I'm still curious if this has any implications for coreboot / oreboot, given that some of System76 laptops based of of Intel do rely on Coreboot.

        I've always wanted to support a strong Linux hardware vendor. They need AMD options to get my support though.

          What is the placement of speakers? I accept speakers only right in front of the screen.

                    How do you see the screen then?
