    Phoronix: New KDE Slimbook Released - Powered By AMD Ryzen 7 4800H

    The KDE Slimbook is getting a big upgrade in the form of the ProX and ProX 15 that are powered by AMD's Ryzen 7 4800H "Renoir" processor for offering much better performance and all-around better specs...

    Oh, that's excciting! And great timing (for me ;-) ). I hope, we will get the small one with an US keyboard in Europe, too. Cannot wait to see the rest of the specs.

    phoronix Michael, will you check for dual-channel of the RAM, too, please? (And USB-C loading/display, if time permits) :-)

      Michael When you get one, please check if USB-C has DisplayPort alternate mode.

        The Slimbook 15 (https://slimbook.es/en/store/slimboo...ook-15-comprar) looks almost identical to the Tuxedo Pulse 15 (https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/Linux-Hardware/Linux-Notebooks/15-16-inch/TUXEDO-Book-Pulse-15-Gen1.tuxedo) released two days ago. Simbook claims aluminum chassis, Tuxedo claims magnesium, but they look identical CPU(Tuxedo also comes in a Ryzen 5 version) and portwise. Side profiles are similar too. The only difference is that Tuxedo's are black and Slimbooks are white.

        If they do share a motherboard as they seem to, the previous commentators questions can be answered from Tuxedo's much more detailed info page:
        - No displayport in USB-C,
        - Dual Channel Ram is available if you want more than the default 8gb ram (Ram options are: 8, 8+8, 16+16 and 32+32) with speeds up to 3200Mhz

          Why bother ?

              Thanks!

              Oh man, that would be a real pity :-(

                I like Flex 5.
                But if I really needed something Full AMD, Dell G5 15 doesn't seem as bad choice. Well, only choice with nice AMD dGPU.

                For me, something like LG Gram 17, but with AMD would seem to be an ideal machine for my work.
                Nice area to fit 2560x1600, 2in1 functionality, so I can use it for demonstrations and work on fairs, conferences etc.
                17" is nice area that actually enables all those pixels to eb effectively used. Also, it gives great area for demonstation and good volume for big battery.
                It also has great screen tha can make persuaasive presentations even outdoors.
                It just fails on one last criterion - it's Intel only.
                For now.

                  Brane215 It's not a Clevo. If it's based on the same laptop as the Tuxedo one, it's from Tongfang:

                  At least someone claimed that in the story about the Tuxedo one. Don't know if it's true.

                    Brane215 I did not claim it changed anything. It was just some friendly information. You do what you will of it.
