    The article doesn't tell us much about the laptop other than it is supposed to be "the quietest yet most performant Linux laptop".
    In my mind, "quiet" and "performant" for a laptop means power efficiency.
    However these days, power efficiency means anything but an intel processor... so they don't appear to be very serious with that goal.
    I am hoping to be surprised ... but I won't hold my breath.
    I'm assuming they just mean that it will be quieter and faster than their previous Clevo laptops. Faster by using the newer CPU. Quieter by designing the chassis and cooling system for more quietness. Probably won't be that hard to achieve.

    Does these files have any more details about the specs? Will it have a dGPU? They said it'll be the "quietest most performant" laptop, but I wouldn't call a laptop performant without a dGPU. Hopefully they'll at least include an Arc dGPU in it.

    AMD don’t support coreboot, they’re not even a possible choice.

    As stated in the article and a response above, it sounds like coreboot support was a requirement for their overall design goals of making this thing as open as they could.

    Unfortunately AMD doesn't do any of the coreboot work required to get its chips on a system like this. So it would appear to be AMD that's not under consideration, not the other way around.

    Phoronix: System76 Begins Publishing "Virgo" Laptop PCB Design Specs, Confirms Intel Raptor Lake

    For months Linux hardware vendor System76 has been teasing their in-house designed and manufactured "Virgo" laptop to be built at their facility in Denver. They are hoping to develop the quietest yet most performant Linux laptop. Today they published the initial open-source design files for their custom motherboard PCB in this laptop...
