TUXEDO Stellaris 15: High-End Linux Gaming Laptop

TUXEDO Stellaris 15 is a 4.9 pound notebook with up to a 2560 x 1440 pixel display featuring a high refresh rate.

TUXEDO Computers is a hardware manufacturer from Germany that develops and manufactures pre-installed devices based on the Linux operating system. Computers, notebooks and PCs from TUXEDO Computers are not mass-produced or off-the-shelf devices. Each device is individually assembled, installed, configured and tested for customers. This process ensures consistent high quality, reliability, quietness and low noise.

While high-end gaming laptops have long been considered heavy, thick and immobile with very short battery runtimes, the TUXEDO Stellaris 15 integrates the fastest notebook graphics card on the market, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (TGP up to 165 watts) into an compact aluminum chassis.

In addition, it features the fastest high-end mobile processors, like the brand new Intel Core i7-11800HAMD Ryzen 7 5800H and even the Ryzen 9 5900HX, and an optomechanical keyboard that convinces gamers as well as frequent typists with a desktop-like typing feel.

Coming with a 3K screen giving you 2,560 x 1,440 pixels to stare at, with a 165Hz IPS panel it’s going to make things look pretty good. Combined with the near full sRGB color gamut, the high resolution of the WQHD display also offers advantages for content creators and their use of creative software, such as for video or image editing. 

Thanks to the internally screwed lithium-ion battery with 93 Wh capacity, the TUXEDO Stellaris 15 gaming notebook lasts almost a full workday. Therefore, up to 8 hours of runtime are possible and 6 hours at medium brightness and moderate work.

In terms of connections, the versions with AMD and Intel processors differ slightly. For example, Thunderbolt 4 with the associated additional functions via USB Type C is only available with an Intel CPU. With an AMD processor, the Type-C port is specified in accordance with the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard.

The manufacturer installs its own Linux distribution Tuxedo OS by default, which is based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with a Budgie desktop and its own themes. Alternatively, a regular Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is also available. You can also pay extra for a licensed version of Windows.

Starting at €1,799, the TUXEDO Stellaris 15 is available to pre-order and configure now, with shipping due to begin on July 15, 2021.
