New Oryx Pro Laptop gets HX-class CPU Upgrade, Available via Preorder

Engineers & gamers unfold ambition in 16:10 on powerful processing and graphics.

Denver — On a mission to empower curious minds to unfold their ambition, leading Linux computer maker System76 has released a new Oryx Pro laptop with 14th Gen Intel HX-class processing. Featuring a 16:10 display, the Oryx Pro excels at intensive tasks like engineering and gaming.

System76 powerful laptops provide ample performance for users to accomplish their goals faster. The Oryx Pro has been upgraded with a 24-core Intel CPU (from 14 cores). The keyboard is configurable using the System76 Keyboard Configurator application. Additional specs include:

  • 5.8GHz Intel Core i9-14900HX CPU
  • Up to NVIDIA RTX 4070 graphics
  • Up to 96GB, 5200MHz DDR5 RAM
  • 165Hz refresh rate
  • Up to 8TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage
  • 2.5-Gbit Ethernet
  • 2 USB-A, 2 USB-C (1 Thunderbolt), micro SD, HDMI, mini DisplayPort, headset jack
  • 0.78” thin

By default, the Oryx Pro comes with Pop!_OS preinstalled, a Linux-based operating system engineered by System76. Pop!_OS includes an array of convenient, efficient, powerful features that empower users to work in overdrive. Take the System76 Scheduler, for example, which directs CPU resources to your active window, giving you a good boost of performance when compiling code or playing a game.

Auto-tiling is a feature that, when toggled, enables windows to arrange themselves in an adjustable tiled grid.

AI engineers will love the convenience Tensorman offers. Tensorman allows you to manage multiple versions of Tensorflow in Docker, and uses condensed, easy-to-memorize versions of commonly-used commands.

Lastly, Pop!_OS’s Refresh OS feature is one-of-a-kind, and can save your system in a pinch. Available in the recovery partition, Refresh OS reinstalls your operating system while preserving data saved in the Home folder. Refresh OS is a much-needed extra layer of protection for avid tinkerers.

System76’s Intel-powered laptops like the new Oryx Pro use both System76 Open Firmware and Open EC Firmware: lightweight open source firmware that gives you more control over your hardware, boosts performance, optimizes security, and vastly reduces startup times.

Users can save $100 on the new Oryx Pro when they preorder their laptop before April 2nd.
