This week NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel all launched new chips designed for high-performance gaming laptops. And we’ve seen a lot of companies announce new notebooks powered by those chips. But so far most have had one thing in common: they ship with Windows 10.
Now Spanish PC maker Slimbook has revealed new gaming laptop with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics, and support for Ubuntu or Windows.
The starting price is for an Ubuntu model. You have to pay extra for Windows 10 if you want a dual-boot configuration and/or a notebook that just ships with Windows.
Slimbook’s newest laptop , a 15.6 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display with a 165 Hz refresh rate, and ports including HDMI, Ethernet, USB-C, and USB-A.
The notebook supports up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory and it can be configured with up to 4TB of PCIe NVMe storage (there are M.2 slots, so you can also buy it with just a single SSD and add your own).
The Slimbook Titan weighs about 4.6 pounds and features an aluminum body and a 93.4 Wh battery. It also has a backlit opto-mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB lighting, and Slimbook lets customers choose from Spanish, German, English (US or UK) keyboards layouts.
