After three generations of product efforts, AMD Ryzen’s CPU and thread-tearer product line for HEDT enthusiasts have made more people aware of its huge productivity advantages, and even Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux, has replaced the main device with a 3970X platform. In addition to desktops, the company’s new Ryzen 4000 Series mobile processors are also impressive in the laptop market, such as System76’s Serval WS Series portable Linux workstations.
Previously, System76 had used AMD processors in the Thelio desktop PC product line, but the related notebook product line had been slow to keep up.
But from today, we’re finally getting the Serval WS series portable Linux workstation based on amd Ryzen 3000 processors.
The 15-inch portable Linux workstation is still quite bulky because it focuses on productivity applications. Even so, being able to put such a powerful performance into a thin laptop figure is a bit of a struggle.
According to System76, serval WS is available with a Ryzen 3600, 3700X, or 3900 processor with up to 12 cores/ 24 threads, making it ideal for heavy computing tasks.
Whether at your desk or on the go, Serval WS makes it easy to simulate or render 3D scenes. In addition, AMD processors are highly price-effective, meaning users don’t have to pay much for powerful performance.
On the stand-alone side, Serval WS can choose from NViD’s GeForce GTX 1660Ti or RTX 2070. The latter has a higher CUDA and Tensor core and supports ray tracing.
On the storage side, Serval WS can be equipped with up to 4TB of NVMe SSDs, which can easily read and write up to six times as fast as SATA drives for a more enjoyable experience.
On the software side, it can be pre-installed with its own 64-bit Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS, or Canonical’s Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
Finally, the Systems76 starts at $1,299 (9200 RMB) for the Serval WS portable Linux workstation based on amd Ryzen 3000 processor, and interested friends can choose from the configuration on the official website.
