System76 Releases New Thelio Desktop

Mar 11, 2021

One of the most ardent supporters of open source hardware has released a new desktop machine for home or office.

System76 is best known for their high quality Linux laptops and their boundary-pushing desktops. And with their Thelio line of desktops designed and built-in house, with open source firmware, bios, and OS, they hold a very high appeal to Linux users.

The Thelio lineup is impressive and their newest entry to the lineup stands in between the base model, Thelio, and the next up, the Thelio Major. This new model, the Thelio Mira, has room for up to 2 GPUs, ships with either a 3rd or 4th gen AMD Ryzen, and can support up to 128 GB of RAM. So even with a small footprint (17.18” × 9.96” × 13.03”), you’re getting massive power to do important (or not so important) work.

Other standout specs include:

  • NVIDIA Graphics (GT 1030, GTX 1650 Super: 1 × DisplayPort, 1 × HDMI, 1 × DVI, RTX 3070: 3 × DisplayPort, 1 × HDMI, Quadro RTX 4000: 3 × DisplayPort, 1 × DisplayPort over USB-C, Quadro RTX 5000: 4 × DisplayPort, 1 × DisplayPort over USB-C, Quadro RTX 6000: 4 x DisplayPort, 1 × DisplayPort over USB-C, Quadro RTX 8000: 4 x DisplayPort, 1 × DisplayPort over USB-C)
  • Storage Up to 36 TB, 2 × M.2 PCIe Gen4 NVMe and 4 × 2.5” SATA drives
  • Rear Ports 1 × USB Type-C, with USB 3.2 Gen 2 support, 7 × USB 3.2 Gen 2, 1 × GbE RJ-45 port, 1 × 2.5G RJ-45 port
  • Rear Audio 5 × Audio Jacks, 1 × Optical S/PDIF out
