System76 Updates the 15" Pangolin with Ryzen

Sep 10, 2021

System76 announced they’re updating the Ryzen-powered Pangolin laptop to meet today’s need for more power.

System76 is not just one of the most popular makers of Linux-only hardware, they’re also really good at pushing all of the boundaries and reinventing all of the wheels. This latest move might not push or reinvent, but it certainly gives consumers options for more mobile power.

But this isn’t news, right? The Pangolin was already available with an AMD Ryzen processor. This is a situation where out with the old, in with the new applies, because the company is upping the Ryzen ante by offering the 15" Pangolin with a Ryzen 7 5700U CPU.

Of course, along with this much-improved CPU, comes a slightly steeper price. The previous Ryzen model starts at $1,199.00 and the new version starts at $1,398.00 (due to the $199.00 CPU upgrade). Both iterations include the same base specs (minus the newer CPU). You can purchase the Pangolin with the older Ryzen 5 5500U (with 2.1 up to 4.0 GHz, 8MB cache, 6 cores, and 12 threads), or you can opt to upgrade to the Ryzen 7 5700U (with 1.8 up to 4.3 GHz with 8MB cache, 8 cores, and 16 threads).

The base specs for both machines include 8GB of RAM, a 240 GB SSD, and ships with Pop!_OS.
