Kubuntu Focus Team Releases New Mini Desktop

Feb 16, 2023

The team behind Kubuntu Focus has released a new NX GEN 2 mini desktop PC powered by Linux.

The Focus NX GEN 2 is a small form factor desktop PC that comes with Kubuntu 22.04 pre-installed and offers plenty of power to help you be productive and entertained.

The power behind this tiny computer shouldn't surprise you, given the specs. The NX GEN 2 ships with a 12th-Gen Intel Core i7-1260P CPU with 16 cores (running at 2.8 GHz with a 4.7 GHz turbo boost), configurable up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, and can house up to a 2TB NVMe boot SSD and a 4TB secondary SATA drive.

The rest of the specs include 10th gen Iris Xe graphics, Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211 Gig+, Bluetooth 5.3, 3 USB-A 3.2 ports, 1 USB-A 2.0 port, 1 audio/mic combo jack, 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports, 2 HDMI 2.1 ports, 1 RJ-45 jack, and a VESA monitor-mount bracket.

The NX GEN 2 has also been tested and configured for expansion with an eGPU. However, the built-in graphics should suffice for most use cases.

The pricing for the Focus NX GEN 2 starts at $995.00 for 8GB of RAM and a 250GB NVMe SSD. You can purchase/configure your Focus NX GEN 2 on the official Kubuntu Focus site.
