Neat laptop paired up with Snapdragon X Elite SoC

TUXEDO Computers aims to bring Qualcomm Snapdragon X SoCs to the Linux platform and has recently unveiled such a laptop.

The company is developing an ARM on Linux laptop and has pictured the prototype at the Computex 2024 show. While the company did not reveal any details in its press release, the prototype was spotted running the Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite X1E80100 CPU, which packs 12 CPU cores. The rest of the specifications included a 14-inch 2560x1600 IPS screen, 32GB of LPDDR5X memory, and a PCIe Gen 4 SSD slot.

According to TUXEDO, the team has working hard to make it work on Linux, and is currently working on:

  • End-to-end hardware video decoding, on Firefox and Chrome
  • Implementation of the libcamera-SoftISP camera solution
  • GPU and CPU performance optimizations
  • Power optimizations (Suspend/DCVS)
  • Making our firmware openly available (in Linux-firmware)
  • Access to easy installers (Ubuntu and Debian)

Hopefully, we'll hear more about it in the coming months.
