TUXEDO launch their Linux powered XMG FUSION 15 with a 144Hz screen

After what they say are countless hours of work towards it, TUXEDO have now launched their own XMG FUSION 15 with full Linux support and they’re supporting people who purchased it elsewhere.

What’s also known as the Eluktronics Mag-15 or QC7, it’s a very popular Intel and NVIDIA powered laptop that TUXEDO said was done out of “numerous requests for Linux support”. Not only are they directly selling their own XMG FUSION 15 – powered by TUXEDO, they’re also providing all Linux drivers and anything else needed to ensure “full compatibility” retroactively for all customers who own one from any vendor be it the XMG FUSION 15, Eluktronics Mag-15, Aftershock / LEVEL 51 Vapor 15 Pro or the MAINGEAR ELEMENT. If you do own one, take a look here for info.

As for TUXEDO’s own unit, it’s available to buy right now from their online shop. The design is the same, other than them replacing the Super / Windows key with their usual TUX keycap. Specifications:

Sounds like a good unit and it’s on the light side too weighing only about 1.89 kg, and it’s pretty thin too at about 356 x 234 x 20 mm. You’re also getting numerous ports too including 2x USB-A 3.1 Gen1, 1x USB-A 3.1 Gen2, 1x Thunderbolt 3/USB-C 3.1 Gen2, 1x HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP 2.2), mic and headphone ports, a RJ45 LAN port and a card reader too.

TUXEDO mentioned that their driver package ensures “full keyboard support including hotkeys, several different fan profiles and seamless graphics switching between the Intel iGPU and the dedicated NVIDIA GPU, while self-developed software solutions, like the TUXEDO Control Center, enable the selection or creation of different performance profiles according to the user’s preferences and use cases”. They also mentioned their web-based setup system called TUXEDO WebFAI and their myTUXEDO cloud services which they say “meet the highest German data protection standards”.

If interested you can find it on their store here. The base price is €1,349.
