    TUXEDO Polaris 17


    The choice is up to you! Linux gaming laptop with AMD Ryzen or Intel Core i7.


    The TUXEDO Polaris 17 dares the balancing act and offers you the choice: Intel Core i7 vs AMD Ryzen 7 stand for high-end mobile CPUs.


    Together with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 Ti or RTX 2060 Refresh, the compact and relatively light gaming laptop offers a lot of performance for games and content creation despite its large 17.3 inch screen.



    Polaryzing decision


    AMD or Intel? The choice is up to you! With the TUXEDO Polaris 17, we want to leave it up to you to decide which processor (manufacturer) you prefer and thus give you even more configuration options!


    You can either choose the Intel Core i7-10750H with 6 cores | 12 threads and clock rates of up to 5 GHz on the one side. On the AMD side, you have the choice between the Ryzen 5 4600H with up to 4 GHz, also equipped with 6 cores | 12 threads, and the popular AMD Ryzen 7 4800H with 8 physical cores for up to 16 simultaneous tasks and clock rates of up to 4.2 GHz.



    AMD vs Intel - on par for gaming


    With such powerful processor options you are spoilt for choice: AMD or Intel? 6-core processor or Octacore CPU?


    Besides a personal brand preference, it depends primarily on your main usage scenarios: The Polaris 17 with Intel and AMD scores almost equally in gaming with rarely (very) small advantages for the Core i7-10750H.


    Does your focus mainly lie on multithreaded work though, such as photo-, video- or 3D editing and rendering, the Polaris 17 benefits quite a bit from the two extra cores of the Ryzen 7 4800H. If the budget plays a major role, AMD's powerful Ryzen 5 4600H hexacore processor is the CPU of choice.



    NVIDIA graphics for fast gaming performance


    Customers can choose between the budget-friendly NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650Ti (4 GB GDDR6 | max. 50 watts) and the RTX 2060 Refresh (6 GB GDDR6 | max. 110 watts). While the former represents a good entry level GPU into gaming, the latter marks the start into the high-end range of mobile GPUs and is perfectly suited for demanding gaming in 1080p and 1440p.


    The two NVIDIA GPUs of the current Turing generation are also a good choice for Content Creator: Besides gaming, the GTX 1650Ti and the RTX 2060 Refresh also contribute high performance to rendering processes for productivity- and creative software thanks to their 1024 and 1920 CUDA cores respectively.



    Unobtrusive, robust chassis and 144 Hz display


    The TUXEDO Polaris 17 comes in an unobtrusively designed and robust chassis made of resin with a soft-touch finish for a good grip and feel.
    With compact dimensions of 395.7 * 260.8 * 30.05 mm and a weight of only 2.5 kg, the Polaris 17 retains a good mobility factor despite its large 17.3 inch screen, thus combining desktop replacement with high portability.


    No gaming without a fast, 'ghosting-free' display with high refresh rate and no content creation without good color gamut! The TUXEDO Polaris 17 serves both interest groups ideally and integrates a non-glare 144 Hz FullHD type-IPS display with ~300 nits of brightness and a coverage of 100 % of the sRGB color space.



    62 Wh battery and up to 3x external screens


    For mobile use, the understated looking Linux gaming laptop is equipped with a 62 Wh battery, which enables the device to run for up to 6 hours at medium brightness with Wifi, at office work. When on idle usage, up to 10 hours (idle) are achievable.


    An comprehensive port setup with 4x USB (including 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen2) and a card reader (SD / SDHC / SDXC) for data exchange as well as 2x Mini Displayport 1.4 (G-SYNC compatible) and 1x HDMI 2.0 for multi-monitor usage complete the impressive overall package of the TUXEDO Polaris 17.

    Technical Details

    Display / Monitor

    Modern displays with IPS panels have bright areas along the frame as a normal characteristic. This has hardly any influence on everyday operation, not least because the displays are optimized for daylight operation. It can only be minimized, but not completely avoided, regardless of the manufacturer and for manufacturing reasons. Details on pixel error classes can be found here.


    Type: LED-Backlight Display, non-glare
    IPS technology (particularly strong colours, extremely bright, very stable viewing angle)
    Size: 17,3" (43.9cm)
    Resolution: Full-HD, 1920 x 1080
    Color Gamut: 100% sRGB
    Viewing Angle: 89°/89°/89°/89°
    Display opening angle: approx. 145°

    Luminance: ~300 cd/m²



    Dimensions: width: 39.57 cm; height: 3.05 cm; depth: 26.08 cm
    Weight: approx. 2.5 kg with battery


    Keyboard and Touchpad

    Full sized keyboard with number pad.
    Multicolor (RGB) backlit keyboard, means that the writing on the keys have backlight! Brightness can be controlled and deactivated by special keys.

    Battery & power supply

    Big 62 Wh battery, 4 cells lithium-polymer
    Changeable (screwed inside)
    150 Watt (GTX 1650Ti) / 180 Watt (RTX 2060 Refresh) Power supply unit

    Power plug:
    Type: Coaxial
    Inner diameter: 2.5mm
    Outer diameter: 5.5mm
    Length: 12.5mm

    Battery life: (with our optimizations)
    up to 10 hours at min. display-brightness, without Wifi & Bluetooth, without keyboard backlit, in idle mode
    up to 6 hours at medium brightness with Wifi, at office work


    We're testing battery time always in idle mode, at minimal display brightness, with keyboard backlight deactivated, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth disabled and without any further connected devices (USB, LAN, HDMI, VGA etc. unplugged!). We always test with integrated graphics when a dedicated and integrated graphics chip is installed.
    This way you get an information of maximal possible battery life. Starting from this, you can manage your individual battery life depending on your demands and to influence it, e.g. is keyboard backlight unnecessary during daylight. Bluetooth is also only needed to be turned on, if there's a Bluetooth device connected. Full display brightness as well is hardly always necessary.

    Cooling System & Fan

    Temperature controlled fan
    At low system workload, there is less heat emerging. The cooling system fans can spin accordingly slow or even turn themselves off completely. Depending on the chassis, cooling system and CPU and GPU, high to very high fan noise (air swooshing) is produced under full load. Thinner notebooks normally tend to get louder due to less cooling capacity.

    Custom performance and fan control with the TUXEDO Control Center
    With the TUXEDO Control Center you are able to control the performance and the behavior of the fans by yourself. This means that you get the ability to make your device as quiet as possible. By heavily reducing the performance you are able to set the device almost passive cooled, without any fan noise most of the time!
