Interstellar performance in a
17-inch premium enclosure
The TUXEDO Stellaris series features the most powerful notebook hardware on the market without losing sight of the mobility aspect. The result? Maximum high-end performance in a still relatively compact chassis and a large battery for a great combination of power and portability.
The TUXEDO Stellaris 17 - Gen4 raises the level of the series to a whole new level with its new premium-quality enclosure, high-quality 16:10 WQHD display, new Cherry MX mechanical keyboard and - compared to its predecessor - improved cooling.
As befits the top-of-the-line configuration, it features no less than the fastest graphics card for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (TGP up to 175 watts) and AMD's most powerful Ryzen 6000 CPU, the Ryzen 9 6900HX, for outstanding performance and class-leading efficiency.
The maximum-sized 99 Wh lithium polymer battery, brand-new DDR5-4800 MHz RAM, and support for TUXEDO Aquaris stationary water cooling gadget underscore the TUXEDO Stellaris 17 - Gen4's high-tech credentials.
Rock solid premium chassis with great balance of cooling performance and mobility
In Generation 4, the Stellaris 17 does not only come with a new, but the simply best quality TUXEDO notebook enclosure to date. The high-quality aluminum chassis not only impresses with its excellent stability and robustness, but also with very solid, high quality haptics.
While the large aluminum display lid is held stably in position thanks to its perfectly tight centered hinge, the base unit of the Linux high-end notebook offers a rubberized and grippy soft-touch coating.
Thanks to a - for a high-end desktop replacement - moderate weight of 2.8 kg and an chassis height of 27 mm, the Stellaris 17 not only offers enough space for the mechanical Cherry MX keyboard with a long key travel, but also for a powerful cooling system that is superior to the ones of typical thin-and-light gaming notebooks and has to dissipate no less than the heat of the fastest notebook components on the market.
Giving customers the option to maintain and upgrade their Linux laptop is a top priority at TUXEDO. Therefore, besides the two accessable cooling fans, all other upgradeable components are located easily accessible as well: The two DDR5 SO-DIMM RAM slots, the two M.2 SSD slots below the left fan, the replaceable wireless module below the right fan as well as the internally screwed 99 Wh battery.
Galactic graphics performance
thanks to maximum TGP
With the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti in NVIDIA's maximum power limit configuration (Total Graphics Power up to 175 watts*) and massive 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM, the TUXEDO Stellaris 17 - Gen4 offers the absolute top models on the market!
For more price-conscious customers the Linux gaming notebook can also be configured with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with a TGP of up to 150 watts* and 8 gigabyte GDDR6 graphics memory.
Whether video or 3D rendering at highest speeds or maximum frame rates in the most demanding PC games - with NVIDIA's top three fastest laptop graphics cards, the TUXEDO Stellaris 17 plays in the top league and offers best possible future-proofing in terms of performance.
High-end performance meets
outstanding efficiency: AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX
Intel's long-term competitor AMD has placed a big hit with its Ryzen processors: The unprecedented efficiency in this performance class continues to set standards and - together with the 99 Wh battery - helps the high-end Linux notebook to run up to 12 hours with one charge.
But AMD's fastest Ryzen 6000 series mobile CPU doesn't disappoint either when it comes to raw performance: With its 8 efficiency-enhanced cpu cores (Zen 3+), which can each handle 2 processes simultaneously for a total of up to 16 threads, the Ryzen 9 6900HX offers real high-end performance for content creation and gaming.
The up to 4.9 GHz (single-core) fast processor is specified with a standard TDP of 45 watts, which - as with all CPUs - has to be far exceeded for full performance. Thanks to the Stellaris 17's new improved cooling system, the high-end Linux laptop can maintain a sustained power draw of over 65 watts (up to 80 watts via TUXEDO Aquaris) to consistently provide great performance for fast multicore renderings.
Mechanical premium keyboard
with Cherry MX switches
To meet the needs of many gamers, the TUXEDO Stellaris 17 relies on a high-quality, mechanical keyboard with special low-profile switches from the renowned keyboard manufacturer Cherry.
The Cherry MX low profile switches produce a very audible and typical trigger noise and provide an excellent and rock-solid typing experience with a total key travel of 1.8 mm with a per slight press- resistant perceptible pre travel of 0.8 mm.
Features important for sophisticated, competitive gaming, such as N-key rollover and anti-ghosting, are as well supported as per key RGB illumination and - typical for TUXEDO - the laser-etched TUX Super key. The numpad for quick digit input as well as the function keys at the top of the keyboarde equipped with significantly quieter, but no less solid membrane key switches.
The 150 x 95 mm glass clickpad with integrated mouse buttons comes with a huge and smooth surface and allows to be either fully (double tap in the upper left corner) or partly (right half; Double tap in the upper right corner) deactivated.
240 Hz WQHD 16:10 display
As high-end Linux gaming notebook and high-performance workstation in one, the TUXEDO Stellaris 17 not only serves the most sophisticated competitive gamers with an extraordinary high refresh rate of 240 Hz, but also offers above-average image properties for productive tasks, such as video and image editing.
In addition to the WQHD resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels which is the sweet spot of image sharpness and performance, the anti-glare 17-inch panel relies on the widely appreciated 16:10 aspect ratio to provide more vertical screen space compared to conventional 16:9 displays.
The virtually full sRGB color gamut ensures a vivid colorful image, while the screen brightness of over 380 nits makes it possible to use your Stellaris 17 in bright indoor or shadowy outdoor environments giving you flexiblity for your preferred work location.
Outstanding battery life
thanks to a 99 Wh battery
Even though the primary habitat of the Stellaris 17 is going to be the desk, the advantage of a transportable high performance desktop replacement is that it can also be used in a flexible manner in the living room, the garden or on the balcony.
In addition to the - for this performance class - impressively power-saving AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor under low load, the largest possible battery also helps: For this reason, the Stellaris 17 is equipped with a 99 Wh battery, which is the maximum allowed capacity for hand luggage transport on an airplane.
The internal screwed lithium polymer battery elicits runtimes of up to 12 hours which is outstanding for this type of notebook as portable desktop replacement. Under more realistic working conditions with active Wifi, medium display brightness and surfing the web or working in office programs, the 99 Wh battery supplies the 17 incher with energy for around 8 to 9 hours.
We recommend our specially tweaked power profiles in our TUXEDO Control Center for optimizing your Stellaris 17 for most energy-saving operation.
External water cooling
for stationary use
When the heat is on in virtual battles or the most computationally intensive renderings, the TUXEDO Stellaris 17 - Gen4 pushes the limits of cooling with the new, external liquid cooling gadget TUXEDO Aquaris!
Hidden under a black rubber cap on the back of the Stellaris 17 - Gen4 is the quick release connector for plugging the two 650 mm long and 9 mm thick, black sleeved tubes into the notebook. The cooling liquid, which is in the scope of delivery, gets then pumped from the Aquaris' reservoir through a specific cooling tube that sits right on top of the regular air cooling heatpipes inside the Stellaris 17's chassis.
This way, the notebook‘s conventional air cooling gets amplified by TUXEDO Aquaris, resulting in significantly reduced surface and hardware temperatures and lower fan noise. Alternatively, the additional cooling capacity can be invested in maximized CPU performance for rendering at highest speeds.
The TUXEDO Aquaris' weight of 1.39 kg and its relatively small case dimensions of 203 x 75 x 186 mm allow an occasional transport, although - due to the need to carefully empty the Stellaris' water cooling pipe and - if transport may require it - the liquid cooling box beforehand each time - it is clearly designed for stationary use at the desk.
The connectivity of the Linux gaming laptop leaves hardly anything to be desired and offers HDMI 2.1 and USB-C 3.2 Gen2×1 with DisplayPort 1.4a (1x each max. 4K @ 120 Hz) for connecting two external high-resolution monitors. The latter offers the possibility to connect a 3rd monitor to the Stellaris 17 via a MST splitter for a total of 4 screens (3x external, 1x internal).
On the data side, 3x USB Type A ports and a full-size card reader (SD/SDHC/SDXC) are available besides the USB-C 3.2 Gen2×1 port. The connectivity is completed the headphone jack, microphone input, RJ 45 LAN and the optional external water cooling gadget TUXEDO Aquaris.
