Since last week the Slimbook guys have been talking about a new product called Kymera that would be presented on Saturday, September 15. This new computer is not a new version of a laptop but a desktop computer. The new Slimbook team is called Kymera Aqua and has a younger brother named Kymera Ventus.
The most striking thing about these two teams is that they are desktop computers intended for gaming but with Gnu / Linux instead of Windows. Thus, Slimbook Kymera Aqua contains all the power of liquid-cooled gaming computers and all running under the Gnu / Linux distribution.
In general, when we talk about Linux we do not usually associate it with high prices, but in this case, Slimbook Kymera Aqua does have a high price due to the high quality of its hardware components. The equipment has a processor Intel I7-8700K with 6 cores and 12 threads.
The possibility of having 16, 32 or 64 Gb of DDR4-type ram memory. All about an MSI Z370m GAMING PRO AC motherboard. This motherboard also supports the new ssd hard drives that support read and write speeds of up to 3000MB / s. Graphic work is done the Nvidia GTX 1080Ti GPU with 11GB from memory.
This power is accompanied by a silent liquid cooling that will prevent the equipment from getting hot as well as the possibility of adding LED lights to set the mood for the equipment and a personalized box with the Gnu / Linux and Slimbook penguin.
Slimbook Kymera Aqua has a younger brother named Slimbook Kymera Ventus, a team that uses the traditional cooling of computers with a more moderate power, but if we want to increase the power of the team, the price of the computer will also increase.
The starting price of the Kymera Aqua is 1995 euros, a high price for an office equipment, but nothing expensive if we want to use it for gaming, video editing or high-performance tasks like 3D modeling. Of course, this computer does not come with a keyboard, a mouse or a monitor. So if we do not have these components, we have to buy them separately.
This Slimbook computer is not the first that you create for the desktop environment. At the moment Slimbook has a team called Curve and another called One v2. These teams are an all-in-one and a mini pc that they make together with the new Kymera Aqua, so that all desktop users have a team with Gnu / Linux.
As we say, this computer is for high-performance users or gamers who need powerful hardware. Slimbook Kymera Aqua is not the desktop computer that everyone should have but Yes, it is the most complete desktop computer that we can acquire with the Gnu / Linux operating system.
