Focus NX Desktop Mini PC Optimized for Kubuntu 22.04 LTS

Kubuntu Focus has unveiled its new Focus NX mini desktop PC, optimized for Kubuntu 22.04 LTS operating system and KDE Plasma interface. Kubuntu Focus NX Mini PCs can be ordered with the 11th Gen Intel i51135G7 or i71165G7 processor, as well as the Xe iGPU, which is often 3x faster than the previous generation and supports up to four 4K displays simultaneously. “Systems are custom built and can be configured with up to 64GB of dualchannel 3200MHz RAM, 6TB of shared storage (2TB NVMe, 4TB SSD) and optional full disk encryption.”

“NX is ideal for developers, creators and engineers who want or need compatibility with the OS that powers the web and billions of other devices,” says Michael Mikowski, CEO. “We feel that its small size, high performance, and Kubuntu 22.04 LTS OS make it a great choice for developer workstations, office servers, and media centers. With a large selection of ports, an eGPU can be easily added to run large machine learning pipelines or improve rendering performance when needed.”

Paco Nathan is a renowned machine learning expert and consultant. Here is what he has to say about his experience with the Focus M2:

“KFocus pioneered desktop DevOps, which I use to run bare metal on a laptop with a GPU in pretty much the same environment as my HPC cluster in the cloud. Don’t mess around with excuses like “cook”, “xcode”, or ridiculous paths that include backslashes. Get started right away with zero tech giant overhead while KFocus has your support covered by responsive experts, proven system management, and dramafree fixes in daily package updates. Minify your data and build big models without waiting for permission.”
