System76 Leopard Extreme 4 w/ Monitor
On September 17 System76, a small computer company popular for making PCs that work out of the box with Ubuntu, has released a refresh to their most powerful desktop on their desktop line, the Leopard Extreme.

Historically known as one of the most powerful desktop PCs ever to run Ubuntu, the Leopard Extreme has finally seen a long-awaited refresh. The refresh also brings in some upgrades that hardware savvy people will love.

Obviously, the Leopard Extreme update will feature liquid cooling, just like the previous generation. This allows for the best performance, as your CPU is cooled by liquid instead of air (this cuts down on a lot of noise too).

The base specs are as followed:

  • Quad-core Intel Core i7-4820K @ 3.70Ghz
  • 8GB DDR3 RAM (1866 MHz)
  • 1GB nVidia GeForce GTX 650 (384 CUDA Cores)
