Like all Kubuntu Focus systems, the Ir14 can save you time and hassle every day with optimized hardware, tested upgrades, curated apps, Focus Tools, HOWTOs designed for your system, and unmatched Linux-first support. See GEN 1 reviews from ZDNET and HowToGeek. Reviews for GEN 2 expected in June and July 2024.

DESIGN

Enjoy the sublime pleasure of quality without sacrificing performance or value. The Ir14 GEN 2 marries the enterprise-class hardware from Carbon Systems® with the meticulous OS integration and Linux-first support from Kubuntu Focus®. Everything you see or touch exudes quality. All chassis surfaces, for example, are aluminum alloy. Other highlights include the Vibrant Display, the Precision Keyboard & Touchpad, and Helpful Focus Tools.

VIBRANT DISPLAY

See and enjoy more with a taller and richer display, sized just-right for clarity and efficiency.

The Focus Hardware System optimizes the display by inserting the correct kernel parameters and scaling both the GUI and virtual terminals for optimal readability.

GRAPHICS

Enjoy seamless desktop performance with Iris® Xe integrated graphics. Add two 4K monitors to expand the display area when at your desk and charge the laptop at the same time. Play mid-level games like CS:GO, Team Fortress 2, Left for Dead, Dota 2, and Minecraft at medium-to-high settings and respectable frame rates. And enjoy the simplicity and efficiency of an iGPU available wherever you go.

If you require class-leading GPU capabilities for visualization, machine learning, video editing, or games, we recommend considering an Nvidia eGPU, or looking at a system like the Focus M2. However, if your needs are more modest, you should be very pleased with the performance and stability of this iGPU.

BENCHMARKS

We benchmark Focus systems extensively to optimize for compatibility and performance. We hope you find the highlights below helpful when assessing the capabilities of the Ir14 GEN 2, and encourage you to compare the results with other devices.

Geekbench Scores

GEEKBENCH

Portable Power

The i5-13500H is a powerful and energy efficient laptop CPU, with strong single- and multicore scores. Apps load quickly, and sleep-resume is nearly instantaneous.

Highly threaded tasks scale well thanks to a generous 18 MB Smart Cache. If you need more performance, you might consider a mobile workstation like the Focus M2 with double the cores, threads, and Smart Cache.
