The M2 GEN 5 mobile workstation delivers the best out-of-the-box Linux experience with the most powerful mobile hardware. The astounding 32-thread CPU, dazzling RTX 40-series GPUs, high-speed DDR5 RAM, and NVMe 4.0 storage makes it a superb choice for machine learning, 3D modeling, Kubernetes clusters, Steam gaming, and content creation.
Blaze through single- and multicore jobs like never before. The 24-core, 32-thread “Raptor Lake” i9-13900HX CPU, combined with superior cooling and high-quality 4800 MHz DDR5 RAM, provides performance few mobile or desktop systems can match. Geekbench tests show performance increases of 12 and 56% for single- and multi-core scores.
Get amazing performance and features with performance-tuned Nvidia® GeForce® RTX Ada Lovelace GPUs. Third-gen ray-tracing and 4th-gen tensor cores provide a vast performance to jump up to machine learning, video editing, simulations, 3D rendering, and Steam games.
The 4090 M is 72% faster in ML and 70% faster in Blender rendering compared to the prior mobile king, the RTX 3080 Ti M; see the benchmarks below for more details. In fact, all the GPU options outperform their predecessors and all but the most expensive and advanced desktop GPUs.
Each system also has an integrated Intel UHD GPU with 32 execution units clocked up to 1.65 GHz. The M2 will remind you to switch to this mode when on battery to conserve power. It provides strong desktop performance and is also useful when you want to use all the VRAM of the Nvidia GPU for tasks like ML or 3D rendering.
Enjoy simple beauty without sacrificing performance. Nearly all exterior surfaces are aluminum alloy, with a resin screen bezel and excellent build quality. Everything you see, touch, or hear exudes quality, include the Audio & Visual, Precision Keyboard & Touchpad, and Helpful Focus Tools.
Enjoy a feast for your eyes and ears. Tackle high-speed simulations and games on a 15.6" or 17.3" 100% DCI-P3 color IPS display with 240 Hz refresh rate. Additional features include G-Sync, > 350 nits of brightness, and wide viewing angles (> 135°).
Entertain your friends with crisp and loud high-dynamic-range stereo speakers. Join meetings with near-zero setup using the integrated noise-cancelling microphone array and the crisp, 2.0 megapixel 1080p webcam. Secure against prying eyes with the physical cam cover.
The Focus Hardware System optimizes for the display and sound by setting the correct kernel parameters and setting the nominal DPI for both the GUI and virtual terminals.
Command your computer with precision. Light your keys with one of 65,536 colors. Type quickly and accurately with reliable scissor mechanisms and 4 mm of travel. Use 2- and 3-finger gestures on the precision glass touchpad to tap and scroll effortlessly through documents.
The Focus Hardware System optimizes for the keyboard and touchpad. It adjusts the Quick Hint widget to provide guidance specifically for the model; it configures the touchpad driver for sensitivity and multitouch support; and it provides a tool to set and preserve the keyboard backlight color.
Get the features you want. The Open-source Focus Tools build on the capabilities of the excellent Kubuntu 22.04 LTS OS. These handy utilities are designed to help you take advantage of the hardware and make your life easier every day. For example, you can open the power tool and unplug the AC to see settings change in real time to maximize battery life, or change the settings to suit your needs.
Get started fast with the comprehensive Welcome Wizard. Explore features from the Feature Guide. Install recommended Curated Apps using a single click. Read Guided Solutions HOWTOs created and maintained for your system. And enjoy updates to these tools delivered without fuss in regular package upgrades.
Communicate fast with the latest Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet technologies. Enjoy the ease of connecting just about anything to 10 high-speed ports without expensive dongles or docks.
Rapidly communicate using the latest technologies like 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.1 technologies, whether at home, at work, or on the road.
Connect to anything, anytime, with all the high-speed ports you need. For example, you can surround yourself with three external 4K monitors, run ML on an eGPU, navigate with a wireless mouse and keyboard, and charge-and-debug a phone. All at the same time.
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 M2 GEN 5, and we encourage you to compare the results with your device or others.
Develop native TensorFlow pipelines quickly with the fastest RTX GPUs and industry-standard PyCharm IDE and JetBrains Toolbox. The 40-series GPUs enjoy up to 72% gains in ML thanks to fourth-generation Tensor cores and very efficient TSMC 5 nm "4N" lithography.
Run GPU-accelerated ML immediately using the Focus GPU AI Suite to install and test Anaconda, TensorFlow, PyTorch, and Jupyter Notebook. The Focus team tests and coordinates CUDA, cuDNN, and TensorRT libraries. When tested versions become available, you can easily upgrade them through normal software updates.

Revel in unparalleled mobile GPU performance. Even laptops with the same GPU name are often detuned to prevent over-stressing the cooling system. In contrast, M2 has excellent cooling and the GPU uses the highest power settings to provide up to 28% better performance.
The 8 GB RTX 4060 runs most of the demanding benchmarks well over 60 FPS on High or Ultra settings. Upgrade all the way to a 16GB RTX 4090 to get the ultimate in mobile GPU performance. All provide class-leading performance for video editing, simulations, 3D rendering, Steam games, and machine learning.

Outpace 99% of all devices tested in the Blender benchmarks using the RTX 4090. It is 3.5 times faster than the most expensive proprietary Unix® laptops. Even the RTX 4060 outpaces 90% of devices tested and is 2 times faster. Besides the amazing GPU hardware, the OptiX rendering library provided with Nvidia RTX GPUs is usually many times faster than CUDA, OpenCL, or CPU rendering used by other systems.
