The possible turnoff for some users is the lack of a 4K HD display and the utilization of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics. There are no AMD Radeon graphics options for users desiring to use the open-source driver stack or want the integrated graphics processor found with the Ryzen 9 5900HX.

The System76 Kudu has a starting MSRP of $1,799. The specifications are exceptional overall, even with the high cost due to the more undersized buying capability of System76 in comparison with other manufacturers such as ASUS with their ROG STRIX G15 AMD Advantage that is currently available at a more cost-effective price.
