Origin PC Unveils EON15-S Laptop: Core i9, GTX 1060, Two PCIe SSDsby Anton Shilov on August 1, 2018 2:00 PM EST
Origin PC on Wednesday introduced its new gaming laptop aimed at customers looking at mid-range designs. The new EON15-S notebook comes in a sub-1-inch thick chassis and is equipped with a six-core Intel CPU, a GTX 1060 GPU, plenty of storage space, and a 15.6-inch Full-HD display.
The Origin PC EON15-S is based on Intel’s Coffee Lake-H platform and will use Intel’s six-core Core i7-8750H or Core i9-8950HK processors, with optional overclocking. Origin PC will traditionally offer its customers to build their EON15-S systems to order, and can integrate up to 32 GB of DDR4-2667 memory as well as up to two M.2/NVMe SSDs featuring 4 TB of storage in total. As for graphics, the laptops will be offered with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6 GB of GDDR5 memory.
One of the key selling points of the EON15-S is its “hybrid” mechanical keyboard featuring individual key RGB lighting as well as WASD and arrow keys covered with a protective layer to improve their durability.
The EON15-S notebook comes with a 15.6-inch Full-HD display, which is good enough considering the installed GPU and positioning of the system as a relatively thin and cost-effective gaming machine. Meanwhile, the laptop also has two mini DisplayPort 1.3 and one HDMI output, therefore supporting up to three external monitors.
When it comes to general I/O connectivity, the EON15-S is outfitted with Intel’s Wireless-AC 9560 CNVi 802.11ac Wi-Fi solution (up to 1.73 Gbps), a GbE port, three USB Type-A connectors (two USB 3.1, one USB 2.0), one USB 3.1 Type-C header, a 2-in-1 SD card reader, and two 3.5-mm audio jacks for input and output. The latter is enhanced with Creative’s Sound Blaster Cinema software to please gamers looking for a more advanced audio subsystem.
Despite being a gaming laptop, the Origin PC EON15-S weighs only 1.54 kilograms (3.4 pounds) and can work for up to eight hours on one battery charge under office workloads.
