Origin PC on Wednesday introduced its first mobile workstation featuring a professional NVIDIA Quadro P5000 GPU. The NT-15 Quadro uses Intel’s 7th Generation Core i7 CPU and comes with a 15.6-inch 4K Ultra-HD display to satisfy demands of graphics professionals. As for portability, the system can hardly be called thin and light because the manufacturer needed to ensure high performance first, but it is also not heavy nor bulky.

The Origin PC NT-15 Quadro is powered by Intel’s quad-core Core i7-7700HQ CPU (and therefore the Kaby Lake plarform) as well as NVIDIA’s Quadro P4000 discrete GPU (GP104GL) featuring the Max-Q design. The system can accommodate up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory, one M.2/NVMe SSD featuring up to 2 TB capacity, and one 2.5-inch/15-mm drive.

As for connectivity, it is fairly standard for a mobile workstation: an 802.11ac Wi-Fi + Bluetooth controller, a 1 GbE connector, four USB Type-A ports (three USB 3.1, one USB 2.0), two USB 3.1 Type-C headers, three display outputs, a 6-in-1 SD/MMC card reader, a Windows Hello-supporting webcam, a fingerprint scanner, and 3.5-mm audio connectors.

Unfortunately, Origin PC does not disclose battery life of its NT-15 Quadro workstation, but considering the fact that this is a desktop replacement machine with a high-end dGPU, it will work connected to a power outlet most of the time. Meanwhile, the PC features a 0.73-inch (1.85 cm) z-height and weighs 4.36 pounds (1.977 kilograms), so the system should be easy to transport.

Origin PC has offered high-performance laptops featuring advanced discrete GPUs throughout its history, but the NT-15 Quadro appears to be the company’s first recent workstation featuring a professional GPU based on the Pascal architecture. Despite being aimed at professionals, the NT-15 Quadro can still feature a custom paint job or laser etching for personalization purposes, a unique feature for workstations.

Origin PC did not touch upon pricing of its NT-15 Quadro workstation, but it is obvious that mobile workstations equipped with a professional-grade GPU are generally rather expensive. Furthermore, machines featuring 32 GB of RAM and terabytes of NAND flash storage also tend to cost a lot.

    A 7th gen i7 in August 2018 completely screws up this laptop. Dell Precisions, Lenovo P series and HP ZBooks are now using hexa core cpu while this is still quad core. Reply
