Origin’s EVO 15-S gaming laptop weighs measures about 0.7 inches thick and weighs about 4.3 pounds. That’s been true since Origin first launched the EVO 15-S in 2016. But the company has updated the specs several times without increasing the laptop’s size or weight.
Last year we got 2nd-gen hardware with an optional 4K display, more powerful graphics, and a faster CPU.
And this year Origin is cranking things up another notch with support for Intel’s new Core i7-8750H hexa-core processor and an optional 144 Hz display.
The new Origin EVO 15-S supports up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max Q GPU, up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 memory, and has an m.2 PCIe slot for up to 2TB of solid state storage and a 2.5″ drive bay for up to 4TB of hard drive or SSD storage.
Origin will offer 3 display options for the 15.6 inch notebook:
- 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD)
- 1920 x 1080 pixel matte 144 Hz
- 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS
It also has Sound BlasterX Pro-Gaming 360 audio, 802.11ac WiFi, and plenty of ports, including:
- 2 USB 3.1 Type-C
- 3 USB 3.0 Type-A
- 1 USB 2.0 Type-A
- SD card reader
- HDMI 2.0
- 2 mini DisplayPort 1.3
- Mic and headphone jacks
- Gigabit Ethernet
Origin hasn’t announced the price for its new EVO 15-S yet, but last year’s model currently sells for about $1,700 and up.
