Origin PC is one of the major providers of custom-built gaming rigs in the NA region. The EVO15-S has been its signature gaming laptop lineup for almost 4 years now and it is based on Clevo’s whitebox notebook chassis, which allow for extended customization. With the release of Intel’s Coffe Lake-H hexa-core CPUs later this month, Origin PC is planning to refresh the EVO15-S series with more powerful options, including hexa-core CPUs, Nvidia Max-Q GPUs and improved LCD displays.

The first major addition to the EVO15-S lineup is the Intel hexa-core i7-8750H CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz (4.1 GHz boost) that comes with the new HM370 express chipset. Users can choose among generic DDR4-2400 of G.Skill Ripjaws DRR4-2400/2666 RAM in 8/16/32 GB configurations. The storage options include combos of up to 1 TB NVMe SSDs and up to 2 TB 5400 RPM HDDs. Display-wise, the latest additions are the 15-inch 144 Hz FHD matte display and the 4K IPS matte display with 94% sRGB color gamut. In order to reduce the thickness of the chassis, Origin PC now includes the possibility to choose an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q 8 GB GPU.

Here is a list with all the other features:
•    SD card reader
•    FHD webcam
•    HD Audio Sound Blaster
•    Intel Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5.0 (i7-8750H only)
•    Ports: 1 x HDMI, 2x miniDP, 2x USB 3.1 Type-C, 3x USB 3.0, GbE, headphone+mic
•    3-Zone 3GB backlit membrane keyboard
•    94.24 Wh battery
•    Dimensions: 14.9 x 9.9 x 0.7 inches
•    Weight: 4.3 lbs and up (depending on the configurations)

The refreshed EVO15-S lineup will begin shipping this may with prices starting at ~US$1,6000.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
