The heavily customizable EVO15-S gaming laptops are getting refreshed with Intel's latest hexacore CPUs, new 4K screens and GTX 1070 Max-Q GPUs to reduce the Chassis profile even more. Users can add up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666 and up to 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage combiend with up to 2 TB HDDs. Prices start at ~US$1,600.

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

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
