Model:

The Origin PC EVO15-S is a member of the new generation of gaming laptops that slim down, while running graphics cards powerful enough to work with virtual reality hardware, such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Razer was a trailblazer in this category, and mainstream brands like Alienware are catching up. Now even Origin PC, a boutique PC builder known for massive no-compromise systems, has a slim 15-inch gaming laptop with one of Nvidia's new GeForce 1060 GPUs inside. As far as gaming laptops are concerned, the EVO15-S by Origin PC is one of the few that one can tote around with ease. It measures a slim 0.69 by 15 by 9.8 inches (HWD) and weighs a relatively light 4.3 pounds. It's also much more compact than a typical 15-inch gaming laptop. The EVO15-S looks like a black corporate laptop. There is a simple Origin logo on the lid, but it doesn't light up and that's just fine. It's a break from the traditional look of the many previous Origin PC laptops, even if the overall look of this matte black laptop chassis is a bit generic. That's because boutique PC builders like Origin PC, Falcon Northwest and others typically don't design and produce laptop bodies, which is a very expensive endeavor only a handful of big PC makers can take on. The anti-ghosting and the multi-color backlit keyboard does feature attractive lighting, which can be customised across three zones and a number of different modes. In addition to the standard Wave and Breathing effects, users can also set the keys to light up in sync with audio, which is a nice feature if the user might otherwise want to keep the light show to a minimum during non-gaming hours.

To further enhance the gaming experience, the EVO15-S features Sound Blaster Cinema 3 software supporting a premium class speaker system. The user can fully immerse themselves in today’s latest game titles and customise the sound coming from the EVO15-S' premium speakers or headphones. Despite the enhanced portability, this is a VR-ready system that combines the aforementioned GPU with an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor (Skylake) and 16GB (2x8GB) of DDR4-2400 memory. That is plenty to power the system's 15.6-inch 1920x1080 IPS display. A 256GB NVMe M.2 SSD paired with a 2TB hard drive provides fast storage for apps and games with lots of room to shovel pictures, videos, and other data out of the way. The EVO15-S also has ample port options, for connecting VR headsets and more. On the left side, there is a security lock slot, an Ethernet jack, an SD-card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, a headset jack, and a microphone jack. The right side houses the power button, a USB 2.0 port, a USB-C port, an HDMI port, a Mini DisplayPort connector, and the power jack. In the top bezel, the user will also find a full-HD 30fps webcam. The Origin PC EVO15-S is a good high-end dedicated gaming machine for those who can't afford to get an Alienware or a Razer gaming machine.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
