Origin EON17-X - a gaming laptop with the power of a desktop PC

If you are in a hunt for a great gaming laptop with high performance ability then you have to stop and take a look at the new Origin EON17-X which is a great gaming laptop out there. It is powered with the latest i7 processor and the technical specifications to run any high end game in the market like a charm. Read on to know more about the features and even pros and cons of EON17-X.


Origin's EON17-X is internally a more powerful machine than you would think when you first look at it. Though it has got the latest i7 processor which is the latest processor from Intel in it, the major difference comes into picture when you know that the chip inside this machine is the same chip used in the desktop PCs which makes it even more powerful when it comes to cope up with high performance demands. This 17.3 inch laptop supports up to 32 GB of RAM which is more than enough for any game you would like to play. The integrated NVIDIA graphics card does the trick when it comes to improving the graphical performance of the system. So, let's look at the technical specification and the features of Origin EON17-X.

Technical Specification

The following are the technical specifications of Origin EON17-X.


This laptop is powered with the latest Intel Core i7 6700K Quad-Core 4.0GHz with a TurboBoost of 4.2 GHz. The specialty of this laptop is that it is equipped with the same chip that resides in desktop PCs. Usually laptop and desktop processor chips are built differently to help absorb less power but affects the performance of the laptop to some extent. But this laptop includes the desktop chip but still does a great job in maintaining it in this tiny body. The latest processor will boost your laptop performance and will guarantee no lag. There are also other models of the same laptop with i5 processors in case you don't need an i7 processor.


You can get the model you want in terms of main memory. This laptop has the capacity to contain 32 GB of RAM. This huge memory is enough to load lots of data in it which eliminates the need of the laptop to access the hard disk frequently. Larger RAM is also needed in many graphical applications like 3D modeling, animation and game development engines.


Origin EON17-X laptop comes with NVIDIA GTX 965M with 4 GB which is incredible and you hardly see this much of graphic memory in any laptop in the market. Surprisingly they also have a model with NVIDIA graphics card with 6GB and 8 GB as well. But I think 4GB is more than enough for today's high end 3D games.

Operating System

Origin EON17-X laptop comes with MS Windows 8.1 operating system which has a free upgrade to Windows 10. Or you can choose to buy the Windows 10 Home or Professional version directly. The latest Windows OS will make sure that you have all the required drivers for the latest devices and even the prerequisites for most of the latest software applications and games.


As far as storage space is concerned there are different models to choose from. You have the option of selecting hard disks from 500 GB to 2 TB with RPMs of 5400 to 7200. SSD is also available ranging from 120 GB to 500 GB. SSD loads your games or software applications faster than ever. It also loads up the OS pretty fast. So, it is advisable to have SSD at least for the drive from which to boot the OS up.


It has the latest version of Bluetooth, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and 3.1 ports which delivers you the fastest transfer rates through USB. It has a built in 2 Megapixel web camera to let you do video conferencing. It is powered with Integrated High-Definition Audio powered by Sound Blaster Xfi MB5 w/ external 7.1 support. It also has an HDMI port to allow you to connect your laptop to an external screen.


The display is a 17.3 inch backlit matte display. The display resolution in full HD (1920 X 1080) to let you enjoy the detail of every pixel in your game. The large screen will let you get immersed in the game fully.


Now let's look at some of the special features that EON17-X offers its users.


Customization is a sought out feature by most gamers since they like to be different from others and do something extraordinary. Origin PC offers custom design for the lid. You can choose from the different designs available in their official website or you can choose your own design. You can also customize the backlit keyboard with the color you want.

Thinner and Lighter

The new model is 37.5% thinner and 30% lighter the previous model. This makes it easy for you to carry your gaming laptop anywhere you want.

Pros and Cons


  • Mind blowing processor
  • Customizable laptop
  • Value for money


  • Design is not mind blowing. But anyway everyone has their own taste.

The bottom line

I must say that Origin EON17-X is the one which really does posses the power to deliver assured performance in virtually any game on the planet with its desktop chip inside. This laptop is completely customizable meaning you can select which components you want like you can select the processor from i5 or i7, the RAM, HDD and almost everything so the price will differ in each case. Therefore, you can choose the best model for you keeping in mind the budget you have. So, if you are really searching for an excellent gaming laptop this may be the one for you.
