While the big name brands of Über gaming laptops Alienware, Envy, ASUS and Razer, were busy with post-Christmas and CES celebrations Origin PC snuck up and stole the crown. The crown for the Über gaming laptop now sits squarely on the Origin PC’s EON17-X. Not willing to rest on their laurels Origin have upgraded the EON17-X which now includes a 3D capable display, creating a new model in the process, the EON17-X3D. The EON17-X took the title, the new 3D model now secures it for Origin.
The secret to Origins advantage is buried deep inside the generously proportioned – 2.2 inches thick – EON 17-X, a complete X79 motherboard. This is the latest and greatest Intel chipset motherboard used by all of the fastest desktop machines and adds weight to the term desktop replacement laptop. Using the X79 allows Origin to include Intel’s latest performance CPU’s including the 3.3Ghz 6 core beast that is the Intel Core i7-3960X. Add to this 2 NVIDIA 580M GPU’s running in tandem using SLI along with the ability to install up to 32GB of RAM and you quickly see why this EON17-X is the new Über King.
