Origin PC EVO17-S Review: Storage and Content Creation

We prefer to test gaming notebooks as they ship from the manufacturer, to give you all an accurate picture of expected "out of box" performance. The only changes made to the Origin PC EVO17-S prior to testing were to fully update the OS and and display drivers. Other than that, except where noted, we kept all other settings unchanged from the factory. Our test unit came with a 500GB Samsung M.2 SSD with read and write speed rating s of 3,400 MB/s and 3,200MB/s, respectively. We tested that first...

ATTO Disk Benchmark
Peak Sequential Read And Write Storage Throughput
ATTO is a relatively simple test that checks read/write performance of storage devices with various block sizes.
Alienware M15 C Drive Results

In our testing the Samsung SSD performed very close to its peak ratings. At higher queue depths the sequential read performance was above 3GB/s, while the sequential write performance was just under 3GB/s.

Cinebench R15
3D Rendering On The CPU And GPU

Cinebench offers CPU and GPU tests and provides a glimpse of peak, multi-threaded CPU performance -- the GPU test is much more tame. The benchmark is based on Maxon’s Cinema 4D modeling software that’s used in movie productions. 

Right off the bat we can see there is very little improvement when comparing Intel's 8th and 9th gen 8750H and 9750H processors. Both are very similar with the latter simply having a higher clock speed and more L3 cache. The graphics score was on the low side as well, most likely due to driver / software differences on the test machines.
