ORIGIN PC EVO17-S Laptop Review: Powerful, Thin GeForce RTX-Powered Gaming

Origin PC EVO17-S Review: PCMark and 3DMark Performance

Next we ran PCMark 10, which simulates real-world productivity, content creation, and content consumption scenarios using several common applications. This is a trace-base benchmark that employs specific, real software applications and workloads.

Futuremark PCMark 10 Benchmark
Content Creation And Productivity Tests

The EVO17-S performed very well in PCMark 10. Some of the tests (Productivity and Digital Content Creation) showed a significant improvement over previous-gen platforms, while others didn't. The additional CPU cache and more powerful GPU won't help across the board with every workload, of course, but when they can be leverages, the performance of a machine like this one is strong.

3DMark Fire Strike Extreme And Time Spy
Synthetic DirectX Gaming And Graphics Testing
3DMark is a synthetic GPU benchmark for assessing graphics performance.  3DMark supports both DX11 and DX12, depending on the particular test being run, which makes it handy for testing GPUs of various performance levels.
While we didn't see the kind of performance we were expecting in Cinebench R15's OpenGL test, the RTX 2080 Max-Q put up some good numbers in Fire Strike, relatively speaking. In our testing, the RTX 2080 Max-Q delivered performance on-par with a full-powered GTX 1080 and blew past the GTX 1080 Max-Q.
In the more taxing, newer DX12-based Time Spy benchmark the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q in the Origin PC EVO17-S scored 1052 points higher than the GeForce GTX 1080, making it nearly 15% faster and landing the system at the top of the heap.
