Origin PC has finally unleashed the successor to its original "Big O" gaming machine that debuted way back in 2010. While the original Big O combined a high-end gaming PC with the internals of an Xbox 360 gaming console, the new 2019 edition of the Big O is a much more ambitious design and was built to celebrate Origin PC’s 10th anniversary. The new Big O combines a badass gaming PC with the internals from an Xbox One X and a PlayStation 4 Pro. In addition, there's also a slot incorporated into the chassis to slide in a Nintendo Switch to complete the console gaming trifecta. The donor Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro are removed from their plastic enclosures and mounted vertically... Read more...
Origin PC has been making the case for buying a premium PC from a boutique builder, ever since its founders set up shop in Florida nearly a decade ago. A little more recently, Origin PC started quite literally making the case, designing a custom chassis for its Genesis (full-tower) and Millennium (mid-tower) desktops that were first introduced in 2014. We are now in 2018 (barely) and to drive home the pun, Origin PC is still making the case (get it?) for these desktop lines. With a new year came an opportunity for Origin PC to refresh these desktops, and that is exactly what it did, both inside and out. As you might expect, the Millennium setup the company sent us is running the latest hardware,... Read more...
It was not that long ago when the idea of buying a gaming laptop meant spending a heavy premium versus a desktop setup. That was always a tough pill to swallow, because for the most part, there was no way to upgrade critical components like a GPU, down the road a bit. What you got is what you would have to live with for the life of your laptop. That latter restriction remains today but now, more than ever with more powerful mobile platforms, gaming laptops can offer a reasonably good return on investment. That is certainly true of the EON15-S from Origin PC, the 15.6-inch frag-ready notebook we're looking at today.With a starting price of $999, the EON15-S is not an expensive gaming laptop...

It used to be that large physical dimensions were a telltale sign of a Herculean gaming PC. Looming desktop towers with wild looking exteriors indicated the presence of serious hardware inside. Cracking one open might reveal multiple graphics cards and fancy liquid cooling setups, both almost considered prerequisites in order to crank up the eye candy in demanding games and to play at high resolutions. But somewhere along the way, things began to change. While some of the most powerful gaming systems still reside inside gargantuan full tower enclosures, a growing number of decked out desktops have gone the opposite route. One of the best examples of this is Origin PC's Chronos line of small form... Read more...
We here at HotHardware love a good gaming PC, and the folks over at Origin PC are doing their best to deliver a gaming notebook that packs quite a bit of punch with a respectable price tag. Meet the EON15-S — a 15.6-inch class notebook that hits all the right notes with a starting price of just $999. The EON15-S’s 15.6-inch IPS panel features a FHD (1920x1080) resolution and is backed by NVIDIA’s entry-level, Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with 4GB of memory. While the GTX 1050 isn’t capable of pushing 4K graphics at ultra settings like the monster GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti, it should be up to the task of handling eSports titles at the native 1080p resolution. The EON15-S is... Read more...
PC manufacturers are increasingly turning their attention to gaming notebooks, empowering them with blazing fast processors and state-of-the-art graphics cards. No longer must notebooks place second fiddle to hulking desktops — instead, mobile warriors can now enjoy the same fruits as their more stationary brethren. Such is the case with Origin PC’s EVO15-S, which is a 15-inch class gaming notebook measures just 0.69-inches thick and weighs just under four pounds (3.96-pounds to be exact). Mobile gamers will be greeted with a 15.6-inch 1920x1080 IPS anti-glare display, that is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU (6GB). The onboard GTX 1060 also means that the EVO15-S is VR-ready, capable... Read more...
When a company comes along with a new product and says, "Forget raised. The bar has been destroyed.", they're giving it an incredible build-up that's easy to fall short of. With Origin PC's EON17-SLX, though, the company knows it has a good thing going. If you want high-end desktop performance in a notebook, this is it. A single NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics card is able to push today's hottest games at 1080p with high detail or 1440p with modest detail, but that's not enough power for Origin PC. Nope - this beaut of a notebook is able to accept either two of those fast 980M GPUs for SLI use, or a desktop GTX 980 for mobile which NVIDIA released a few months ago. It might generate a bit more... Read more...
For gamers, the quest for better graphics never ends – you’re always keeping an eye out for something that will give you a better experience or better gaming performance. With LucidLogix Virtu MVP Mobile coming standard on its EON gaming laptops, ORIGIN PC hopes to give you both. Announcing the Virtu MVP launch at PAX, LucidLogix and ORIGIN are pointing to the virtualization technology’s ability to move media processing from one graphics resource to another. The software can improve video playback, but LucidLogix is emphasizing its performance/power consumption balancing benefits for gamers who use laptops. That said, the software supports (and improves gaming performance)... Read more...
They say that patience is a virtue, but sometimes the excitement of a new system proves too tempting to wait a week or two for new technology that might be just around the corner. That was a case prior to Intel's Ivy Bridge launch, though there's no reason to kick yourself if you jumped the gun and ordered a rig from Origin PC. Why? The boutique system vendor dropped us a note to tell us it's currently "giving a free upgrade to Ivy Bridge processors on all desktop and laptop orders that were ordered prior to Ivy Bridge launch." How cool is that? Ivy Bridge desktops systems at Origin PC start at a little under $1,200. That type of investment gets you a Chronos small form factor (SFF) gaming rig... Read more...
You may already be familiar with Origin PC's high octane EON17-S and EON15-S gaming laptops, but you've never seen them like this before. Sporting a complete redesign from the inside out, these are some of the first notebooks on the planet to feature Intel's next generation HM77 chipset (mobile Ivy Bridge). The redesigned EON17-S and EON15-S also boast mobile Kepler parts from NVIDIA, including GeForce GTX 660M, 670M, and overclocked 675M options. Combined with NVIDIA's Optimus technology, Origin PC claims you'll be able to squeeze up to 6.5 hours of battery life out these notebooks, which is two and a half times longer than previous generation EON17-S and EON15-S could muster. Other features... Read more...
Recognizing that people sometimes want a new PC right away, Origin PC announced a new line of ready-to-ship systems. The Millennium RTS is available for $1799 and includes an Intel Core i5 2500K with ORIGIN PC's professional overclocking service, maintenance free liquid cooling, NVIDIA 580 graphics, a 120GB SSD, and more. According to Origin, the system will ship within one business day once the payment has been processed.

You know the drill by now: NVIDIA releases a new GPU, and pre-fab PC makers jump at the chance to upgrade their machines with the latest and greatest. This week, the GTX 560M was revealed for notebooks, and sure enough, it looks as if Origin PC was working in conjunction with NVIDIA. The reason? Because Origin has just made the 560M available on all of their laptops, including the beastly EON-17S. Pricing on those machines varies based on what other components you stuff in there, but trust us: the 560M isn't cheap. But what else would you expect from an option that just became available within the past 24 hours? That's the price of living on the bleeding edge, but at least the option is there... Read more...
Gaming desktops, by and large, are large. Ahem, or should we say, "towering?" Either way, the bulk of hardcore gaming desktops on the market today ship in massive cases, with plenty of room for extra PCIe cards, hard drives, and pretty much anything else you'd want to toss in there. But small form factor systems have a place in all of this as well, as shown by companies such as Shuttle. Origin PC is a company that started with just a towering desktop option, but as business has progressed, they've seen fit to reveal an SFF box as well. This week, they're introducing the Chronos, a smaller system that touts Intel's 2nd-gen Core processors, a smaller-than-average footprint (great for studio apartments... Read more...
Is this the world's ultimate gaming PC? You could probably argue either way, but we're pretty sure it's the world's ultimate entertainment machine. Pound for pound, you'll be hard pressed to find a desktop tower with more fun-per-square-inch than on Origin PC's new "Big O." This mammoth machine is unlike anything we have ever seen. Rather than just stuffing a flashy tower with the most cutting-edge components, Origin has decided to go above and beyond the call of duty. How so? By placing a top-of-the-line gaming PC and an Xbox 360 Slim inside a single tower. One tower, two gaming machines. This desktop is likely to be one of the largest and heaviest on the market, but considering just how functional... Read more...
