Even though AMD has already released its Ryzen Mobile 4000 Series of processors, Origin PC has gone one step further for their new AMD gaming laptop, assuming a machine that uses AMD's Ryzen 3000 desktop processors. Dubbed the EON15-X AMD, the high-end gaming laptop is available with a choice of three different Ryzen 3000 desktop SKUs, including the 12 core Ryzen 9 3900. And yet even with a desktop class processor, this isn't a luggable, desktop-type laptop; the 15-inch notebook is only 1.2-inches thick and weighs less than 6 pounds.

Thew new EON15-X AMD is the latest update to Origin PC's lineup of EON15 gaming laptops, with a specific emphasis on supporting AMD's Ryzen desktop processors. The EON15-X AMD is in 6, 8, and 12 core configurations, which is perfect for gamers and content creators looking to utilize the multi-core performance of AMD's 7 nm Zen 2 architecture. This is paired with various memory configurations, with the notebook able to accomodate up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666.

And since this is a gaming laptop, it's of course equipped with high-end display and GPU options. The EON15-X AMD comes with a 15.6" 1080p 144 Hz screen which is fitting given current trends in gaming laptops, as we as being a good fit for what resolutions current-generation mobile GPUs can handle. Speaking of GPUs, Origin PC is offering users a choice between an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB, and a GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB graphics card; both NVIDIA cards are full-size.

Overall, Origin is offering a fairly comprehensive set of customizations on its official product page. Along with the memory options mentioned earlier, the laptop offers support for up to two M.2 SSDs, and a single HDD bay which can accommodate SATA based drives, resulting in a plethora of storage options. In a maximum configuration, the EON15-X AMD supports up to 2 TB NVMe Gen4 drives, M.2 SATA based 2 TB drives, and up to 4 TB of SATA SSDs which can be configured within the customizer

    Terrible spec

    Memory that will cost 10% FPS minimum

    No 2080 option

    Avoid I think

    The article has genuinely peaks my interest. I’m going to bookmark your web page and maintain checking for new details. I really loved reading your blog, valuable information.

    This laptop is terribly configured, and really looks bad in the face of the recent mobile 4000 series.

    The new Asus Zephyrus G14 for example is superior in almost every category and for many hundreds less. 4900 (8c/16t), 16GB 3200MHz, 1TB SSD, 2060, $1500.

    The base model Origin should be a 3700x, 16GB 2666MHz, 1TB SSD, with the 2060 for the $1600 they're asking, if it even wants a chance to be considered. Currently such a configuration is $2000.

    Currently the only merit for this Origin unit is if you absolutely need/must have more CPU power than a 4900 in a laptop, meaning you want the 3900. Even then though, aren't there other "portable" options for less (slim ITX etc)?

    I feel the same way. I was super excited to see a 12 core potential workstation 3 months ago and was thinking about buying one the day it came to market.

    There's just too many compromises here. No XMP, so actually getting ddr4 3200 is straight forward, a usb2.0 port (why?), one of the m.2 slots is only sata (which is a limitation of the b450 chipset), and without switchable graphics this thing will constantly use somewhere around 46 watts, even at idle.

    The biggest compromise for me is the display. There's no 2k/4k option. I'm really not that concerned with pixel density but in my experience with 1080 displays the color reproduction is terrible. "72% ntsc" usually means about 90% of srgb and you can forget anything passible with wider gamuts. 99 times out of 100 anything 4k will have wide gamut support with 90+% of adobe or dci-p3.

    This leaves me asking who is going to buy these? Not content creators with that display.
    Not gamers without a 2080 (budget gamers maybe)
    No one will be happy with the battery life, and as you mentioned the mobile 4900 is more than capable and can be configured for less and you won't have to make any compromises or only 1 or 2 compromises compared to this thing.

    Hopefully the gen 2 of this idea will get it right.

    No RX 5600m or RX 5700m as a GPU option.
    Memory is too slow... and the base configuration is already to expensive with only 8GB 2400 MhZ RAM (which is slow).

    I want a proper desktop replacement like the one Acer built in the form of PH517-61 with same cooling (which mas monstrous), along with support for Zen 2 and high speed RAM.
    Better yet, Acer should just release a BIOS update for PH517-61 which will allow users to upgrade directly to Zen 2 and high speed RAM.

    These OEM's are ripping people off on base config alone, nevermind if you try to configure something better.

    What is HDMI TM?

    That printing seems overpriced. I've had custom covers printed for a quarter of that, and even with inflation it'd probably only be a half now. One area DIY pays.
  • wolfesteinabhi - Monday, April 13, 2020 - link

    i dont know why these laptop makers dont include 3950X in such builds.... its way more efficient (and better binned) than 3900X and mostly runs a bit cooler too.
