The Origin 12-core Ryzen 9 EON15-X wins for Monster Ryzen Laptop of the week


The updated Origin EON15-X is about to disappoint all the enthusiasts who thought their 8-core laptop was pretty rad. Check this: The EON15-X rocks a 12-core Ryzen 9 3900 insides its relatively “light” body.

Origin said the EON15-X (starting at $1,624 currently from Origin) will feature a 15.6-inch, 144Hz panel, GeForce RTX 2070, up to 32GB of RAM, and two 1TB M.2 SSDs plus a 2.5-inch drive bay.

Those are all cool features, but the headliner is clearly the Ryzen 9 3900 desktop chip inside. That’s the power-sipping version of the stellar Ryzen 9 3900X chip—it uses 65 watts instead of 105 watts. Sure, that’s still greedier than the newest 8-core sibling, the Ryzen 9 4900HS, but for those who need the power of 12 cores, it’s likely worth it.

The laptop’s weight is also impressive: 5.9 pounds according to Origin, which isn’t bad for this kind of CPU firepower in a laptop. A Dell XPS 15 tips the scales at about 4.5 pounds, and an Acer Predator Helios 700 takes you to 10.5 pounds. Both those laptops, we should add, top out at 8 cores (although the Helios 700 gives you a much faster GPU and larger screen.)

That weight, however, doesn’t include the 230 watt power brick, which likely adds another couple of pounds to the EON15-X.

Origin’s EON15-X features a 12-core Ryzen 9 3900 and GeForce RTX 2070 graphics without breaking your back.

The laptop is available now from Origin) . For kicks, we outfitted an EON15-X with a 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X, GeForce RTX 2070, enhanced thermal paste, custom cover wrap, 32GB of DDR4/2400 RAM, a two 1TB Samsung 970 Pro, and 4TB Samsung 860 Pro SATA drive, for a total of $4,160. Then we returned to Earth and fit it with the 12-core CPU, RTX 2060, 32GB of RAM, 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD, and 1TB HDD for $2,269.
