At five pounds, the GTX 1050 Ti gaming laptop is light and powerful

Origin PC is looking to expand its portable gaming range of laptops with the new EON15-S. Packing an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti graphics chip alongside Intel core processor technology and up to 6TB of storage, it should be quite a versatile machine. Better yet, it weighs five pounds and is just more than an inch thick.

The Origin PC EON15-S will start at $1,000 with a base configuration that includes an Intel Core i3-7100H from the seventh generation of Intel CPUs. Depending on your preferences, that can be paired up with up to 32GB of DDR4 memory with options for Kingston HyperX Impact 2,133Mhz, G.Skill Ripjaws 2,666Mhz, and Origin’s own branded kits.

Other CPU options include an Intel Core i5-7300HQ clocked at 2.5Ghz and a Core i7-7700HQ clocked at 2.8GHz. Whatever options you go for though, the GTX 1050 Ti 4GB graphics chip is identical in each configuration. That goes on to power the 1,920 x 1,080, 15.6-inch IPS matte display, according to Tom’s Hardware).

When it comes to storage there are plenty of options. You can opt for everything from 120GB, all the way up to two terabytes of M.2 solid-state storage, as well as a secondary 4TB SATA SSD if you need it, though there are also more typical hard drive options and hybrid, flash-caching drives.

Connectivity wise, the Origin PC EON15-S comes with USB 3.0 Type-C and Type-A (x2) ports, as well as an additional USB 2.0 port. There are also two miniDisplayPort connections and a singular HDMI port, so you can output to several external displays with this laptop if you so choose.

All configurations come with an RGB backlit keyboard which can be tweaked with back-end software and a battery that should last up to six hours, though of course, we all know how those can be exaggerated.

The EON15-S laptop comes with a matte-black casing, though in typical Origin fashion, it has options for various metallic colors and themes, though they can cost up to $250 extra. Regardless of options, all come with Origin PC’s lifetime service and support guarantee, as well as a 45-day no-dead-pixel guarantee.

Additional warranties and protections are available at an added cost.

Laptop GPU power limits (TGP): What to know before buying
Keyboard on the Asus ROG Strix G15.

I recently wrote about GPU power limits in laptops, which is much more important than you might think. Differences in power can represent large differences in performance, even for two graphics cards that share the same name on paper.

If you're shopping for one of the best gaming laptops, knowing the power limits of the machine's GPU is essential. I rounded up the power ranges for Nvidia RTX 30-series and AMD RX 6000 mobile graphics cards, as well as some information about how to find the power limit of the graphics card in any machine.

Gaming laptops are lying to us, and no one seems to care

Specs, specs, specs. It all comes down to specs. But not in the world of gaming laptops. Although gaming laptops carry the GPU monikers set by AMD and Nvidia, the reality is that graphics cards with the same name on paper can perform much differently in practice.

AMD and Nvidia allow laptop builders like Alienware, Razer, and ROG to choose how much power to feed the GPU within a range, and that's a good thing. Laptops serve different purposes, and it only makes sense to accommodate many different designs. The problem is that differences in power can represent massive losses in performance, and there isn't enough oversight to force laptop manufacturers to clearly label the GPUs they're using.

Buying an RTX 3070 Ti laptop? Check this key spec first
nvidia geforce rtx 3070 ti power consumption perf msi vector gp66 1

You'd think that buying a laptop with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card guarantees a certain level of performance, but it turns out that may not always be the case.

According to benchmarks done on two laptops with the RTX 3070 Ti, there may be an up to 20% performance difference between different variants of the RTX 3070 Ti, even though they are technically the same GPU. It all comes down to the maximum power consumption.
