Origin's EON17-SLX Laptop is Ready to Dance with Dual GPUs

Paul Lilly

Before anyone asks, the answer is yes, Origin's new EON17-SLX laptop with support for up to two discrete GPUs has enough horsepower to carry Crysis on its back while lugging around a sack of eye candy. Even without dual graphics cards, the EON17-SLX is, on paper, a pretty potent system with the requisite hardware to properly drive a 17.3-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution.

Pricing starts at $1,882 and for that, the EON17-SLX comes equipped with an Intel Core i5 3320M dual-core processor, AMD Radeon HD 7970M graphics card, 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, 320GB hard drive, 8X DVD burner, 7.1 channel audio with THX TruStudio Pro technology, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, media card reader, USB 3.0 ports, backlit keyboard, 2MP webcam, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Upgrade options abound, depending on your budget. You could, for example, deck out the EON17-SLX with up to an overclocked Intel Core i7 3920XM quad-core processor, 32GB of RAM, dual hard drives or SSDs configured in RAID 0/1, a TV tuner, and of course up to two Radeon HD 7970M or GeForce GTX 680M graphics cards in Crossfire (AMD) or SLI (Nvidia).
