Origin PC’s dual-graphics laptop could be the fastest portable gaming machine on the market

Origin PC is launching a new laptop today that the company considers to be the fastest portable gaming machine on the market.

The Origin PC EON17-SLX laptop can house dual graphics cards based on the fastest graphics chips from Nvidia or Advanced Micro Devices. The machine can run under Nvidia’s SLI dual-graphics chip mode or with AMD’s CrossFireX technology. That nearly doubles the performance of the laptop with a second discrete graphics processing unit (GPU).

The machine also features overclocked Intel third-generation mobile processors. Those are Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge mobile processors. The machine supports Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 680M and AMD Radeon HD 7970M graphics cards. It is a “game-changing experience” for gamers, the company says.

Miami-based Origin PC makes high-end PCs for gamers and competes with Dell’s Alienware division, Falcon Northwest, Maingear and other gamer PC companies. (Yes, we’d like to hear from them if they’ve got something faster).

The machine features THX TruStudio Pro for high-end audio. The price starts at $1,867.

“Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or professional on the go, nothing beats having the power of an EON laptop with dual-wielding graphics cards” said Kevin Wasielewski, the cofounder and chief executive of Origin PC.
