Intel finally announced the Core i9-10900K at the end of last month, hailing it as the best CPU for gaming money can buy—read our review here. But if you’d prefer to use all that power in a laptop, Origin has crammed the KF version—the one without integrated graphics—into its EON17-X gaming machine and the NS-17 workstation variant.

With the EON17-X, not only do you get the 10 cores/20 threads and 5.3GHz clock speeds of the 10900KF, but also the graphical punch of an RTX 2080 SUPER with Max-P design.

Nvidia’s card powers a 17.3-inch G-Sync screen that comes as either 144Hz@1080p, 240Hz@1080p, or 60Hz@4K, the latter of which boasts 100 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space.

The impressive specs don’t end there. You also get up to 8TB of storage across multiple drives, up to 64GB of RAM in the four DDR4 RAM slots—with a 128GB option on the way, Thunderbolt 3, a pair of mini display port 1.4 connections, HDMI out, ethernet, and five USB ports that include two Type-C. There’s also a microSD card reader, and being a gaming laptop, it’s the law that you get a backlit keyboard with RGB per-key lighting.

Audio comes courtesy of Creative’s Sound Blaster Atlas and Super X-Fi tech, along with 3.5mm microphone and headphone jacks.

Both the Origin EON17-X and Origin NS-17 start at $2,599 and are available now. There’s also the option of getting your purchase UV printed or laser etched, or even having a custom paint job applied.

Well, it doubles as a room heater, so there's that.And you can bench press it for exercise. I'll take one ...let me go set up that gofundme account now. I'll let y'all know the link soon!
Come on brother. I know you are joking but my 19-year-old niece has an MSI GT75 that she carries (until lockdown) all day at school. It is near 14 lbs complete and she is fine. I have a GT76 Titan and it does get hot, of course, but not as hot as some thin and light laptops that have wussy internals and Fred Flintstone era cooling. How hot is too hot is a relative thing.

Assuming the 10900K is power limited to 125W, the 2080 Super Max-P is rated a little higher at 150W; so 275W for the two (at full load). That's quite a bit of heat for such a small 'case.' That in itself wouldn't necessarily concern me, but the cooling system would do - I personally don't like noisy laptops nor ones with keyboards that get hot. I've used a CAD laptop with less than half the power of EON17-X and it was awful in both respects.

Yea I have had some real noisemakers in the past too. The laptop I had before this one was an Asus GL703GS with an i7 8750H and a 125 watt 1070, but it was quite thin all things considered and man did it make some noise. Not so much gaming but when doing audio\video work for my business.
