The temperatures of the laptop under our observation were fairly warm, so we wanted to accurately measure exactly how warm this laptop was getting under intense gaming scenarios. We did this by running 3DMark11 and putting it under the maximum graphical settings to fully load the CPU and GPU. We found that the CPU achieved a maximum core temperature of 79 degrees Celsius and the GPU reached a maximum temperature of 70C. The CPU temperature was a bit warm, but when considering that this is an 11 inch laptop packing a true quad-core processor, it is not much of a surprise. Components and Cooling
Upon doing our temperature testing, we got a little curious and decided to pop off the bottom of the laptop to take a look at the cooling solution. It is apparent in the pictures below that the Clevo solution that Origin opted for is very compact with some very heavy copper cooling.Conclusion
The Origin EON11-S is a very small, yet powerful laptop. In its current spec, it is primarily designed for performance above battery life. We could have opted for the i5 version; however, since we were looking for a desktop replacement class laptop, we sacrificed the extra 30 minutes or so of battery for quite a bit more power. We really enjoyed the portability of the laptop and we got some real gaming done while on vacation. Considering that this is only an 11 inch laptop, and has as much connectivity as a 15 or 17” laptop, there is no doubt that this thing is a technological wonder, albeit a somewhat thick one.
