Origin Genesis Review: Triple Titan Terror


As some of you might recall, as part of NVIDIA's GTX Titan launch NVIDIA not only sent out individual cards, but also some custom concept systems to showcase the unique aspects of Titan. Specifically its high quality construction and how its...

Origin Genesis (i7-3930k)


The Origin Genesis (Core i7-3930K) is a powerful high-end gaming desktop, but it ultimately comes short in the battle with its nearest rivals.

Provides excellent gaming, productivity performance. Good selection of ports, including USB 3.0 and phone charger. Includes hefty power supply, two SSDs for primary storage

Not the fastest at all tests. Fans can be noisy during 3D gaming. Three video cards block expansion slots

Origin Genesis Z68: Crushes Benchmarks, Not Budgets


If you're looking for power and performance, you probably won't be surprised to find it in Origin's latest monster desktop. Origin's Genesis Z68 is powerful as well as different-looking in its pretty white chassis (though, thankfully, less...

Attractive chassis ; A plethora of available ports

Gets dirty very easily ; Packed to the gills, with little room to maneuver

If you're looking for power and performance, it probably won't surprise you to know that you'll find it in Origin's latest monster desktop.

Origin Genesis Midtower 2011


The performance desktop world has been shaken rather soundly with the arrival of Intel's second-generation Core processors. And you'd be hard-pressed to find better proof than the $2000 Origin Genesis Midtower, revamped with the Core i7-2600K processor...

Stellar price-to-performance ratio

Lacks a Blu-ray player

Origin has updated the Genesis Midtower desktop for 2011 with Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs. While far less imposing than its larger sibling, this machine represents one of the best price-to-performance ratios on our charts, with few sacrifices.

Origin Genesis


Thankfully, the desktop comes with a lifetime labor warranty, so you can send the system back to Origin for upgrades at a later date, though you pay for the parts. The Genesis has only a one-year warranty on those parts. Other system builders have...

Insane benchmark scores. Six-core/12-stream overclocked processor. Beautiful design. Good build quality. Accessible drive bays. Plethora of ports, including USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire

Insanely expensive. Huge. Loud fans when set to full speed. Only one-year warranty on parts. DIY upgrades are problematic. C: drive is a little small

The Origin Genesis is an über-gaming PC from some of the guys that helped build Alienware's reputation in the gaming PC market. It has insane performance and an insane price, but if you're the kind who has to choose between commuting in a Maserati or a...

Origin Genesis Desktop Gaming System Preview


There's a new company joining the ranks of boutique system builders with customization options that could turn the head of even the most die-hard DIY-er. The paint is scarcely dry on the Origin logo—the business opened on November 17th—but the...

Now that you've seen the system specs on paper (and they're pretty darn fine), let's peak inside the case.

Origin Genesis


Origin is a very unique company that allows you to customize a single gaming computer into something truly amazing. We found that the base model would require a few upgrades to bring it up to par with the other systems we've reviewed. However, if you...

There are faster gaming systems available

A wide range of customization options allow you to build your perfect computer from the ground up, and Origin's comprehensive lifetime support will help you stay pleased with your Genesis for a long time.

Performance ; Build quality ; SSD RAID 0 array

No USB 3.0 at the front

Origin's Genesis Z68 is fast, expandable and, best of all, very well put together. It showcases some of the neatest cable management we've seen in a PC submitted to our Test Centre and it really highlights how much effort Origin puts in to its products...
