Origin unveils Omega high-performance HTPCs

Origin PC, a leading maker of high-performance personal computers for gamers, has announced its new line of its high-end systems. The new Omega home theater PC systems are designed for the living rooms and are projected to wed extreme performance with compact sizes and AV equipment design.

Origin Omega personal computers are based on factory-overclocked quad-core or dual-core Intel processors (up to Core i7-4790K) and may be equipped with 32GB of DDR3 memory, up to three Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 or Radeon R9 290X graphics cards and with high-capacity hard disk drives (up to 14TB). Depending on exact configuration, Origin Omega may use mini-ITX, micro-ATX or ATX motherboards. To guarantee safe overclocking, Origin offers to use liquid cooling.


Origin Omega HTPCs are designed to offer extreme performance in video games even in 4K (3840*2160) resolution. In fact, Omega systems are the only home theater personal computers to support multi-GPU technologies as well as leading-edge performance on par with gaming desktops. Typically HTPCs barely offer enough performance for the latest video games.

The Omega PCs from Origin come with Windows 8.1 operating systems and pre-loaded applications such as Battle.net, EA Origin, U-Play, Netflix, Skype, Steam and other. Eventually Origin will also offer its HTPCs with SteamOS.

The price of Origin Omega systems starts at $999, but high-end configurations can cost $5000 or more.
