CES 2020 - Origin PC, the boutique system builder recently acquired by Corsair, has made some waves at CES 2020. Today Origin announced their new M-Class studio desktop. The M-Class Studio desktop is targeted at professional class users who need maximum power for tasks such as video, and photo editing, 3D Modeling, and various other creative workflows.


The M-Class Studio desktop is something that is well outside of what we consider "in the wheelhouse" of a custom boutique builder like Origin, until now. With their recent acquisition by Corsair, they got a massive shot in the arm, and likely some wiggle room to expand their offerings beyond extreme gaming-focused rigs and into the professional application realm.


One of the key features enabling productivity-focused builds from Origin is NVIDIA's new "Studio drivers," which are tuned and optimized for professional workload performance. These drivers have been tested and shown to accelerate professional workflows by a significant margin for professional users while still retaining the gaming performance users have come to know.


The M-Class studio desktop can be configured with either an Intel i5 9700K or an i9 9900K. Ram starts at 16GB and goes up from there based on your needs; you can configure it. Storage defaults to a 500GB 970 EVO Plus, which is a speedy NVMe option, but can be increased to meet your application needs. The heavy lifter is the GPU, and the M-Class studio desktop can be configured with a full range of NVIDIA RTX GPUs. From an RTX 2060 up to the top tier TITAN RTX, along with RTX Quadro 3000 and up.

The Origin M-Class studio desktop is designed for creative The inclusion of Quadro GPUs is a necessary and vital inclusion as single precision performance on consumer GeForce GPUs can be significantly lower compared to the professional focused Quadro parts. This difference can be a significant factor in many workstations users purchasing decisions as many heavily productivity-focused applications can benefit from the extra unlocked precision performance offered by the NVIDIA Quadro series of GPUs.

I started my PC journey around the age of six in 1989. Now to present day, I have established myself in the overclocking world and even the XOC scene spending many years pushing hardware on LN2 to find the far edge limits of all new and even old platforms I can get my hands on. I have also worked with design and R&D on various components including PC chassis to optimize the layout and performance for enthusiasts like myself.
