Samsung steps into the world of gaming PCs with the Samsung Notebook Odyssey

Samsung is making an entry into the world of gaming PCs today with the Samsung Notebook Odyssey. Available in 17.3-inch and 15.6-inch models, the company promises a blend of powerful specifications, premium features and a beautiful and innovative design in one package.

“The Samsung Notebook Odyssey was designed specifically with gamers in mind and is equipped with exclusive features to offer users one of the best gaming notebook available on the market,” said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

The Samsung Notebook Odyssey has special features that will appeal to gamers, such as the HexaFlow Vent which is an advanced cooling and ventilation system which helps keep the notebook cool. Users can also open the HexaFlow Vent to upgrade the storage and memory on their own.

For optimum performance, the notebook is powered by up to Intel’s latest 7th generation Core i7 processor and it can be configured with up to 64GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM as well as up to 512GB of SSD storage with 1TB hard drive. Graphics load is handled by an NVIDIA GTX1050 graphics card on the 15.6-inch model while Samsung hasn’t confirmed the GPU in the 17.3-inch model.

With the 17.3-inch model, customers get a beautiful viewing experience with a backlight that can go up to 300 nits. The screen has an anti-glare surface treatment to minimize reflections. The notebook has ergonomically curved keycaps and it allows users to choose the backlit color of individual keycaps on the 17.3-inch model for advanced personalization. New software features like PC Message and PC Gallery are also onboard, allowing gamers to easy share messages, files, photos, and more.

Samsung will confirm the pricing and availability details for its first gaming notebook in the near future.

Why is it so hard for manufacturers to use a somewhat classy design on their gaming products, I’ll never know.

i like this so far but the 17.3″ one is the one i need answered about the GPU. If it can come with at least 1070, this could be my next laptop purchase. if it’s got a 1050 only, that will be a bummer.

Nice, and i hope that there will be a GTX 1060, 1070 or 1080 GPU choices if possible or use MXM GPU’s for upgradability.
