Samsung has unveiled a new gaming laptop called the Samsung Odyssey Z. The availability of the Odyssey will be initially limited to South Korea and China. However, the company is yet to announce the pricing of the laptop. The Samsung Odyssey Z comes with the latest Intel CPU and NVIDIA GPU. Additionally, Samsung has redesigned the notebook with four fan setup for thermal management using Z AeroFlow cooling system. As the Z Blades are located on up top, the company has squeezed the keypad and trackpad in the same frame. Though this sounds like an intellectual design choice, it does look hideous.
Samsung Odyssey Z Specs
The Samsung Odyssey Z has a 15.6 inch 1920 x 1080 px IPS LCD display. Under the hood, the device is powered by the 8th Gen Intel Core i7 chipset with NVIDIA GTX 1060 MAX-P GPU. The graphics card offers up to 10% more processing power than the 1060 MAX-Q. Additionally, the notebook has up to 16GB LPDDR4 RAM and 1TB NVMe based SSD. Additionally, the notebook packs in a 1.5 Watt speaker and a red coloured backlit keypad.
To keep the device cool all the time, Samsung has incorporated a new technology called ‘Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber’, which helps to reduce the temperature of CPU and GPU. The notebook comes with a massive 54Wh battery and a 180 Watt power adapter in the retail package. The notebook comes with plenty of connectivity options, including 3X USB A, HDMI, LAN port, and a USB type C port.
