CES 2017: Samsung Unveils Samsung Odyssey Gaming Notebook

At CES 2017, we took our yearly tour of the Samsung booth. We got to see some of the Samsung highlights of 2016, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the Samsung Gear S3. Now for the first time, Samsung unveiled their first ever gaming-focused laptop in the form of the Samsung Notebook Odyssey. Let’s dive in…

The base specs of the Samsung Notebook Odyssey are ready to keep up and compete with the PC gaming requirements of today’s day and age. The 15-inch and 17-inch variants of the Samsung Notebook Odyssey both top off with the 7th Gen Intel i7 Quad Core processor. Each model also sports an anti-glare angle display with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080, with the obvious difference being in screen size. Also, each model houses the HexaFlow Vent technology for heat dispersion and laptop cooling. You’ll notice that the ventilation is designed to look like dragon scales, for that extra bit of geeky / gamer flare.

After that, core difference between the two models lay in how much of everything else you get stuff the body. Between the two, the 17-inch Samsung Notebook Odyssey will allow for higher spec possibilities in memory, storage and ports. The 17-inch model will also allow for full RGB LED customization of its keys while the 15-inch variant will glow only in a deep ominous red. The graphics card to be used in the 17-inch Samsung Notebook Odyssey has yet to be determined.

Despite such sleek and complete-looking products being shown to us at CES 2017, it looks like these models are still being finalized. But you can sign up for Samsung’s Notebook Odyssey newsletter to keep tabs on its release and price points here…
