CES 2017: Samsung Announces “Notebook Odyssey” Gaming Laptop

Samsung has finally taken the gaming PC plunge with their new Samsung Notebook Odyssey Gaming Laptop, and unveiled the new series at this years CES.

Coming in 15 ” and 17 ” versions, the Odyssey is a little more flashy than Samsung’s usual minimalist design, with a backlit icon on the cover, multicolored keyboard lights, and a decorative outline around the touchpad.

The bottom has a series of vents across the bottom in a crosshatch pattern, which Samsung calls “hexaflow”, and is designed for cooling and access to the components.

The power inside the laptops isn’t anything groundbreaking, offering pretty standard specs. The 15-inch will have a Nvidia GeForce 1050 graphics card, while the 17-inch GPU hasn’t been officially announced yet, though likely to be a 1070 or 1080.

Both with run on Intel’s new 7th-generation Core i7 Kaby Lake processors, and have 1920×1080 resolution screens with anti-glare coating.

Rounding out the rest of the internals, the 17-inch comes with 64GB of DDR4 RAM with a 512 SSD and 1TB hard drive for storage. The 15-incher will have 32GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256GB SSD plus 1TB of storage capacity.

The Samsung Odyssey Notebooks do not have a finalized price or release date yet, but analysts are predicting a spring 2017 launch.
