Samsung Launches the Notebook Odyssey Z for an Unparalleled Gaming Experience
Advanced thermal management with powerful processor designed for the optimal gaming performance
Samsung Electronics today announced the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z, a strikingly thin and light laptop, that has been crafted with state-of-the art engineering and advanced thermal management to ensure a breathtaking gaming experience.
It was launched in Beijing, China at Intel’s Worldwide Launch Event of the 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor with 6 cores, which comes with the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z.
The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z takes an entirely new approach to gaming. Redesigned with revolutionary thermal management hardware, the in-built Z AeroFlow Cooling System consists of three key components: the Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber, the Z AeroFlow Cooling Design and the Z Blade Blower. They’re all built to keep the Odyssey Z cool in the heat of battle, whilst remaining lightweight and portable, so you can take those powerful gaming experiences with you, wherever you need to go.
The custom designed Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber is an intelligently made airflow, which covers both GPU and CPU from edge to edge for optimal heat management, so you can game at full performance with peace of mind. The Vapor Chamber is aided by Z AeroFlow Cooling Design, to efficiently push the cold air to the hottest parts of the device above and below simultaneously, whilst expelling the warm air out from the vents. Two built-in Z Blade Blowers add sophistication to the Odyssey Z’s thermal architecture, ensuring a sweat free gaming session.
The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z is here to take your gaming to new levels and deliver the full performance of the built-in hardware. With the GeForce GTX 1060, based on the NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture and loaded with innovative new gaming technologies, high resolution visuals are always guaranteed.
Also equipped with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor with 6 cores and 12 threads, the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z delivers an exceptional platform for multi-core tasks like high resolution video editing, 3D rendering and more. The device supports the latest DDR4 memory with a bandwidth of 2,400 MHz, so your games are always operating at lighting quick speed.
Engineered for hardcore gaming performance, the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z comes with a refined keyboard with Crater Keycaps delivering enhanced precision and comfort and new and Touchpad design, which is located to the side for a more desktop like feel. Shortcut keys also capture and record your gameplay, as well as giving you a Silent mode option, so you can comprehensively analyze your skills or focus on work with the fan noise able to reach a lowly 22 decibels.
“With the Notebook Odyssey Z, we set out to create a dynamic, user friendly laptop that would take gaming experiences to new heights, from the vibrant display to powerful processing power output,” said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communication Business at Samsung Electronics. “The seamless visuals, combined with an industry leading cooling system will help give our players an upper hand in their gaming experience.”
The device will be available in select countries including Korea and China in April, with US availability in Q3 2018.
