RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ – September 18, 2018 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., today launched the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z, the ultimate gaming PC that is designed for everyday use. Powered by Windows 10, the new Notebook Odyssey Z combines a portable, ultra-slim design with an innovative cooling system and top-tier hardware for next-level performance. It’s the laptop that’s great for games, as well as other processor-intense activities like video editing and 3D rendering.
“Today’s games are more intense, immersive, and graphic-rich than ever before, and gamers need technology built specifically for them,” said Alanna Cotton, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mobile Computing and Enhancements at Samsung Electronics America. “The Notebook Odyssey Z was engineered to enhance the gaming experience wherever you are – take it anywhere, play without overheating, and use it for the most intense games and projects.”
Game Anytime, Anywhere
The Notebook Odyssey Z is built for users who want the capabilities of a gaming desktop, but who want the flexibility to game anywhere—at a friend’s house, on vacation, or even in a coffee shop. With Windows 10, it comes with the refreshed Game Bar that includes native game streaming through Mixer, support for DirectX12 and Xbox Play Anywhere titles, along with the premium performance that Samsung is known for. This is the gaming laptop that’s just as great to use when the game is over.
Ultra Slim Design
The Notebook Odyssey Z is ready to go where you go. With an ultra-slim body and brushed aluminum cover, the sleek, 15.6″ Notebook Odyssey Z looks sharp anywhere you take it. The LED-backlit keyboard makes core gaming keys pop, and customizable hotkeys make it easy to monitor and optimize frame rate, system status, and more.
Z Airflow Cooling System
No matter how intense your gaming session is, the Notebook Odyssey Z will stay cool with the revolutionary Z AeroFlow Cooling System. Dual internal fans blast cool air through the system, expelling heat from the CPU and GPU at the same time. When you aren’t gaming, the fan stays quiet, so you can work in peace wherever you are. And with Silence Mode, you can even turn down Odyssey Z’s fans if your gaming in public space.
Gaming and Graphics Performance
The Notebook Odyssey Z is powered by an Intel i7 Hexa-Core processor that lets you play hard—as well as edit videos and photos, render in 3D and more—at fast speeds. When the action speeds up, a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce® GTX1060 graphics card delivers ultra-fast frame rates and 4K-resolution and with 256GB SSD and 16GB of RAM, your games and apps will load in a flash.
The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z is available in the US starting today, September 18, 2018, for $1,799.99 and can be purchased at Amazon, Microsoft Store and Samsung.com.
