Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z
Want to game on-the-go without sacrificing performance? Check out the new Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z. Powered by Windows 10, the new notebook combines an ultra-slim design with an innovative cooling system and top-tier hardware for next-level performance. In addition to being great for games, it’s designed for 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,” says 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.”

Windows 10 complements the features of the new laptop with a refreshed Game Bar that includes native game streaming through Mixer, support for DirectX12 and Xbox Play Anywhere titles, along with premium performance.

Plus, the Notebook Odyssey Z looks and feels great. With an ultra-slim body and brushed aluminum cover, the sleek, 15.6-inch device looks sharp anywhere you take it. The LED-backlit keyboard makes core gaming keys stand out, and customizable hotkeys make it easy to monitor and optimize frame rate, system status and more.

No matter how intense your gaming session is, the Notebook Odyssey Z will stay cool thanks to its 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 turn down Notebook Odyssey Z’s fans if you’re gaming where others want quiet.

Powered by an Intel i7 Hexa-Core processor that lets you play hard at fast speeds, the Notebook Odyssey Z also comes with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card that delivers ultra-fast frame rates and 4K resolution. With a 256GB SSD and 16GB of RAM, your games and apps will load in a flash.

The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z is now available in the U.S. for $1,799.99 and can be purchased at Amazon, Microsoft Stores and Samsung.com. For full product specifications, check out the press release.
