Samsung it seems has jumped right into the world of gaming laptops at CES. This puts Samsung on the same list as Lenovo and Dell for gaming laptops. Lenovo launched the Legion series of laptops yesterday and the Notebook Odyssey looks like Samsung’s answer to it.
With gaming laptops becoming popular among mainstream manufacturers, it was expected of Samsung to get into the battle sooner or later. The manufacturer has launched a 15-inch model of the Odyssey at the moment with a bigger 17-inch model coming in April. These gaming laptops are named Odyssey 15 and Odyssey 17 respectively.
Both the laptops come with Full HD displays (1920×1080 pixels resolution). The lower model has a red backlit keyboard while the higher model has a multi-coloured keyboard. The Odyssey laptops are powered by 7th Gen Intel Core i7 Quad Core Processor. The 15-inch model can be configured to have up to 32GB of RAM while the 17-inch model maxes out at 64GB. The smaller Samsung laptop also gets a NVIDIA GTX 1050 onboard while the graphics chip on the bigger model isn’t disclosed yet.
The Odyssey series has dual storage for the 15-inch model (SSD+HDD) while the 17-inch model gets triple storage (2xSSD+HDD). The laptops can be configured for RAM, graphics, and storage by the user. Samsung has mainly used plastic in the construction of these laptops as opposed to metal. The Odyssey goes up against rivals like Lenovo’s Legion, Dell’s Alienware, Asus’ ROG series and Acer’s Predator line-up.
