Gaming laptops seem to be all the rage these days as Samsung is planning on launching their own line of gamer-centric laptops. With Lenovo’s Legion series being announced at CES as well, 2017 might just be the year of gaming laptops taking center stage.
Samsung has planned a 15.6-inch laptop in February and a 17.3-inch gaming powerhouse in April. Their first offering includes a red-backlit keyboard and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 along with a 7th Generation Intel Core processor.
The upgraded model comes with an RGB-lit keyboard and multiple options for SSD storage as well as up to 64GB RAM. While the graphics card hasn’t been announced yet, it will likely be either a 1060 or 1070. The Notebook Odyssey 17 also comes with a Thunderbolt 3 port for data transfer speeds like no other.
One of the main differentiating features of the Samsung Odyssey Notebook is the HexaFlow Vent, which is a perforated panel at the bottom of the device that helps with airflow and manages to keep it cool during hours of heavy gaming.
