CES 2017: Samsung To Get Back Into PC Gaming With Odyssey Laptops
Like HP and Lenovo before them, Samsung is set to re-launch itself into the gaming laptop space with a new sub-brand called Odyssey.
Due to hit the market in early 2017, the Odyssey will be available in 15.6 and 17.3-inch variations – each boasting a 1080p full HD display and Intel Core i7 processor.
Graphically, the 15.6-inch model packs a punch courtesy of its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050.
Samsung have yet to confirm the graphics card for the 17.3-inch variant.
“The Samsung Notebook Odyssey was designed specifically with gamers in mind and is equipped with exclusive features to offer users one of the best gaming notebook available on the market,” said YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.
“Today, serious and even casual gamers seek computing devices that not only pack power for intense graphics-rich games but also feature a stylish and portable design. We’re excited to expand our PC portfolio with a premium gaming solution featuring refinements in design, cutting-edge technology and enhanced gaming usability,” Choi said.
Australian pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
