Samsung today announced the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z, a laptop that has been crafted with advanced thermal management to ensure uninterrupted gaming.
It was launched in Beijing, China at Intel's Worldwide Launch Event of the 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor with 6 cores, which comes with the Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z.
Redesigned with new thermal management hardware, the in-built Z AeroFlow Cooling System consists of three components: the Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber, the Z AeroFlow Cooling Design and the Z Blade Blower. They're all built to keep the Odyssey Z cool in the heat of battle, whilst remaining lightweight and portable.
The custom designed Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber is an intelligently made airflow, which covers both GPU and CPU from edge to edge for optimal heat management. The Vapor Chamber is aided by Z AeroFlow Cooling Design, to push the cold air to the hottest parts of the device above and below simultaneously. Two built-in Z Blade Blowers add sophistication to the Odyssey Z's thermal architecture.
The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z is powere by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-P graphics card, that punches out at least 10 percent more graphics power over 1060 Max-Q graphics. It is also equipped with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor with 6 cores and 12 thread. The device supports the latest DDR4 memory with a bandwidth of 2,400 MHz.
The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z comes with a refined keyboard with Crater Keycaps and new and Touchpad design, which is located to the side for a more desktop like feel. Shortcut keys also capture and record your gameplay, as well as giving you a Silent mode option, so you can analyze your skills or focus on work with the fan noise able to reach a lowly 22 decibels.
The device will be available in select countries including Korea and China in April, with US availability in Q3 2018.
