Although Samsung is not generally known for laptops, they have recently launched Notebook Odyssey Z. The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z is a 17.9mm thin and light laptop having a commendable engineering. Also, it boasts an 8th-generation Intel i7 processor, a GTX1060 Max-P graphics card, and advanced thermal management allowing a delightful gaming experience.
The Samsung Notebook Odyssey Z takes an entirely new approach to gaming sessions. Samsung designed an all-new Z AeroFlow Cooling System, Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber, and Z Blade Blower. They are the key components to maintain Notebook Odyssey Z’s temperature during heavy gaming. Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber is cleverly made airflow which covers both GPU and CPU. The Vapor Chamber efficiently replaces the hot air of the heating parts of the device with cold air. Meanwhile, the two built-in Z Blade Blowers adds elegance to the Odyssey Z’s thermal architecture. Since the Two ‘Z Blade’ blower fans keep the heat away from both the top and bottom of the laptop simultaneously, the keyboard and trackpad are crafted together.
The Notebook Odyssey Z boasts 15.6-inch display powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-P graphics card. The 1060 Max-P graphics card gives at least 10 percent more graphics power over 1060 Max-Q graphics, ensuring high-resolution visuals. The 6 cores Notebook Odyssey Z, comes with an 8t- generation Intel Core i7 CPU. It is also supported by up to 16 GB of 2,400 MHz DDR4 RAM and 1 TB of SSD storage.
Although the laptop comes with a 54 Wh battery which might not last as long in gaming mode, it includes a 180 W adapter.
