New laptops from Samsung to take you on a gaming OdysseySamsung's new gaming line has a bold design and clever features.
Samsung's got a new laptop at CES 2017 and it's not another ultra thin, ultra light model. It's actually a gaming system. It's more than a gaming system. It's an entirely new gaming line. It's called the Notebook Odyssey series and we saw the Notebook Odyssey 15. That's a 15 inch model. There's also gonna be the Notebook Odyssey 17, which is a 17 inch version. In the 15, you've got an Nvidia 1050 GPU. It's not the highest end graphics card out there but it is perfectly fine for current games that hide details, levels and 1920 by 1020 resolution. Not quite enough for virtual reality but still pretty good, 16 gigs of RAM. It's also got an anti-glare display which I always like seeing especially in the gaming laptop. And Samsung says they built in some hot keys for recording and broadcasting endgame footage which, of course, is what everybody likes to do these days. In the 17th version, you can probably expect some better specs. I like the new design on these, there's a kind of angular pattern around the touch pad and the bottom vents are done in a very interesting cross-hatch pattern. And of course you've got the [UNKNOWN] that backlit keys. They have multi-colored keys. You see that on a lot of the new gaming laptops. So keep an eye out later this year for the Samsung Notebook Odyssey 15 and Odyssey 17.
