Co. Ltd.

Ultimate Gaming Computer: Notebook Odyssey 2

The newly launched Notebook Odyssey 2 sets users on the path to victory with top-notch performance. Notebook Odyssey 2 is equipped with Jet Blade Cooling System, which conquers heat while maintaining the game performance, thus avoiding performance degradation due to overheating caused by extended usage. Inspired by a fighter jet’s turbine blade, the Jet Blade Blower’s design transforms heat energy to thrust energy. These blowers quickly draw in external air from the top and bottom of the laptop to discharge internal heat instantaneously to maximize the cooling effect. The airflow created by 83 meticulously fine 0.25mm jet blades sees a 15% increase in air volume than the previous model, which minimizes noise caused by air friction when the blowers are in motion. 

Notebook Odyssey 2 now has an increased total of five heat pipes, resulting in a 40% increase in the exothermal area and drastically enhanced performance. Notebook Odyssey 2 has two massive blowers that significantly maximize the area covered by the fans. 

Notebook Odyssey 2 has a total of four Quadral cooling RHE fins (Remote Heat Exchanger Fin), two for each cooling blower, to innovatively boost dual cooling power. The RHE fins help eliminate heat by capturing heat transferred by the heat pipe as much as possible so that the blower can effectively expel it. Compared to the previous model, the 250 fins double the heat transfer rates (about 380W/mk). 

Additionally, the laptop’s design takes users’ posture and hand position into consideration. Cold external air is drawn in from the top of the keyboard and the bottom of the laptop, and heated air is discharged through the back and sides of the laptop so that heated air does not go through users’ hands or faces, preventing any physical discomfort to users. 

Notebook Odyssey 2’s thickness is at 19.9mm, which is the absolute minimum thickness that can effectively control heat while housing a high-performance graphics card, GeForce RTX™2060 Max-P. Its 3D Mark11 Performance has been raised by 47% than the previous model, and Ray tracing rendering has been increased six times. With the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 Processor, Notebook Odyssey 2 allows users to handle tasks such as 4K video editing, high-resolution image editing and VR games. 

Notebook Odyssey 2's large backplane is equipped with two PCIe NVMe SSD slots, two DDR4 2,400MHz memory slots and one HDD. Users can replace the embedded ones or add more for upgrades according to their needed usage amount for video games. 

To enhance users’ gaming experience, Notebook Odyssey 2 comes with the preset Odyssey mode for different game settings. Users can easily activate or switch through different profiles by pressing the Fn and F11 keys simultaneously. The Beast Mode can raise gaming performances up to about 15% by dramatically boosting the graphics card’s performance, and at the same time maintain heightened graphics capabilities for users to effortlessly enjoy performance-demanding games. The Game Display Mode automatically equalizes its definition based on the game genres, such as FPS, AOS, RTS or RPG, helping users dominate the game and enjoy their virtual adventures with optimized visuals on the screen. The Black Equalizer can adjust the black level of a screen from 0 to 10 based on users’ need to better distinguish enemies hiding in the dark and circumvent dangerous situations from unseen enemies lurking in shadowy areas of the screen. This feature can be set in advance as a profile in the Odyssey Mode and easily activated by pressing the Fn and F11 keys simultaneously when gaming. 

Notebook Odyssey 2 is equipped with a 5.9mm narrow bezel and a display with a 144Hz refresh rate, which utilizes NVIDIA® G-SYNC® technology that dynamically syncs the refresh rates of the display to ensure users never miss a second of the game. In addition, Notebook Odyssey 2 has an oval-shaped hole & grill structured speaker module to secure a 37% aperture ratio and more than twice better sound performance. The Dolby Atmos technology presents a multi-dimensional surround sound that allows users to hear footsteps of enemies sneaking up behind without missing any beats, so they can fully enjoy the digital gaming world.

The new Lattice Keyboard incorporates aesthetics with engineering, delivering an optimal typing experience with comfortable and precise keycaps. Typing accuracy is enhanced without compromising the elegant appearance. With the newest ThunderAmp technology, the brand-new speakers can boost the volume smoothly by 178%[1], providing a professional-grade and immersive audio experience without external speakers. 

Notebook 9 Pro is not only equipped with the 8th generation Intel Whiskey Lake processor for better computing performance, but it also supports GIGA WiFi that provides 1.7Gbps[2]connection speed, enabling users to send or save high-capacity files more quickly. Notebook 9 Pro also comes with a large 55Wh battery that lasts 13.5 hours on a full charge. With a compatible external battery pack and the fast charging function, users can enjoy an uninterrupted mobile working experience. Furthermore, Notebook 9 Pro features a new thermal design built to maintain optimal performance at all times. 

Notebook 9 Pro supports different writing or drawing tasks with the Active Pen. A variety of exclusive software offers a wide range of ways for users to take advantage of the pen. Using Voice Note with Pen, users can create high-quality audio recordings with the built-in Far-field Mic. During recording, users can also create memos and notes to facilitate revision afterwards. Samsung Gallery is a software that syncs with photos on Samsung smartphone, enabling users to check and edit their photos on the notebook. Besides, Notebook 9 Pro is equipped with Samsung Flow which synchronizes the notebook with Samsung smartphone, allowing users to reply phone messages and send files via their notebook.

Notebook 7 Force comes with a wide range of ports, including USB-C port, USB 3.0, HDMI 2.0, and an Ethernet port, allowing users to easily connect all their devices. 

The sleek and slim Notebook 7 Force is wrapped in solid metal, and it measures just 17.9mm thick.
