Samsung’s Galaxy Book Odyssey Introduces Nvidia’s New RTX 3050 Ti
Samsung today announced its new Galaxy Book Odyssey gaming laptop, featuring the unexpected GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and 3050 graphics cards from Nvidia. The 15.6-inch (1080p) gaming laptop starts at $ 1,399 and will ship with 11th gen Intel Core H i5 or i7 processors, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 2TB of SSD storage . The big new addition is a choice between Nvidia’s RTX 3050 or RTX 3050 Ti GPU.
Samsung hasn’t provided many details on the RTX 3050 or RTX 3050 Ti, and Nvidia hasn’t even announced the GPU yet, so details are slim. The name RTX 3050 Ti appeared in March on an Asus website that mentioned it would have 4GB of memory. Combined with the numbering scheme and the 135-watt charger, this suggests that this is more of an entry-level gaming laptop.
This Galaxy Book Odyssey also includes a 720p webcam, on / off fingerprint reader and microSD expandable storage. There are two USB-C ports, three USB 3.2 ports, one HDMI port, and one network port. Samsung claims that this new gaming laptop also comes with a mysterious “upgraded cooling system,” which will likely help keep things cool while gaming.
Samsung’s Galaxy Book Odyssey will be available in “Mystic Black” in August, starting at $ 1,399. Samsung also today announced new lightweight Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 laptops with OLED displays.
