If you were wondering what happened to, well, wonder no more.
The Notebook Odyssey is available to order starting today for $2,000 (approximately AU$2,910 or £1,570 converted) and features the GeForce RTX 2060 GPU paired with a six-core Intel Core i7 processor. Aside from the updated internal hardware, Samsung redesigned the chassis and cooling, and updated the display as well.
The laptop now has a slimmer all-metal body and a hinge design that raises its 15.6-inch 144Hz 1,920×1,080-pixel display up for more comfortable viewing. The display supports Nvidia G-Sync, too, so you should see less tearing and other artifacts while gaming. And, mixed in among its ports is a USB-C with VirtualLink support for running a VR headset’s power, video and data.
