Dell and its Alienware unit have introduced new gaming laptops and desktops with faster processors and upgraded cooling.
Chief among them is an updated edition of Alienware’s Area-51m laptop. Equipped with 10th Gen Intel Core S-series processors running 20 threads, the 17-inch device is the first Alienware notebook with 10 cores.
In addition to a range of NVIDIA GeForce GTX and RTX graphics options, the system now supports AMD Radeon RX graphics as well. Memory options include up to 64 GB of dual channel DDR4 at 2933MHz and up to 32 GB of dual channel DDR4 XMP at 3200MHz. SKUs are available with a 60Hz UHD (3840 x 2160) display or FHD displays with up to a 300Hz refresh rate.
To keep the heat produced by those resources under control, the revised Area-51m comes with Alienware’s new Cryo-Tech cooling technology, which employs a honeycomb air intake panel above the keyboard, larger fan blades, and elevated feet to increase airflow.
The product is also the first from Alienware to feature vapor chamber cooling. A “HyperEfficient Voltage Regulation” feature on select models is designed to maintain consistent power levels.
Set to ship on June 9th, the new Area-51m will list at $3,049.99 and up.
Also new from Alienware this week are the 15-inch M15 and 17-inch M17 gaming laptops. Designed to be slim but powerful, the two products are 19.5mm and 20.5mm thin, respectively, at their highest point.
Both devices feature up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory and 10th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors, including an i9-10980HK chip that’s unlocked for overclocking. Graphics are supplied by an AMD Radeon RX 5500M card and various NVIDIA GeForce GTX and RTX cards, including a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Max Performance option.
The revised Alienware M15 and M17 both arrive on May 21st with a starting price of $1,499.99 for the smaller unit and $1,549.99 for the larger one.
Available now, meanwhile, is an upgraded Alienware Aurora gaming desktop. Optimized for esports, the new model is the first to offer a liquid cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card that, according to Dell, reduces temperatures by up to 19.5% and noise by up to 69.2%. Other SKUs feature an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT card, an AMD Radeon VII card, or one of numerous NVIDIA GeForce GTX and RTX cards.
Updated Aurora models are shipping now for $1,129.99 and up. Additional configurations selling for $879.99 and up become available on May 28th.
