Dell Alienware is updating its gaming PCs with new chips from Advanced Micro Devices, Nvidia and Intel for the CES 2021 online technology show.
Alienware is equipping its slim Alienware m15 and Alienware m17 laptops with more powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs and Intel Core processors.
The lineup shows that the competition between AMD, Intel, and Nvidia is still pretty fierce, and certainly shows that AMD has made strides in high-performance gaming computers over the past few years.
R4 generation laptops feature 12-phase graphics voltage regulation for marathon gaming sessions, up to 4 terabytes of memory, and faster memory speeds up to 2933 MHz.
Processor options include the 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10870H as well as other chips. Laptops stay properly cooled thanks to vapor chamber and cryo-cooling in every configuration.
For higher frame rates, the Alienware m17 R4 has an optional 360Hz FHD panel for faster refresh rates and smoother gameplay. It aims to play games like Valorant and Cyberpunk 2077.
Both laptops are available in Lunar Light and Dark Side of the Moon colors with a new matte front panel. You can export graphics to widescreen displays such as the Alienware 55-inch OLED screen using updated HDMI 2.1 cables. Laptops can deliver 4K resolution at 120Hz.
Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 Desktop
Meanwhile, the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 uses the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors with up to 16 cores.
You can also use AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics or Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs.
It features a tool-less chassis that can now support up to 128GB of HyperX Fury DDR4 dual-channel RAM – double the amount of previous generations.
The airflow design uses steam chamber technology to dissipate heat and give players an extra boost in performance.
Available in Lunar Light and Dark Side of the Moon colors.
