Alienware X51 Desktop

Alienware X51 DesktopThe Alienware X51 is a fan favorite; its compact size, massive performance and unique customization options make it the most popular Alienware system for gaming events and tournaments around the world. To solidify its place in the hearts of gamers, for the first time the X51 will offer a custom liquid cooling solution, as well as support for the Alienware Graphics Amplifier. Fitting into the same small form factor, the unique CPU cooling solution reduces noise output and can push the latest 6th-gen Intel Core i5K and i7K unlocked processors to peak performance. Gamers that want to go beyond the X51’s impressive Nvidia GTX 960 graphics can now enjoy 4k gaming when connected to the Graphics Amplifier and a 4k display (both sold separately), supporting discrete GPUs options including the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X. Memory upgrades include support for DDR4 memory, new M.2 PCIe SSDs for increased bandwidth up to 4GB/s, and USB 3.1 ports that can drastically improve throughput when attaching select devices. Now with Windows 10, the latest Alienware X51 can power more realistic graphics and smooth gameplay with DirectX 12.

Alienware 13, 15 and 17 Notebooks

Alienware 13, 15 and 17 Notebooks

The new Alienware notebooks offer over 20 updates and upgrades, strategically implemented to give gamers what they need for the best gaming experience. Key improvements include patent-pending Dynamic Overclocking capabilities that constantly monitor temperature thresholds to ensure maximum CPU performance. Each updated notebook includes USB Type-C ports for USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3 technology support, plus PCIe SSD technology for significant 4GB/s throughput to ensure games, media and applications load fast. For uncompromised connectivity, Alienware implemented Killer Wireless-AC 1535 and Killer E2400 High-Performance Gigabit Ethernet controllers for improved speed and reliability while playing online games, streaming your game, or enjoying online HD video. All of these notebooks will also ship Windows 10, as well as support Windows 8.1. All Alienware laptops can extend to UltraHD 4k gaming when connected to an Alienware Graphics Amplifier featuring a 4k capable graphics card and an optional 4k display.

Among the unique options offered in the updated portfolio, the Alienware 17 offers an optional Ultra 4k display with the latest IGZO technology for higher quality images and lower power requirements. The same IGZO technology is available in the new optional touch QHD+ resolution panel for the Alienware 13, which can now deliver longer battery life with the available 62WHr battery. The Alienware 15 is first to market and the only notebook configurable with the new AMD Radeon R9 M395X graphics.

Alienware 18

Alienware 18Alienware’s most powerful notebook ever is back. The Alienware 18 has returned with its brilliant 18 inch display, on-board dual graphics options, plus an overclocked and upgradeable CPU. For hardcore notebook gaming, the Alienware 18 stands alone as one of the most powerful solutions available.

“This latest wave of products was inspired by our customers’ continued demand for more performance and innovation,” said Frank Azor, Co-founder and General Manager, Alienware. “The new liquid cooling system, extending Graphics Amplifier support, incorporating the latest component technology, and the Special Edition Alienware 18 are just the latest developments from nearly two decades of commitment to gamers and their needs.”
