Alienware, a brand name well known around the world, especially among the gaming community, marks a milestone in their 20th anniversary and celebrating it with a big bang. Alienware, a leading pioneer in high performance PC gaming systems, introduces its first ever VR-ready notebooks for the gamers.
At the launch event of the Alienware all new gaming notebooks, I witnessed their new Alienware VR-ready notebooks and other Dell products too. In this article, I would touch and share on the Alienware collection of new Alienware gaming notebooks, Alienware Aurora desktop and additional gaming options.
Gamers, pay-it-forward and share this news about the new Alienware 20th anniversary edition VR-ready notebooks!
“Gaming is in a time of renaissance right now; awesome games and development, amazing resolutions and technology, plus the pure excitement around VR experiences – it’s an incredible driving force and it feels similar to the energy that started Alienware 20 years ago,” said Raymond Wah, senior vice president, Consumer Product Marketing, Dell. “These new notebooks are a product of that history and approach, but also of the demands and expectations of gamers today. Being true to both is what Alienware is about and we’re proud to bring these notebooks to gamers.”
Let me share with you key information and details of the new Alienware line up from the press release information –
The new Alienware 17 is the ultimate gaming notebook with an emphasis on screen size, gaming performance and overall immersion. This flagship notebook gains more power with overclocked Intel Core i7 k-series processors and DDR4 memory running up to 2667 Mhz. Newly added support for optional IR Tobii eye-tracking technology adds great accessibility features based on where you’re looking. It allows gamers to fine tune their skills with a new Overwolf app that can replay your gaze pattern so gamers can track where they were looking during gameplay; gamers can then learn from their mistakes and be sure to focus their attention on the best opportunities to crush the competition.
Balancing superior gaming performance with portability, the new mid-size Alienware 15 is for gamers that want the best of both. With more power in a thinner frame, it comes with great graphics options from AMD and NVIDIA, including the stunning, VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. Coming standard with a 15.6” FHD, IPS Anti-Glare, 300-nits display, additional options include FHD 120Hz display with NVIDIA G-Sync for incredibly smooth, synchronized frame rates and UHD IGZO for 4K resolutions.
Alienware Aurora desktop
The Alienware Aurora, launched in June, is a mid-tower desktop with full-scale power and performance. Despite a smaller footprint than the previous Aurora, it boasts even more dedicated graphics and overclocking potential, including the latest generation NVIDIA GeForce cards, for 4K gaming or even up to 12K gaming as a dual-graphics capable desktop. Performance improvements also include the latest Intel CPUs, available with liquid cooling, and overclockable memory available with Kingston Fury X running at a blistering 2400 MHz. The Aurora’s innovation also includes Alienware’s first chassis with tool-less access for easy swapping of GPUs and as many as 3 of the 5 potential storage drives.
Additional Gaming Options
The Alienware Graphics Amplifier is designed to propel your mobile gameplay to warp speed as a plug-in companion to Alienware notebooks; small enough to slide into a standard carry case, yet powerful enough to transform mobile gaming, the Graphics Amp can be your quickest ticket to 4k gaming and beyond.
Great for adding to your gaming experience, Dell offers one of the best monitors in the world. The new Dell 27 Monitor (S2717DG) is specially designed for gaming. The monitor is engineered to provide an uncompromising gaming experience with sharp and undistorted moving images, thanks to NVIDIA® G-SYNC™technology and the refresh rate of 144Hz, while its swift 1ms response rate offers virtually no input lag.
