The diehards get game-dominating audiophile detail with the Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset.

The Controllers allow users total control with haptic feedback, thumb stick and buttons fully tracked by sensors in the headset.
Dell technology helps bring visual effects to life
This exciting collaboration extends behind the camera, where Dell hardware plays a vital role in creating the visual effects in the film. Marvel Studios enlisted VFX vendors, several of which utilised a breadth of Dell technologies, including Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, and Dell Precision workstations, as the core infrastructure to provide the immense computing power and storage capacity necessary for visual effects designers to bring the movie’s characters and places to life.
Among others, artists at the VFX studio DNEG, who worked on Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” rely on Dell Precision workstations for front-end operations. Dell’s Precision line is a leader in the industry, allowing creators to edit and create in new storytelling methods. In the company’s Vancouver studio alone, more than 300 Dell Precision workstations are used to create compelling effects. Imagine an adrenaline-fueled car chase through San Francisco, moments of Ant-Man and The Wasp shrinking, or an intricate lab scene featuring Ghost phasing in and out of walls – technologies from Dell help make these ideas reality.
The full list of Dell technology DNEG leveraged to create the film includes:
- Dell Precision 7910 workstations
- Dell EMC PowerEdge R630 rack servers with MD3460 RAIDs
- Dell EMC PowerEdge M1000e Blade Server Enclosures
- Hundreds of Dell monitors
