Whether you're a Team Green or Team Red player, Dell has the latest Alienware update for you. The company offers options for the latest, highest performing silicon from AMD, Intel and Nvidia under the hood of its iconic Aurora design. The company is expanding its displays to support gamers who need a fast, tear-free screen.
The latest Alienware Aurora R11 now ships with Nvidia's second generation of ray-traced graphics cards, while the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 is included in the latest processors from AMD. Both configurations keep Dell's Star Wars Stormtrooper-inspired black and white design, adding a bit of personality to these gaming desktops amid a sea of glass and steel boxes.
The star of the show is the Aurora R11, which is equipped with the 10th generation Core i9-10900KF processor from Intel and the GeForce RTX 3080 flagship GPU from Nvidia, as well as the RTX 3090 with a "custom" design that is designed for a better airflow and better cooling is optimized. according to Alienware.
The thermal design of the system consists of four 10 mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapor chambers. The graphics card has two axial fans with positive rear pressure relief. If you choose Nvidia's BFGPU, formerly known as the RTX 3090, Dell's custom card design uses a 2.5x PCI card slot design instead of the triple slot form factor of Nvidia's Founders Edition GPU. The move towards a compact custom design is similar to what HP took with its Omen desktop. Alienware claims that its cards are shorter and use an 8-pin PCIe connector for power.
The Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition can be configured with an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor with up to 16 cores. The latest update is now complemented by Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3090 graphics on the GPU side. Both the Aurora R11 and Ryzen R10 are available today.
Alienware is capitalized on fast displays
As a complement to the new Aurora desktop, Alienware is a top priority with its monitor update. This year, the company increased the size of its curved gaming display from 34 inches to 38 inches. The Alienware 38 Gaming Monitor AW3821DW has a 37.5-inch IPS nano color field with WQHD + resolution, supports G-Sync and VESA DisplayHDR 600 and a fast response time of 1 ms from gray to gray. Although the panel is designed for gaming, it can also be used in professional environments as the Alienware 38 Gaming Monitor supports 95% of the DCI-P3 color space. Due to its advanced features, the Alienware 38 costs a whopping $ 1,899 at launch.
If your craze is toward flatter screens, the Alienware 27 Gaming Monitor offers many of the same features as the curved display, but adds a fast 240Hz refresh rate to the QHD field of resolution. For gamers who need an even faster panel, the Alienware 25 gaming monitor is an FHD screen that, together with Nvidia's Reflex Latency Analyzer, supports a refresh rate of 360 Hz so that gamers can detect whether there is latency from peripherals such as a keyboard or Mouse goes out.
The Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor is $ 899 and the Alienware 27 Gaming Monitor is $ 1,099. All three gaming monitors will be available worldwide from November.
