Dell Technologies has unveiled details of the latest additions to its Alienware line. The new devices, showcased during CES 2022, range from the new Alienware x14, to the Alienware m15 R7 with Intel processors, gaming monitors and headset to amp up portability and performance for gamers.
Make your moves while on the move
Dell’s thinnest laptop to date, the Alienware x14, is made possible through a new patent-pending hinge design, which allows this compact gaming laptop to sport a suite of Alienware Cryo-Tech cooling technology which optimizes thermal performance, along with the largest Whr battery capacity on a 14” gaming laptop capable of over 11 hours of HD video playback.
The Alienware x14 is the first 14” laptop supporting NVIDIA’s Advanced Optimus and G-SYNC technologies – so battery life is optimized even during immersive gaming sessions. The Alienware x14 is also the first Alienware laptop to use Type-C ports exclusively as charging ports. Under the hood, you can find the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors and our exclusive thermal interface material, Element 31, in addition to Intel® Arc™ Graphics or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU with 7-phase voltage regulation.
For those who desire bigger displays but the same high portability, Dell is also unveiling upgrades to the improved Alienware x15 R2 and Alienware x17 R2, which includes a completely new set of graphics options from NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 30 Series, 12th Gen Intel Core processors, faster memory and AlienFX stadium lighting.
For extreme gaming performance that delivers a competitive edge, Alienware m17 R5 blasts past the competition as the most powerful 17-inch AMD Advantage™ gaming laptop in the world. With a whole lot of AMD – AMD Ryzen™ 6000 Series processors, AMD Radeon™ RX graphics, AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology, AMD SmartShift MAX, AMD Smart Access Memory™ technology, and the first available laptop to feature AMD SmartAccess Graphics – our all-new m17 delivers an incredible combination of gaming technologies spanning hardware and software that create a gaming experience greater than the sum of its parts. All of this is cured with Alienware Cryo-tech cooling technology including graphics vapour chamber cooling to sustain high-performance through long marathon gaming sessions.
Dell is also offering the mid-size Alienware m15 R7, a 15-inch model available with either AMD Ryzen™processors or 12th Gen Intel Core H-series processors now supporting the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-Series GPUs.
Kick your senses into high gear
Alongside these devices, Dell is bringing the gaming experience to a whole new level with its new peripherals, designed for out-of-this-world viewing experiences, top-notch sound quality, customisable features and ergonomics.
For gamers who play racing, simulation or action-adventure games, or Twitch streamers and content developers, Dell has introduced the Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor (AW3423DW), a CES Innovation Award Honoree. This monitor offers stunning colour performance and high luminance with crystal-clear visuals for an immersive gaming experience.
But what exactly is Quantum Dot OLED (QD-OLED) technology? In its simplest form, a QD-OLED display combines the impressive picture qualities of OLED with Quantum Dot technology to deliver a vibrant, life-like colour performance including consistent colour uniformity, wide colour coverage, incredible brightness and OLED reliability with a 3-year limited hardware warranty that covers OLED burn-in.
Meanwhile, the Alienware Tri-Mode Wireless Gaming Headset (AW920H), also a CES Innovation Award Honoree, can keep users playing comfortably. Inheriting the Legend 2.0 design, it is Dell’s most comfy headset with a slimmer silhouette, leatherette covering and soft memory foam earcups. Embedded with active noise cancelling, immersive multidimensional audio integrated touch controls and versatile device connectivity, this headset is perfect for PC and mobile gaming as well as music and entertainment. In addition, just 15 minutes of fast-charge renders 6 hours of use and a full charge enables up to 55 hours of gameplay.
Players can also pick up the Alienware Tri-Mode Wireless Gaming Mouse (AW720M). Weight-optimized at just 89g, it has a new slimmer design, 3D-sculpted ambidextrous thumb grips and iconic AlienFX RGB lighting. Its next-gen, 26,000 DPI optical sensor and magnetic force keyplates ensure the high-level performance expected from a gaming mouse.
Commenting on the latest releases, Vivian Lien, Vice President of Alienware and Dell Gaming, said: “No matter if you’re into hyper-realistic world-building or heart-pounding monster-slaying, incredible experiences are woven into Alienware’s DNA. This past year, for the benefit of gamers both casual and hardcore, we took that ethos to exhilarating new heights!
As players multiply in every region of the world and we gear up for hotly anticipated new game releases in 2022, the hype has never been stronger with development and innovation to match – including major updates across our Alienware mobility family and peripheral ecosystem. From the world’s thinnest 14” gaming laptop; to the most powerful 17-inch AMD Advantage gaming laptop out there; to the world’s first Quantum Dot OLED gaming monitor, each new device is packed with innovations.”
