Updates include a gaming laptops that features AMD’s Radeon RX graphics and a 10-core Intel CPU.
Taken from Engadget … Dell’s Alienware has unveiled new m15/m17 gaming laptops, an updated Aurora desktop PC and the latest desktop-class Area-51m laptop, now available with AMD’s Radeon RX graphics and a 10-core Intel CPU. First up is the 17.3-inch Area-51m (above), an upgradeable desktop-class laptop that you might call transportable rather than portable.
It now comes with Intel 10th-generation CPUs, up to the Core i9 10900K 10-core CPU that can be overclocked up to 5.3 GHz. That’s the first Alienware laptop to pack 10 cores, according to Dell. You can also get it with AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB graphics, on top of up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070/2080 Super GPU. To max out your gaming power, it’s also available with a 300 Hz display with Tobii eye-tracking tech or a 4K 17.3-inch display, along with 64GB of RAM and 4TB of Raid 0 storage.
All of those components will run hot, so the Area-51m is equipped with Alienware’s Cryo-Tech cooling, along with new vapor chamber cooling and an efficient 12-phase voltage regulator on select configurations. That’s along with the N-key rollover gaming tech and RGB LED lighting you’d expect on such a machine. You’ll need some muscle to pack this laptop around, as it now tips the scales at over 9 pounds (up to 10.4 pounds). It ain’t cheap either, starting at $3,050 when it launches on June 9, 2020.
If portability counts more than pure power, Alienware has also updated its m15/m17 gaming laptops. They now come with up to 10th-gen Intel i9-10980HK processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q or Radeon RX500M graphics. Other specs include up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, a microSD card reader, Thunderbolt 3 with PD fast charging and new colors.
