Alienware and its parent company, Dell has announced their latest gaming laptop and desktop lineup. This includes six new laptops and a bolstered Alienware Aurora R15 gaming desktop.
Alienware m18: Performance Juggernaut
The Alienware m18 features customisation options that span the gamut of new CPU and GPU technology. This includes up-to 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processors and the full stack of next-gen NVIDIA GeForce RTX Laptop GPUs, plus next-gen AMD Ryzen Processors and Radeon Graphics for mobile.
Most notable thermal improvements made to the new Alienware m18 are:
- Element 31 thermal interface material is now used on both the CPU and the GPU.
- Vapor chamber now covers the GPU and CPU, helping to increase thermal capacity by 35%.
- Seven heat pipes (up from four on m17) to move thermal energy into expanded copper fins, which equates to a >114% surface area increase.
- Quad fans with ultra-thin fan blades increase airflow by 25%.
For gamers seeking a slightly more compact powerhouse, the m16 provides many of the same technologies, ergonomics, design qualities and experiential benefits as the m18, in a smaller form factor.
Brand New Alienware x16
The new Alienware x16 is Alienware’s first 16” gaming laptop since 2004. Sporting more performance, a taller 16:10 display and an improved six-speaker design, the new x16 bests the current x17 in almost every way and does so in a sleeker and more robust full-metal chassis.
The x14 gaming laptop, was first introduced last year at CES 2022, and now the refreshed x14 R2 sports a new display panel that delivers more visual real estate and heightens resolution with 97% more pixels than before. Gamers can also charge more ways than one with the included Type-C USB charging.
G Series Unveils New Design
Dell’s new G16 and G15 now features youthful and fun aesthetics with performance to match. Both feature Dell’s G-mode key, exclusive gaming function macro keys, and toggle audio keys to enhance the player experience. The G15 offers one-zone and four-zone RGB keyboard options with numpad, while G16 offers one-zone RGB and Cherry MX keyboard options.
For the first time ever, the G Series receives Alienware-inspired Vapor Chamber Cooling and Element 31 thermal interface.
Alienware Aurora R15
Alienware’s flagship Aurora R15 is designed with expressive curves and an iconic, sculpted shape that houses powerful performance. Originally configured with 13th Gen Intel Core K-Series processors, the latest Aurora now offers AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series Processors and Intel 13th Gen 65W Desktop processor options. Later, Alienware will also be introducing AMD Radeon™ RX 7000 Series graphics options.
