ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAlienware announced a new gaming laptop that can give desktops a run for their money. There has been a steady rise in the demand for good gaming laptops but most of them cannot compete with its desktop counterparts. Laptops in general are compact in size which limits them from getting upgrades. Alienware now has a solution to this problem in the form of the new Area-51m gaming laptop. © Flipboard Dell announced the new laptop at CES 2019 where the company describes it as the most powerful gaming laptop in the world. What's cool about this laptop is that every major component like the CPU, GPU, RAM, Hard Drive and even the battery is swappable. This, in essence, makes it more of a desktop PC where you can keep upgrading the hardware. Currently, the laptop has a 17.3-inch 1080p display that has a 60Hz panel, G-Sync support at 60Hz; 144Hz with G-Sync support, 144Hz with Tobii eye tracking; or 144Hz with both of the features. It has a multi-coloured keyboard, an oval LED light and a minimalistic look that's a far cry from traditional aggressive looking gaming laptops. The laptop also weighs only 3.87kg and has narrower bezels as compared to previous models. © YouTube In terms of specifications, the Area-51m is powered by Intel's 8th Gen i7-8700 or 9th Gen i7-9700K, or i9-9900K. These CPUs are considered to be the one the best for gaming that will serve the purpose well over other gaming laptops in the market. The laptop also comes with a Graphics Form Factor (DGFF) GPU slot where users can fit NVIDIA's RTX 20-series cards (up to RTX 2080). For cooling, the laptop uses Cryo-Tech 2.0 technology. © Dell The GPU can be overclocked on the Area-51m as it uses a maxed out version of the RTX 2080 and can deliver frame rates within around 5 to 10 percent of a desktop gaming PC. The laptop also runs Intel's desktop Z390 chipset where users can put up to a 1TB 2.5-inch hybrid drive and up to two 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSDs. Due to the awesome specifications under the hood, the laptop comes with an expensive price tag and costs around $2,549 (Approx Rs 1,77,000). The laptop will be available from January 29th in the US and an Indian launch date can be expected soon.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAlienware announced that the latest versions of their popular Aurora and Area-51 desktops are to come with updated specifications and Nvidia's new graphics cards. The two desktop PCs will be equipped with Nvidia's GeForce RTX graphics cards and are expected to be based on Intel's Z370 and X299 platforms as well as current generation CPU processors. © Alienware The PCs will come with three configurations when it comes to graphics cards i.e. the GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti GPUs. The pricing of the two mid-tower desktops is not going to be a cheap affair as the Aurora systems will start at $1900 and will cost more with Nvidia's new graphics cards. The Aurora gaming desktop has been designed keeping immersive VR experiences in mind and is currently the training PC for Team Liquid. For gamers looking for a mid-tower desktop, the new Alienware Aurora is ready for current Oculus VR or HTC/VIVE requirements and can also support higher performance configurations for the near future's more demanding VR, as well as 4K gaming and even up to 12K gaming with its highest-end graphics options. Gamers can choose from a wide variety of upgradability options, spanning many performance and budgetary considerations. © Alienware Features of the Alienware Aurora desktop PC include : – Supports five storage drives + one ODD – Supports Intel Optane memory technology – Killer Gigabit Ethernet hardware and software – 11ac wireless technology on all configurations – Whisper-quiet operation – All-parts upgradeable. Includes intelligent cable and Wi-Fi antenna, routing © Alienware The Area 51 desktop is based on Intel's HEDT processors with up to 18 cores. It can be outfitted with up to two Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti graphics cards. Area 51 is Dell's flagship desktop so it is expected to cost even more than the Aurora. © Alienware The cheapest one will cost $5000 and is equipped with Intel's i9-7980XE CPU and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 GPU. With the addition of the new RTX graphic cards, we can expect the price to go even higher and become even more powerful when it comes to processing graphics. Dell says the refreshed systems will be able to tackle 8K and 12K gaming, which in our opinion is a bit of an overkill.
