Dell Technologies has announced Alienware’s latest X-series portfolio which boasts of an advanced cooling technology and the latest design. The new Alienware X-series are packed with the latest and fastest processors and hardware, delivering an exceptional performance in top gaming titles, and also, in any task the user performs.
Let’s get right into the computers’ specifications. The Alienware x15 and x17, which are also the brand’s thinnest 15-inch and 17-inch gaming laptops, are powered by the 11th gen Intel Core i9H-series and the i9K CPU, respectively. They are also equipped with up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs.
These gaming laptops feature Alienware’s Cryo-Tech cooling technology which introduces Element 31, an exclusive thermal interface material (TIM) derived from Encapsulated Gallium-Silicone liquid metal compound. This material is situated between the CPU and its thermal elements in order the disperse heath and alleviate spikes in core temperatures. The internal thermal resistance, through this tech, is improved by 25% when compared to the Alienware m15 R4. Long hours of gameplay call for better performance which is also supported by the HyperEfficient Volatage Regulation.
The addition of the Alienware Quad Fan – which blows air efficiently through the system, chassis, and internal hotspots – and Alienware’s patent-pending Smart Fan control which speeds up or slows down to deliver optimum cooling, further enhances the system’s heat dispersion technology.
Both, the x15 and the x17, come with a dedicated 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD and while the x15 comes with the option to choose between a 16 or 32GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM, the x17 comes with a 32GB DDR4 XMP 3466MHz RAM.
The x15, as the name suggests, is equipped with 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080). The x17, on the other hand, features a 17.3″ FHD (1920 x 1080) screen. The specs of screens of both computers are 360Hz 1ms and come with with ComfortView Plus, NVIDIA G-SYNC and Advanced Optimus; and also feature 300-nits brightness and 100% sRGB color gamut.
With respect to the GPUs, the x15 offers the options of RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 (all 8GB GDDR6) while the x17 offers the options of RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 and RTX 3080 16GB GDDR6.
The Alienware X-series also comes with the ‘Thermal Control Circuit offset’ (TCC offset) which lets gamers set a threshold limit for CPU temperature, thus, assuring that the system CPU temperature will remain within the defined range.
These laptops also come with 5 specifically tailored power states:
- Full Speed (max power)
- Performance mode (graphics priority)
- Balanced mode (balanced CPU/GPU)
- Battery saver (low temperature priority)
- Quiet Mode (acoustics priority)
The Alienware X-series computers come with a CHERRY MX keyboard with a 3.5mm ultra-low-profile design with German stainless-steel mechanical components. They also come with a Windows Hello IR camera for facial biometric logins. Additionally, the laptops come with the evolved AlienFX stadium lighting which consists of up to 100 micro-LEDs on the X17 (90 on the x15) and can be utilised as an independent and customisable lighting zone by gamers through the Alienware Command Center.
The Alienware X-series comes with a 240W power adapter and it comes with sustainable packaging made from 92% recycled or renewable materials. The X-series comes in the Lunar Light colour with high endurance clear coat and silky smooth finish.
- The Alienware x15 is available at a starting price of INR 2,40,990
- The Alienware x17 is available at a starting price of INR 290,990
