The new devices are none other than the new Alienware 17, 15 and 13, alongside the Alienware Aurora Desktop which was launched in June earlier this year. On top of featuring new designs, the devices all sport the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series mobile graphics, powered by 6th gen Intel Core i processors and are capable of handling VR straight out of the box.
With emphasis on screen size, the Alienware 17 sports a 6th gen Intel Core i7 processor alongside DDR 4 memory, and optional Tobii eye tracking tech which tracks where you’re looking to make things more accessible. It also features the AlienFX lighting zones which interacts with Tobii to change the LED system lighting based on where you’re looking.
The Alienware 15 is the brand’s mid-sized, 15.1″ offering for users who want something slimmer but with similar graphical prowess to its larger sibling. You have GPU options from both AMD and NVIDIA, including the VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. You can even get options with NVIDIA G-Sync for smooth synchronised framerates or 4K resolution.
As for the Alienware 13, it might be the smallest but it essentially is one of the smallest VR-ready machines out there. Like its kin, you also get the customiseable LEDs with up to eight unique programmable lighting zones.
Last but not least is Alienware’s Aurora gaming rig. It may be just a mid-tower desktop in size, but it still packs a punch despite being smaller than the previous gen Aurora desktop. Among its upgrades are liquid cooling, overclockable memory and the brand’s first chassis that can be accessed sans tools so you can easily swap out your components.
