Alienware Amps up Portability, Performance and Peripherals

No matter if you’re into hyper-realistic world-building or heart-pounding monster-slaying, incredible experiences are woven into Alienware’s DNA. This past year, for the benefit of gamers both casual and hardcore, Alienware took that ethos to exhilarating new heights!

In 2021, Alienware unveiled its thinnest gaming laptops yet—the Alienware X-Series—with breakthrough system-level engineering controls to let you play the latest and greatest PC gaming titles anywhere. Alienware has completed an inside-out redesign of the flagship Alienware Aurora desktop, enriching the gaming experience in every way. And as was just announced, Alienware cranked it up even more with the grand introduction of Concept Nyx, a radical skunkworks project from the depths of Alienware’s labs, driven by the vision to allow multiple players in a single household to game on any device, simultaneously, and in high-fidelity.

As players multiply in every region of the world and Alienware gears up for hotly anticipated new game releases in 2022, the hype has never been stronger with development and innovation to match – including major updates across the Alienware mobility family and peripheral ecosystem. From a 14” gaming laptop; to the 17-inch AMD Advantage gaming laptop; to the Quantum Dot OLED gaming monitor, each new device is packed with innovations. 

Moves while on the move 

As a gamer, what’s your top priority? Alienware designed and optimised the M-Series and X-Series for two types of players: those who value raw power above all else (M-Series), and those who prioritise mobility but also require the latest gaming technologies (X-Series). With that in mind, Alienware comes to CES 2022 with the perfect rig for everyone.

Are you a mobile gamer who want excellent portability? Look no further than the new Alienware x14. Alienware’s thinnest laptop to date is made possible through a clever new patent-pending hinge design, which allows a lot to be packed under the hood: from a suite of Alienware Cryo-Tech cooling technology which optimises thermal performance, to the largest Whr battery capacity on a 14” gaming laptop capable of over 11 hours of HD video playback. 

The Alienware x14 supports NVIDIA’s Advanced Optimus and G-SYNC technologies so battery life is optimised even during immersive gaming sessions. The Alienware x14 is also the first Alienware laptop to use Type-C ports exclusively as charging ports. Under the hood, you can find the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors and Dell’s exclusive thermal interface material, Element 31, in addition to Intel® Arc™ Graphics or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU with 7-phase voltage regulation. It truly is a gamer’s lifestyle companion fit for every environment.

For those who desire bigger displays but the same high portability, there are also key upgrades to the improved Alienware x15 R2 and Alienware x17 R2, which includes a completely new set of eye-popping graphics options from NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 30 Series, 12th Gen Intel Core processors, faster memory (now running at up to DDR5 6400Mhz speeds), AlienFX stadium lighting and other great features.

Shifting gear to the M-series gaming laptops – for extreme gaming performance that delivers a competitive edge, the Alienware m17 R5 blasts past the competition. With a whole lot of AMD – AMD Ryzen™ 6000 Series processors, AMD Radeon™ RX graphics, AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology, AMD SmartShift MAX, and AMD Smart Access Memory™ technology,– the all-new m17 delivers an incredible combination of gaming technologies spanning hardware and software that create a gaming experience greater than the sum of its parts. All of this is cured with Alienware Cryo-tech cooling technology including graphics vapour chamber cooling to sustain high-performance through long marathon gaming sessions, whether you’re playing your favourite indie game or the latest high-end AAA title. 

The Alienware m17 is a machine to satisfy your senses: from outstanding graphics across a range of impressive display options supporting lag-free action to the satisfying “deep-click” feel of its highly tactile, optional CherryMX mechanical keyboard. Alienware is also offering the mid-size Alienware m15 R7, a 15-inch model available with either AMD Ryzen™ processors or 12th Gen Intel Core H-series processors now supporting the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-Series GPUs.

Your sight and sound experience just got better. The entire Alienware laptop family is now equipped with Dolby Vision for full-spectrum visuals and immersive spatial audio with and Dolby Atmos. Distinguished by incredible brightness, more vibrant colours, sharper contrast and richer details, along with sounds that move all around you with three-dimensional precision, you’ll always feel like you’re truly inside the game.

Senses into high gear 

Alienware is giving customers the ultimate battle station and bringing the gaming experience to a whole new level with its new peripherals. Designed for out-of-this-world viewing experiences, top-notch sound quality, customisable features and ergonomics – these new peripherals will put gamers at the top of their game.

Let’s start with the world’s first Quantum Dot OLED gaming monitor! For gamers who play racing, simulation or action-adventure games, or Twitch streamers and content developers, Alienware is excited to introduce the Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor (AW3423DW), a CES Innovation Award Honoree. This big, beautiful beast offers stunning colour performance and high luminance with crystal-clear visuals for an immersive gaming experience. 

But what exactly is Quantum Dot OLED (QD-OLED) technology? In its simplest form, a QD-OLED display combines the impressive picture qualities of OLED with Quantum Dot technology to deliver a vibrant, life-like colour performance including consistent colour uniformity, wide colour coverage, incredible brightness and OLED reliability Alienware stands behind with a 3-year limited hardware warranty that covers OLED burn-in. 

Combine this with the sleek, curved 1800R panel that’s accented by the new Legend 2.0 design and you’ve got a true beauty unlike anything else. It doesn’t stop there either: 

  • Designed for lag-free play, its smooth graphics are enabled by fast 0.1ms Gray to Gray response Times, 175Hz (native) refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC® ULTIMATE certification. 
  • For content makers and game developers that need precise colour accuracy, the Creator Mode preset on the display allows you to choose between DCI-P3 (native) and sRGB colour spaces and adjusts gamma levels. 
  • TUV-certified ComfortView Plus reduces harmful blue-light emissions (perfect for marathon gaming sessions) without sacrificing any of the brilliant QD-OLED colours, while the AlienFX lighting on the back of the monitor can be customised to match your aesthetic. 

Alienware Tri-Mode Wireless Gaming Headset (AW920H), also a CES Innovation Award Honoree, can keep you playing comfortably. Inheriting the Legend 2.0 design, it is Alienware’s most comfy headset with a slimmer silhouette, leatherette covering and soft memory foam earcups. Embedded with active noise cancelling, immersive multidimensional audio (powered by Dolby Atmos!), integrated touch controls and versatile device connectivity, this headset is perfect for PC and mobile gaming as well as music and entertainment. And it’d be amiss to not mention this: just 15 minutes of fast charge renders 6 hoursiii of use and a full charge enables up to 55 hours iii of gameplay.

Pick up the Alienware Tri-Mode Wireless Gaming Mouse (AW720M) and you immediately know it feels right. That’s because it’s weight-optimised at 89g, with a new slimmer design, 3D-sculpted ambidextrous thumb grips and iconic AlienFX RGB lighting. Its next-gen, 26,000 DPI optical sensor and magnetic force keyplates ensure the high-level performance you expect from a gaming mouse. 

Kicking things up a notch, this gaming mouse also comes with NVIDIA Reflex system latency measurement technology, meaning that you can start every match knowing your PC is operating at the lowest possible system latency when paired with NVIDIA G-SYNC displays. Not to mention it comes with multiple modes of connectivity and a patent-pending, magnetic, snap-on charger that provides up to 15 hoursiii of gameplay on a 5-minute charge, or up to 140 hours of gaming when fully charged.
