Alienware continues its mission to create premier gaming experiences with a triple release of new devices, including a revamped Aurora R15 Gaming Desktop, a compact and feature-rich Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard, and their second QD-OLED Gaming Monitor positioned at a lower price point.
The new Alienware Aurora R15 desktop sees a significant performance boost, thanks to the latest 13th Gen Intel Core processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs and an armada of system refinements.
To achieve higher thermal efficiency and help ensure peak performance, they’ve equipped the following advancements with all 13th Gen Intel Core K-Series configurations:
- 240mm liquid cooling, with the option to upgrade to 240mm Cryo-tech liquid cooling.
- Five 120mm fans: a 240mm LC unit serving as two exhaust fans up top, one more exhaust fan in the rear, and two intake fans up in front.
- Hexagonal side-venting to generate additional airflow.
- 12-phase, processor, voltage regulation helps enable long-lasting peak performance.
- Voltage regulator heatsinks on the motherboard help ensure maximum cooling.
- 80 Plus Platinum-rated power supply, delivering high levels of power efficiency
- Increased memory speed to DDR5 4800MHz (or MT/s).
- Defined memory architecture enables the highest speed UDIMM for faster performance.
With these advancements, we’re delivering 58% more power to the processor, obtaining double digit performance improvements and simultaneously running the CPU up to 5˚ Celsius cooler. Additionally, their new thermal strategy increases system airflow by up to 19%, which is up to 66% quieter in CPU intensive tasks and 9% quieter in GPU intensive tasks.
The Aurora R15 now also includes up to a 1350W power supply (up from 1000W in the previous generation), designed to support NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card.
Speaking of the graphics card, they repositioned the graphics slot to enable larger card designs (up to triple wide cards). In addition to offering NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series and 30 Series GPUs, Aurora R15 will also be configurable with AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics which pair nicely with our first QD-OLED AMD FreeSync monitor.
Alienware’s new space-saving Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard (AW420K) helps you win back valuable desktop real estate while staying at the top of your game. Whether you’re curating a minimal desk setup or looking for more room to manoeuvre your mouse, this smaller form factor design drops the number pad to maximise space and free up more area for fast-action swipes. Promoting a clean and organised gaming environment, the AW420K makes cable management simple and versatile. With a cable routing layout etched into the underside of the keyboard, you can direct the connection cable left, right, or down the centre to keep it out of the way and streamline your gaming setup.
Another benefit to this compact keyboard is that it’s more travel friendly than its full-size siblings.
When it’s time to hit the road and head to a tournament or friend’s house, the small footprint (14.46”W x 5.81”L) makes it possible to transport in your Alienware Horizon Travel Backpack or other compatible travel cases. When packing up, just remove the USB paracord cable for easier storage. And since changing environments can expose your keyboard to unwanted particles, they have mounted the key switches to the smooth metal top plate to help limit the spaces where dust and crumbs can hide and make cleaning simple and quick.
Outfitted with a robust suite of technology, the AW420K delivers a typing experience that is responsive, consistent, and long-lasting. Industry-leading CHERRY MX Red switches provide incredible reliability and durability with their gold-based cross-point contact system. The thick gold layer makes the electrical contact enclosure self-cleaning and gives the key switch permanent protection against corrosion, guaranteeing more than 100 million actuations without loss of quality.
In addition, double-shot PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) keycaps feature two layers of plastic moulded together for reliable durability with key legends moulded into the caps for dependable rigidity and wear resistance.
But wait, there’s more!
Hot off unveiling the world’s first QD-OLED gaming monitor earlier this year, they are continuing to expand on their QD-OLED offerings with the introduction of a new Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor (AW3423DWF), delivering a premier and immersive gaming experience.
For those seeking increased realism the Alienware 34” Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor delivers stunning picture quality and ultra-smooth frame rates that transform your entire gaming experience.
Just like the previously launched AW3423DW model, this new monitor offers the same impressive picture qualities of Quantum Dot-OLED technology including consistent colour uniformity, wide colour coverage, deep black tones and incredible brightness. With WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution and blazing-fast 0.1ms GtG response time, gamers can stay ahead of the competition without stuttering, input lag or motion blur while playing fast-paced games. It also supports the latest generation of consoles with VRR up to 120Hz.
Availability of all of these new Alienware products is to be announced.
