Alienware Squeezes RX 470 into a Laptop

Alienware, Dell’s gaming computer division, has revealed its new range of laptops, which are 25% thinner and pack in either a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or a full-size AMD Radeon RX 470 graphics card, making them the first of their kind to support virtual reality gaming. The Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 systems – named for their screen size, which is 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch, respectively – boast up to 32GB of 2,667MHz DDR4 RAM, a TactX keyboard with sharp response and N-Key rollover, and 1080p displays with optional NVIDIA G-Sync technology.

“The new Alienware 17 is the ultimate gaming notebook with an emphasis on screen size, gaming performance and overall immersion,” according to Dell. “This flagship notebook gains more power with overclocked Intel Core i7 k-series processors and DDR4 memory running up to 2667 Mhz.”

“Newly added support for optional IR Tobii eye-tracking technology adds great accessibility features based on where you’re looking. It allows gamers to fine tune their skills with a new Overwolf app that can replay your gaze pattern so gamers can track where they were looking during gameplay; gamers can then learn from their mistakes and be sure to focus their attention on the best opportunities to crush the competition.”

“Balancing superior gaming performance with portability, the new mid-size Alienware 15 is for gamers that want the best of both,” Dell says. “With more power in a thinner frame, it comes with great graphics options from AMD and NVIDIA, including the stunning, VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.”

“Coming standard with a 15.6” FHD, IPS Anti-Glare, 300-nits display, additional options include FHD 120Hz display with NVIDIA G-Sync for incredibly smooth, synchronized frame rates and UHD IGZO for 4k resolutions. Built so gamers can be on the go, its exceptional battery life keeps it going with a 68 watt-hour lithium ion battery and an optional 99 watt-hour battery to enable extended gameplay when away from a plug.”

Both the Alienware 15 and 17 come with the option of an RX 470. AMD revealed:

“Marking another milestone in our valued collaboration with Alienware, they have just made an exciting announcement by unveiling their latest line of premium gaming laptops: the new Alienware 15 and new Alienware 17, both available with the future-proof1 Radeon™ RX 470 graphics card. This isn’t a mobile variant; this is the full-powered RX 470 featuring our latest Polaris GPU architecture. Expect it to unleash uncompromising, ultra-quality 1080p visuals in your favorite games.”

The Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 gaming laptops are available for pre-order from 30th September and will be released in November.
