Gamescom saw many new games revealed, and the associated hardware introduced to keep up with the high demands imposed from AAA titles. The new introductions are timely as well since Intel’s new processors are ready to handle just about anything you can throw at devices running their chipset. Luckily for consumers, Dell unveiled the new Alienware 15 and 17 that will come with 8th Gen Intel Core i9 K-Series processors, designed for graphic-demanding titles out there.
Using some of the highest quality components available, the Alienware 15 and 17 are built using premium materials such as anodized aluminum, magnesium alloy, steel-reinforcements and copper for stiffness, rigidity, thinness and high-quality feel – all without sacrificing gaming performance. You can also get to internal components easier through a new bottom door mechanism.
With an upgraded Alienware TactX keyboard with per-key RBG LED, Alienware 15 and 17 now support n-key rollover, enabling more than 108-key commands. It’s the only keyboard on a laptop with 2.2mm of key travel and is reinforced with a steel back-plate for rigidity and uniform feedback. Alienware guarantees it to stay functional for up to 10 million keystrokes.
Apart from above, other bells and whistles include lighting combination that reaches phenomenal figure of more than 80 quadrillion combinations via per-key RGB lighting. Improved audio is also present as well as support for desktop graphics cards from NVIDIA or AMD with the optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier. The new Alienware notebooks includes 3 USB 3.0 ports, one of which includes PowerShare technology, another of which uses a Type-C connector for Type-C compatible devices. Meanwhile there is a single Thunderbolt 3 Port (USB Type-C with support for SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps, 40Gbps Thunderbolt, and DisplayPort) present in the new Alienware for maximum expandability potential.
