The new Alienware x15 and x17 are the brand’s thinnest gaming laptop yet, running on the latest 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs (up to 3080).
The duo touts a host of patent-pending cooling technologies including Alienware Cryo-Tech cooling technology, Alienware Quad Fan, Smart Fan control technology, and more. The new x15 and x17 offers max graphics power of 110W and 165W, respectively.
Other notables include:
• Thermal Control Circuit offset (TCC offset) for setting a “cruise control” limit to the CPU temperature • 5 Tailored Power States let you choose how you want to use the device (for examples, Full Speed for max power, or performance mode for graphics priority, et cetera) • Option for Cherry MX keyboard with a 3.5 mm ultra-low profile design (only on x17) • DirectX Raytracing • Windows Hello IR camera • ComfortView Plus hardware based low blue light technology • Alienware-branded 240W power adapter • AlienFX stadium lighting featuring up to 100 micro LEDs (or 90 on the x15) independent and programmable lighting zone.
The Alienware x15 is the world’s most powerful sub-16 mm 15-inch gaming laptop (15.9 mm, to be precise), Dell said. The x17, on the other hand, measures just 20.9 mm thin (but not the thinnest 17-incher – Razer Blade Pro 17, introduced earlier this year, is just 19.9 mm).
The Alienware x15 and x17 Gaming Laptops will be available in stateside on June 15 with a starting price of US$1,999.99 and US$2,099, respectively. For those who can hardly wait, you will be glad to know that limited configurations are actually available today.
