Anyone who is the market for a thin gaming laptop may want to check out the new Alienware X-Series gaming laptops, comprising of Alienware x15 and Alienware X17.
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.
