Last year, Alienware began offering its popular gaming desktops and laptops with AMD Ryzen processors. It was a major change for the company, and it was likely inspired by the stellar multi-threaded performance (and reasonable cost) of AMD chips. Now, Alienware is launching a flurry of new AMD-powered machines to cover nearly all budgets.
The new Alienware Ryzen Edition R14 ($2,949) is the highlight of this collection. Built in collaboration with AMD, this machine features the highest multi-threaded performance of any Alienware PC, plus AMD 3D V-Cache tech for stable frame rates and the super cool (literally and figuratively) Legend 2.0 chassis.
Top configurations for the Alienware Ryzen Edition R14 use an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor, AMD Radeon RX 6900XT or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics, 4TB of M.2 storage, and Wi-Fi 6. Customers can also order the machine with an advanced liquid cooler and scratch-resistant glass.
There’s also the new 15-inch Alienware m15 R7 laptop ($1,500), which features an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU in its highest configuration. The larger 17-inch Alienware m17 R5 ($1,600) pushes things a bit further, offering additional configurations for the AMD Ryzen 9 6980HX chip and AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT graphics card.
These laptops both pack DDR5 RAM and come with NVIDIA G-Sync displays. Notably, customers can order the Alienware m15 R7 with a QHD display, and the Alienware m17 R5 is available with a UHD display.
And for those who’d like to save a bit of money, Dell is launching the new G15 gaming laptop ($900). It’s not the most impressive machine, but it packs a 15-inch screen, M.2 storage, DDR5 RAM, and more at a reasonable price. The highest configuration of G15 laptop uses an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor and NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti GPU.Continue Reading
