Alienware’s set of gaming products for the fall includes the newly designed Alienware Aurora mid-tower desktop, three mice and two keyboards, as well as a number of new Alienware and Dell gaming monitors. The company showed the gear at the Gamescom 2019 fan event in Cologne, Germany.
For its 10th anniversary, the Alienware Arena has a fresh design, an enhanced mobile experience, and more ways to better engage with the gaming community.
“For decades, Dell and Alienware have been trailblazers in the PC gaming industry,” said Ray Wah, the senior vice president at Dell, in a statement. “We’re introducing a complete PC gaming ecosystem, with industry firsts, cutting-edge designs and exceptional performance that will keep players ahead of the competition.”
Earlier this year at CES, Alienware began rolling out a new “design identity,” Alienware’s Legend industrial design, which was a departure from its current look and the sea of sameness in the industry.
The new Alienware Aurora uses Intel’s latest 9th Gen Core Processors and Nvidia GeForce graphic cards. The system will debut today in the U.S. for $970.
Dell is also introducing its G series Dell G5 desktop for PC gamers on a budget. It uses up to Intel i9 K-Series CPUs and VR-capable Nvidia GeForce GTX and RTXor AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphic cards for 1440p gaming experiences. The U.S. availability starts today at $630.
55-inch OLED monitor
The Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor AW5520QF is the first 55-inch OLED monitor for gaming. It has a 120Hz variable refresh rate, response time of 0.5 millisecond (gray-to-gray), and low input latency so images get to the screen much faster.
It has 98.5% DCI-P3 color coverage that lets gamers experience the colors as designed. The sharp 4k UHD resolution allows for either sitting up close for intense gaming, or farther away with a gamepad, for a more casual experience.
And it has AMD Radeon FreeSync technology to minimize graphic distortions such as tearing, stuttering and artifacts for smooth and steady imagery. You can customize the gaming experience with AlienFX lighting, gaming-centric onscreen display (OSD) and a remote control whether having the monitor placed on the gaming desk or mounted on the wall.
Built-in speakers are tuned with Waves MaxxAudio for audio accuracy and clarity. U.S. availability starts on September 30 for the low, low price of $4,000.
