Dell’s Alienware gaming model introduced a brand new sequence of gaming laptops. The ‘X-Series’ is available in two sizes and Alienware says they’re its thinnest gaming laptops but.
There’s the 15-inch Alienware x15 and 17-inch Alienware x17, each of which boast patent-pending cooling tech to assist squeeze as a lot efficiency as they may right into a thinner body. Alienware says the x15 measures in at 15.9mm, whereas the x17 sits at 20.9mm.
Alienware makes some large claims concerning the thermals within the X-Series laptops, which the corporate says contains 5 patent-pending engineering strategies unique to Alienware. The firm calls the expertise the “next evolution” of its ‘Cryo-Tech’ cooling, that includes ‘Element 31,’ a thermal interface materials constructed from encapsulated gallium-silicone liquid metallic (though it’s solely accessible on sure methods with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or 3080 GPUs).
Alienware makes use of Element 31 between the CPU and its thermal parts to raised disperse warmth and enhance efficiency. The firm claims the X-Series laptops ship as much as a 25 % enchancment in thermal resistance benefit due to Element 31. Of course, it’ll be fascinating to see how these claims maintain up in real-world testing — from Alienware’s description, it sounds loads like Element 31 is a flowery kind of thermal paste. While vital in serving to switch warmth away from the CPU and into the cooling elements, you continue to want highly effective cooling elements to maintain temperatures down.
Thankfully, Alienware thought of that facet as properly. The firm included a ‘Quad Fan’ design into the X-Series laptops that may extra effectively blow air by means of the system to maintain it cool. Further, Alienware developed ‘Smart Fan’ tech that makes use of AI to individually management every fan as wanted to assist maintain the entire system working at decrease temperatures with out making as a lot noise.
The Alienware X-Series laptops embody Intel’s eleventh Gen Core H-Series cellular processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series laptop computer GPUs. When it involves the show, clients can select from a variety of choices together with a FHD 360Hz panel or a 4K UHD display screen with HDR400. For the mechanical keyboard followers on the market, the Alienware x17 can ship with a particular Cherry MX choice sporting a low-profile design.
Overall, the laptops appear fairly spectacular and, if the cooling methods carry out in addition to Alienware claims, the X-Series could possibly be actually stable gaming laptops. Some X-Series configurations can be accessible beginning June 1st, with full availability beginning June fifteenth within the U.S. Alienware hasn’t supplied any Canadian particulars but. The Alienware x15 begins at $1,999.99 USD (roughly $2,414.39 CAD) whereas the x17 begins at $2,099.99 USD (about $2,535.11 CAD).
