The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is one of the biggest events in the Tech space each year. We typically see a dizzying array of new products launch during the week of CES; more than we are likely to see in the following few months. Not all products are block-buster standouts though, and some of these technological spectacles inevitably shine brighter than others. After sifting though all the products we saw last week, we've compiled a list of the best products that we got time with at CES 2019. And with that, we'll just dive right in...

Rivet Networks is adding another "world's first" trophy to its showcase with the launch of the Killer E3000. The company claims that this is the first Ethernet controller capable of delivering 2.5 Gbps data speeds for PCs. The Killer E3000 is primarily aimed at enthusiasts, which is why you will see it installed in monster gaming rigs like the Alienware Area-51m that was announced this week at CES. With that being said, Rivet Networks says that the 2.5 Gbps controller will be available in desktop and laptop systems along with motherboards from top component makers. The Killer E3000 takes...

We're suckers for awesome gaming displays, and Dell has an incredibly impressive Alienware 55 OLED Monitor at CES 2019 that measures 55 inches diagonally. That's a lot of screen real estate for a gaming display, and luckily it has the specs and expected performance to make it one of the best new products that we've seen so far at the show. As its name implies, the Alienware 55 OLED Monitor ditches "old school" LCD technology and instead uses a 4K OLED HDR panel with a variable refresh rate up to a relatively lofty 120Hz. From the front, the display features a clean and... Read more...
Dell didn't just set out to build an incredibly fast gaming laptop with its latest Alienware offering -- it wanted to build the world's fastest mobile gaming rig and it has likely succeeded magnificently. Witness the Area-51m, which is a beastly machine that is factory overclocked and designed to handle pretty much any game that you throw its way. More importantly, the Area-51m is immensely upgradable, with customers being able to swap out their GPUs and the onboard CPU. Speaking of the graphics card, the Area-51m can accommodate NVIDIA's new real-time ray-tracing graphics cards, topping out with... Read more...
The gaming laptop market is one of one of the largest and most diverse segments of the PC industry, with systems ranging in price from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Dell's Alienware gaming machines typically lean towards the higher-end of the price spectrum, with premium build quality and strong component configurations, like the Alienware m15 that we're looking at here today. Dell's Alienware gaming division has re-tooled this machine as well, almost from the ground-up, while still preserving its classic Alienware design signature. The new Alienware m15 ranges in price from $1,379.99... Read more...
Gaming laptops are a tough gig for PC OEMs. Most times, they're either beastly heavy and loud machines, or if they're thinner and lighter they either sacrifice performance or battery life, or both. You usually can't have your cake and eat it too, as they say. However, Dell's Alienware division seems to have split the baby nicely, so to speak, with the new 15-inch Alienware m15 gaming notebook. We're just now getting beyond our kicking the tires phase with the machine here at HotHardware, but our full review is inbound in the weeks ahead, hopefully just before the new year. That said, first impressions... Read more...
Alienware's beastly Area-51 gaming desktop is getting a specs upgrade today with the addition of new second-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Alienware began using Ryzen Threadripper last year in the Area-51 when AMD’s HEDT processor lineup was initially launched. This time around, Alienware is providing two additional processor options: the Threadripper 2920X (12 cores, 24 threads) and the Threadripper 2950X (16 cores, 32 threads). For those that prefer to keep the price tag of the Area-51 from ballooning quickly, the first-generation Ryzen Threadripper 1900X... Read more...
Dell has just pulled the wraps off its thinnest Alienware laptop to date: the Alienware m15. Despite its mission to make the Alienware m15 as thin and light as possible, there were no compromises made with respect to performance by Dell's renegade gaming products division.  The notebook measures just 0.83 inches thick and weighs in at a relatively lightweight (for a gaming notebook) 4.78 pounds. In keeping with its model number designation, the Alienware m15 is adorned with a 15.6-inch display that can be had with Full HD (60Hz or 144Hz) or UHD 4K resolution (60Hz) panels. Those displays are... Read more...
