Dell-Alienware's Aurora gaming desktop PC lineage continues with Intel's latest 9th Gen Core processors on board and a fresh injection of ray-tracing, courtesy of NVIDIA's Turing GPUs. The Alienware Aurora R8 promises richer image quality for ray-tracing supported titles, while continuing to push performance boundaries for a compact gaming PC, with evermore powerful platform hardware and self-contained liquid cooling. RTX equipped configurations can span from an Intel Core i7-9700K paired with a GeForce RTX 2070OC, 16GB of DDR4 2666MHz RAM, and a 128GB SATA SSD + 2TB HDD system for around $2,159, on up to a Core i9-9900K with a GeForce RTX 2080Ti OC (or dual GeForce RTX 2080's), 64GB of HyperX...

The hardware may still be in development, but Intel just landed a major design win nonetheless, one that will reportedly culminate in the world’s first Exascale Supercomputer powered partially by Intel’s upcoming Xe graphics technology. It was just announced that Intel and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will deliver the first supercomputer capable of one exaFLOP of compute performance, or a “quintillion” floating point operations per second. The system, named “Aurora”, is being developed at the DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago. It is being designed for High-Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence applications and will be used... Read more...
The Alienware brand is as venerable a name as any in the gaming space. As Alienware celebrates over twenty years in business, its computers have become instantly recognizable thanks to distinctive, out-of-this-world styling, and science-fiction references. Dell purchased Alienware in 2006 to complement its own competing line of XPS-branded gaming machines. However, Dell has kept a largely hands-off approach, allowing Alienware to grow its own business and continue meeting consumer's expectations. So far, it has served both brands well. Alienware currently maintains three desktop families from the small-form factor Alpha to the monstrous Area-51. The subject of today's alien autopsy: the new Aurora... Read more...
Sometimes, you just have to pull out all the stops, which is essentially what Dell is doing by making its Alienware Aurora gaming desktop available with the option of including an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z GPU. Alienware notes that the Titan Z boasts 5760 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 8 TeraFLOPS of compute power. Of course, there’s plenty of other good stuff available for the Aurora. You can configure a system with an Intel Core i7-4820K (up to 3.9GHz), 8GB (4 x 2GB) of quad-channel DDR3-1600MHz RAM, 2TB 7200rpm HDD, and double-layer 24x CD/DVD burner ODD with a Titan Z for $3,799 (or for a limited time, $3,609.05). And of course, you can opt for more RAM and faster and/or higher-capacity... Read more...

The release of ATI's Radeon HD 5870 graphics card has caused quite a stir in the hardware industry. While enthusiasts scramble to find the coin to upgrade their systems, Alienware has provided an all inclusive option for those in the market for an entire rig, loaded with some of the fastest parts available. Yesterday, Alienware announced the launch of five new configurations, consisting of all new Area 51, Aurora, and M15x gaming systems. Although each option brings something new to the table, we had the chance to check out the Aurora ALX featuring a Core i7 975 processor, X58 microATX motherboard, and two ATI Radeon HD 5870s running in CrossFire mode.

  We know it can be difficult to keep up with all of the latest and greatest hardware.

All the reviews are in agreement and you have to own what many are calling the component of the year. Those who don't buy it run the risk of suffering from mediocre benchmark scores or unexceptional frame rates. While those who are able to make the purchase waste no time posting scores on countless tech forums and showing off their new hardware to friends at LAN parties.    Well folks, its that time once again.

Alright, it's more of a kiosk and less of a storefront, but Alienware is invading a Micro Center located in Paterson, New Jersey. In honor of the event, the Dell-owned company is hosting a LAN party, giving away a fair amount of free swag, and showcasing their various systems on Saturday, July 25. There's no word on whether or not its a BYOB event, but Alienware is promising to have plenty of its own machines around for enthusiasts and gamers to oggle. To be honest, this seems an odd move for the boutique computer OEM. While it's true that parent company Dell has cut deals with Walmart, Office Max and Staples to sell retail systems, the systems themselves are mostly the lower-end Infineon... Read more...
Costing around $3200, the Alienware Aurora 7500 is not for those looking to pinch pennies. Featuring an Athlon 64 4200+ (Dual-core), 2x 7900GT cards in SLI, and Alienware's liquid cooling system, you know the system is ready for games like F.E.A.R. and The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. While you can build a system with similar performance for much cheaper, Alienware has a reputation for quality and is a great choice for those looking for an already built gaming machine. "Before getting too far into the review some time should be given to the Alienware lineup. The desktop models currently available are the Aurora and Area-51 systems;... Read more...
Hello everyone.  Just in case you missed the fresh link at the top of the page, we wanted to let you all know that we've just posted the world's first review of Alienware's Aurora m9700 17" SLI Notebook.  Armed with a fast Turion 64 processor, 2GB of RAM, dual 7200 RPM hard drives, and a pair of GeForce 7900 MXM cards, the Alienware Aurora m9700 SLI is as powerful as some high-end desktop systems.  Click here to check it out...  ...

  With the advent of NVIDIA's SLI technology in 2004, gaming performance on the desktop was dramatically increased which allowed users to run games at higher resolutions with more image quality enhancements. Unfortunately for mobile users, the notebook platform was left behind with no immediate solution made available beyond a single flagship GPU. Fast forward two years and we find ourselves looking at a brand new mobile platform that features NVIDIA's proven nForce4 SLI chipset as well as two discrete graphics cards. The Alienware Aurora m9700 is the world's first 17" SLI capable notebook to hit the market and it promises to provide unrivaled levels... Read more...
