Alienware to Launch the Ultimate AMD Advantage Laptop & Industry-First Display Technology

Check out these amazing news devices being launched by Alienware and Dell Technologies today:

Alienware m17 R5

Our most powerful Alienware laptop to date now welcomes the new AMD Radeon™ RX 6850M XT 12GB GDDR6 GPU to the configuration lineup to claim the throne as the world’s most powerful 17” AMD Advantage laptop for truly unmatched performance.

This laptop delivers extreme speeds and response times so you can play your favourite titles with such smooth gameplay, it’ll feel like the game’s become an extension of your senses. This laptop also offers the following AMD Smart Technologies to enhance your gameplay:
• AMD Smart Shift Max: Dynamic power shifting between a Radeon GPU and APU boosts performance for gaming, rendering, and content creation.
• AMD Smart Access Graphics: Improve frame rates, reduce latency and save battery by enabling discrete Radeon graphics or Ryzen graphics to handle rendering and presentation while maintaining AMD FreeSync™. Only available with select models.[i]
• AMD Smart Access Memory: Get an extra edge when your Ryzen processors can harness the full potential of the Radeon graphics card memory.
• AMD FreeSync™ Premium: Put an end to choppy gameplay with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate. This adaptive sync technology matches the refresh rate of your graphics and your display for buttery-smooth gameplay.

New configuration available in Australia and New Zealand on July 19, 2022, priced at $5799 AUD for R9X w/ RX8650MXT.

480Hz Display Technology

The industry’s first FHD (1920 x 1080) 480Hz 3ms panels is now available on the Alienware m17 R5 and Alienware x17 R2 gaming laptops. This display technology brings a multitude of gameplay benefits like animation smoothness for easier target tracking, ghosting reduction to minimise distracting effects, and lower system latency to make it easier for you to spot other players earlier. These panels are available with either AMD FreeSync™ or NVIDIA G-SYNC with Advanced Optimus to compliment whichever graphics card you select.

Alternatively, we offer UHD (3840 x 2160) 120Hz 3ms displays on m17 R5 and x17 R2 laptops for those more interested in a higher-resolution panel over higher framerates.

Australian prices TBC.

Dell G16

The new Dell G16 is designed for PC gamers who need the essential gaming features but want mobility and performance without sacrificing screen size.

The laptop features a 16-inch panel in a 15-inch chassis with a 16:10 aspect ratio to provide gamers 11% more screen than the G15’s 16:9 display, netting a larger gaming and cinematic experience. The larger viewing area is complimented by 3-sided narrow bezels and fitted with a QHD+ (2560×1600) 165Hz display that hits a sweet spot between high resolution and high frame rates.

Under the hood, the G16 is equipped with copper pipes, four vents, and ultra-thin fan blades to optimise cooling and maximise airflow for consistent high-end gaming performance. It’s armed with a 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-12700H 14-core processor and up to a NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 3070 Ti. To ensure your machine is running optimally during intense party raids and boss encounters, activate the “Game Shift” key in the F9 position which instantly cranks up cooling performance.

Available in Australia and New Zealand on July 20, 2022, starting price TBC
