With a diamond focus on Ultra HD gaming, hardware company Alienware is shipping its newest flagship desktop gaming machine, the Area-51, in October and worldwide this holiday season.
The Area-51 features factory overclocked 6-core and 8-core Intel Core i7 Extreme processor options, Intel X99 Express chipset and support for up to 32 GB of 2133 DDR4 memory. Supporting dual, triple or quad GPU configurations, Alienware’s latest rig also allows 11520x2160 resolution across triple Ultra HD 4K monitors. Connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11ac wireless.
Featuring a new industrial design codenamed “Triad,” the triangular-shaped chassis sports both front and rear ports, a thermal management system that draws fresh air in the front and ejects warmed air diagonally and away out the rear.
“We’re excited to reveal the reimagined Alienware Area-51, a system that is the result of 18 years of innovation fueled by our love of gaming,” said Frank Azor, General Manager of Alienware in a prepared statment. “We questioned everything and then began working on a system based on how we actually use our full-tower desktops rather than based on what was quick, easy or comfortable for us to design.”
Alienware Command Center 4.0 features nine programmable lighting zones on the chassis with 20 colors and 512 trillion lighting combinations using AlienFX. Command Center allows users to automatically overclock the system and adjust CPU clocks, voltages, memory timings and more. Users can also monitor hardware hardware monitoring and manage performance profiles configurations through the Alien Adrenaline software.
The company also announced that orders for the Dell UltraSharp 34-inch Monitor (U3415W) will open in China in November and worldwide in December. The monitor features an ultra-wide 21:9 screen, WQHD 3440x1440 resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. It also sports an adjustable stand, HDMI 2.0, MHL, DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort connectivity and dual integrated 9 watt speakers.
