Alienware Area-51m R2

Alienware’s top-end gaming laptop is making the step up to Intel’s Comet Lake platform, with processor options up to the new Core i9-10900K with overclocking support. On the GPU side, NVIDIA options span the entire top end of NVIDIA’s lineup, from the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, and RTX options with the RTX 2060, RTX 2070 Super, and RTX 2080 Super. There’s even a new AMD GPU offering with the Radeon RX 5700M. AMD offers up to 64 GB of DDR4-2933 RAM, as well 16 and 32 GB options with DDR4-3200 XMP.

New for this model year is RAID 0 boot drive options with dual PCIe M.2 drives, for those craving the ultimate performance, and there are also spinning drives available for bulk data storage. For 2020 the laptop adds Wi-Fi 6 support, with the Killer Wi-Fi6 AX 1650i, as well as the Killer E3000 Ethernet port with 2.5 Gbps, which is a nice touch for those that can run Ethernet. There’s plenty of I/O as well, with three USB Gen 1 ports, a Thunderbolt 3 Type-C port, an Alienware Graphics Amplifier port, HDMI 2.0b, Mini DisplayPort 1.4, and both microSD and SD card readers.

Alienware offers a couple of panel options for the 17.3-inch display, with 1920x1080 144 Hz with and without G-SYNC, a 1920x1080 300 Hz panel, and a 3840x2160 60 Hz option with 100% Adobe RGB gamut. All of the displays also support Tobii Eyetracking.

This is a desktop replacement, with desktop CPU options and a desktop Z490 chipset, and with weights between 4.1 kg and 4.7 kg (9.04 to 10.4 lbs) you’ll want a sturdy desk to sit it on. large laptops generally offer significantly better thermal performance than thin and light machines, and Dell has improved the cooling this year with new fans, and vapor chamber cooling on the higher tier models. This monster laptop will be available June 9th, starting at $3049.99 USD.

Alienware m15 and m17

Also getting a bump to Comet Lake, the thinner and lighter m15 and m17 models from Alienware stick to the more traditional H-Series processors from Intel, with Core i5, i7, and i9 options. There is a wide range of GPU options, with the NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti and GTX 1660 Ti, as well as the RTX 2060, RTX 2070, RTX 2070 Super, and RTX 2080 in Max-Q guise in the m15 and higher performance mode in the larger m17. Dell is also offering the AMD Radeon RX 5500M option as well.

Dell offers RAM up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666, and for storage there are options from 256 GB to 2 TB PCIe SSD, or up to 4 TB in RAID 0, and a third M.2 slot as well so you can run up to three PCIe SSDs on these systems.

On the display side, the 15.6-inch model offers 1920x1080 144 Hz with and without G-SYNC, as well as a 300 Hz option and a UHD resolution OLED display with 100% P3 gamut coverage. The 17.3-inch offers the same 1920x1080 144 Hz with and without G-SYNC, a 300 Hz option, and a UHD panel which is not OLED but does cover 100% of the Adobe RGB gamut. All displays also support Tobii Eyetracking.

Despite the smaller design, the devices still offer an abundance of ports, with three USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, Thunderbolt 3 Type-C, an Alieware Graphics Amplifier port, HDMI 2.0, mini DisplayPort 1.4, and Micro SD. These also feature the Killer E3000 NIC with 2.5 Gbps support and Killer AX1650i Wi-Fi 6.

Dell is also refreshing their budget-conscious gaming models, with the G3 and G5 15 moving to 10th generation H-Series and new NVIDIA graphics options, and Dell is also releasing the new G5 15 SE featuring AMD Ryzen 4000 and Radeon RX 5600M, first teased back at CES.

The Intel based G3 and G5 models offer Core i5 and Core i7 H-Series CPUs, up to hex-core, and both GTX and RTX GPUs. The AMD model offers Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7, and Ryzen 9 H-Series, with a single GPU choice in the RX 5600M. Dell is offering 1920x1080 IPS displays with 60 Hz, 144 Hz, and 300 Hz choices, depending on model.

At a starting weight of 5.51 lbs, the laptops are not as portable as some gaming systems, but that should help with thermals. Dell offers 51 Wh and 68 Wh battery options, if you do need to lug the system around with you.

The new models will be available May 21st, starting at $779.99 for the G3 and $829.99 for the G5.

    A shame about the G15 battery options. A 80-90 Wh battery would be nice. Reply

    Too bad for those with money to burn, won't be getting a Ryzen. Reply

    I don't get it - is there something stopping Dell from using 1080p OLED displays? Why do they HAVE to be 4K? Reply
  • Jetcat3 - Thursday, May 14, 2020 - link

    No other manufacturers producing a 15.6” AMOLED panel other than Samsung Display. They are rumored to be producing a 1080P version of this though. Reply
