In the gaming world, the debate about AMD versus Intel processors rages on. But if you wanted an Alienware laptop for the past 14 years, you once had a choice: Intel. That series will come to an end on April 20 with Alienware̵
It’s an Alienware notebook, so expect flashy styles and specifications. Dell’s gaming division promises cutting edge technology, and that starts with the display. The laptop has a 15 inch screen with a choice of FHD 360Hz, QHD 240Hz or FHD 165Hz screens. The first two are displays that have NVIDIA G-Sync and Advanced Optimus technology enabled. Alienware also touts a design feature called “Dark Core” that “darkens the inside of the notebook to minimize distraction.”
It’s also the first 15-inch Alienware laptop to feature 3200Mhz DDR4 memory, but as an added bonus, the RAM is user-upgradeable. You get Wi-Fi 6, an HDMI 2.1, a 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port and a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port. That should be more than enough to connect all the peripherals and monitors you need.
The return to AMD is the big step here, and you get a choice of the AMD 5000 Ryzen 5000 series
processors, including Ryzen 5000 H series mobile processors. And Alienware plans to offer an optional mechanical keyboard developed by Cherry.
The Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 gaming laptop will launch April 20 with a starting price of $ 1793.98.
