Alienware has prepared several new gaming devices for its fans. So, users are offered gaming computers Alienware Aurora R11 and Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition, which include video cards GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090. But the manufacturer does not use ready-made video cards of third-party brands, but his own modified solutions.
Alienware’s GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards feature their own PCB and cooling system. Thanks to this, the engineers were able to create more compact versions of devices that are easier to place in a small system unit. In particular, the length of such a video card is only 267 mm versus 285 mm for the RTX 3080 Founder Edition (partner versions are usually even larger). Alienware graphics cards also feature a modified cooling system with 10mm heatpipes, vapor chamber and dual fans that occupies two and a half PCIe slots. The device also uses two standard 8-pin power connectors instead of the 12-pin NVIDIA solution.
Using your own video cards significantly increases the cost of Aurora computers. By ordering a configuration with a version of the GeForce RTX 3080, buyers will have to pay an additional $ 825, and if you focus on the top model GeForce RTX 3090, then you will have to pay an additional $ 1625. The price of a ready-made system with a GeForce RTX 3080 video card will be at least $ 1800 (you still have to pay extra for a more powerful 1000 W power supply, since the basic configuration uses a 550 W power supply). But if you increase the RAM to 16 GB and install a bootable SDD, the price will already exceed $ 2000.
There are also three new Alienware 25 (AW2521H), Alienware 27 (AW2721D) and Alienware 38 (AW3821DW) monitors available for purchase at $ 899.99, $ 1099.99 and $ 1899.99. Their sales will begin next month.
