Alienware now sells the Aurora R11 gaming PC with a custom-built RTX 3080 or 3090

Editor’s take: Considering the chaotic launch of the Nvidia 3080 and 3090 GPUs, it only seems a matter of time until Alienware runs out of its updated Aurora R11 prebuilt gaming PCs. It’s apparently one of the very few available options on the market right now that lets players experience the latest and greatest from Nvidia and AMD. Alienware has even gone for a custom GPU design for the Aurora R11/R10 that can be specced with up to a 10C/20T 10th-gen Intel i9-10900KF CPU or a 12C/24T AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT and also includes a chunky 1,000W PSU for those power-hungry internals.

Dell’s latest revision for its Alienware gaming lineup includes the new Aurora R11 gaming desktop, which now features a custom GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 built by Dell. These GPUs pack quad 10mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapor chambers that Alienware calls its largest diameter heat pipe

Alienware m15 R3 Review: A Quieter, Powerful Gaming Laptop

Alienware m15 R3

Thin and light gaming laptops are no longer a novelty, as practically every PC maker offers their own take on the category. Some of them don’t always stand-out from the crowd, however, and can push the envelope on thermals in ever-tighter chassis designs. That is most definitely not the case with Dell’s Alienware m15 R3 though, unless you want to compare it to last year’s Alienware m15 R2. At a passing glance, this year’s refresh looks just like last year’s model. That is not a bad thing, as the new m15 R3 is a head-turning laptop with some notable improvements to this newest iteration, including a revamped cooling solution.

Quite frankly, we are just fine with the overall physical design staying the same for another round. Dell had already given the m15 a complete facelift last year, ditching the gray digs and outdated aesthetic of the original model and dressing

Alienware m15 R3 Review: A Quieter, Powerful Gaming Laptop – Page 4

Cooling is tricky business for laptops in general, and especially thinner and lighter designs with this kind of horsepower under the hood. To keep temps in check, Dell employed its “Cryo-Tech” cooling technology, which consists in part of “creative thermal module designs” as the company puts it. The Alienware m15 R3 also uses a new CPU vapor chamber cooling system on configurations that feature a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or higher GPU.
For this latest iteration, Dell-Alienware made a few upgrades to the cooling scheme in general. There are 25 percent more fan blades over last year’s model, resulting in a 10 percent CFM (cubic feet per minute) jump in overall airflow. Dell also says it added 39 percent more weight in copper to the heat sink itself, to help dissipate more heat.
