M17 17-inch CrossFireX™ / Core™2 Quad

The Power of CrossFireX


The M17 brings ATI CrossFireX™ to Alienware's notebook lineup for the first time ever. Delivering a revolutionary leap in mobile graphics, ATI CrossFireX dual-GPU technology brings enhanced scalability and performance along with full DirectX® 10.1 support. ATI PowerPlay™ allows the M17 to monitor GPU usage and adjust the graphics power according to current resource requirements


CrossFireX


For the first time ever, Alienware offers you the advanced graphics capabilities of ATI CrossFireX™ on a mobile platform. With the power of dual ATI GPUs, the Alienware M17 notebook delivers vastly superior graphics and higher frame rates over single GPU configurations.

A full 1GB of combined dedicated graphics memory lets you run even the most graphics-intensive games while cranking out the highest frame rates. If you want the edge in gaming, look no further. Full support for DirectX® 10.1 gives the CrossFireX-enabled M17 unparalleled clarity, enhanced scalability and advanced anti-aliasing capabilities for the most lifelike 3D environments imaginable.

The ATI Unified Video Decoder assumes all Blu-ray and HD decoding, leaving the CPU free to devote resources to interactive features such as picture-in-picture or advanced menu options. With the M17, you get to enjoy full HD resolutions and smooth, uninterrupted playback.

In gaming, the hardware you play on can mean the difference between fragging your enemies and getting fragged yourself. An M17 with ATI CrossFireX gives you the edge to dominate the competition so you won’t spend the whole game respawning.

The World’s First Mobile Quad-Core CPU


The Alienware M17 notebook is powered by the world's first-ever quad core mobile CPU. The Intel® Core™2 Quad delivers unrivaled power to the M17, supplying ample horsepower to the system so you can enjoy expanded multitasking abilities and faster speeds when taking on resource-intensive tasks such as playing next-generation games, video editing and more.


The World’s First Mobile Quad-Core CPU


The M17 offers a broad range of advanced CPU options including the latest generation of Intel® Core™2 Extreme and Intel Core 2 Quad processors. The Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core processor delivers a dramatic leap forward in multitasking, content creation, 3D gaming and more on a mobile system. By allocating tasks across four independent cores, the Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core processor allows you to take on resource-intensive tasks such as video editing, audio mixing and 3D rendering at higher speeds.

Quad-core processing also improves gaming performance by more efficiently distributing resources to AI, physics and rendering without creating bottlenecks. You get to enjoy the latest, next-generation games as the developers intended without sacrificing features or effects. The Alienware M17 pairs quad-core processors with high-speed DDR3 memory for maximum efficiency and increased performance.

Intel loaded the Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core processor with an abundance of performance-rich technologies in order to bring the user the most exciting gaming experience possible.

Intel Wide Dynamic Execution – delivers more instructions per clock cycle for faster execution times

Intel Intelligent Power Capability – improves the energy efficiency of your notebook, increasing battery life

Intel Advanced Digital Media Boost – introduces human-like artificial intelligence and real-world physics into gaming environments


Maximum Hard Drive Capacity


With the Alienware M17, having the capacity to store all your files is the last thing you need to worry about. Dual 500GB drives in a RAID 0 or RAID 1 configuration take care of that. With a full 1TB, you can hold over 150 games, 250 full-length movies or a jaw-dropping 250,000 songs. In addition, all Alienware 7200RPM drives feature Free Fall Sensor technology to further protect your valuable data


Hard Drive Basics


The Alienware M17 notebook features up to a full 1TB of storage capacity in a RAID 0 configuration, enough to hold over 150 games, 250 full-length movies or 250,000 songs.

RAID 0 vs. RAID 1


A RAID 0 configuration distributes data between two linked drives evenly by splitting saved files into two parts and saving each half on a separate drive. When saving or retrieving data, each drive’s workload is cut in half, increasing read and write speeds. With RAID 1, data is mirrored and a full copy is stored on each drive. If either drive fails, a complete backup exists on the system, preventing data loss.

5400RPM vs. 7200RPM


Hard drives store data on magnetic discs or platters. Drives contain multiple platters, each one making up a portion of the total capacity. As the platter spins, a head reads or writes data to the disc. The faster the platters spin, the more information the heads can access in a given time.

Free Fall Sensors

All Alienware 7200RPM drives feature free fall sensors which lock the drive head in place if the notebook is dropped. This keeps the head from being damaged or data from being lost.


Are You Ready For Windows Vista 64 Bit?


Alienware unleashes the full potential of its high-end hardware with Windows Vista 64 bit, unlocking all of the hardware’s dynamic features. A 64-bit operating system can process twice as much information as a 32-bit version, and can use significantly more random access memory. If you want to experience the world’s most advanced OS, you need the unrivaled power of an Alienware.


Command Center Control Panel


Whether you're adjusting your notebook's power settings in AlienFusion, customizing the touchpad functionality with AlienTouch or configuring advanced facial recognition security options in AlienSense, you can modify your M17 to fit your exact needs and preferences. Future releases and updates download directly into Command Center so your Alienware notebook is constantly evolving.


Take Control


Command Center houses all of Alienware’s exclusive software. By placing programs like AlienFusion, AlienSense and AlienTouch in a single, user-friendly interface you gain more control over your own system.

The Alienware Command Center is a continuously evolving control panel. As Alienware releases new features, you can download them, free of charge, directly into the Command Center allowing you to build a library of system management, optimization and customization tools.

AlienFusion


AlienFusion gives you access to your Alienware’s power management controls so you can decide when you need maximum performance or when you can scale back for more everyday programs, increasing energy efficiency and extending battery life.

AlienSense


AlienSense provides the ultimate level of data security. Utilizing the system’s webcam, AlienSense records and analyzes up to 1,000 facial features and biometric measurements. This data is tied to your user profile, ensuring protection against unauthorized access.

AlienTouch


AlienTouch allows you to take advantage of advanced touchpad controls. Customize your touchpad’s sensitivity to prevent accidental contact, modify “tap and drag” functions and even activate Virtual Scrolling which enables vertical and horizontal scrolling with just a brush of your finger.


High-Speed DDR3 Memory


The M17 features up to 4GB of DDR3 memory for higher speeds and extreme multitasking with even the most resource-intensive games and applications.


High-Speed Draft-N Wireless


Disconnect your M17 and maintain a stable, high-speed connection with next-generation Draft-N wireless technology.


Record HD TV and Movies


The optional internal TV tuner on the M17 lets you watch, record and save for later all your favorite TV shows and movies, including full HD programming.


Go Beyond 1080p


The M17 is designed for extreme entertainment. HD video and 3D games explode off the 17-inch LCD in Extreme High-Def 1200p resolutions.
