Alienware Gaming Desktopís
  

Under the label of Alienware Dell sells desktop and notebooks, integrated systems, which should be aimed at gamers only. You can view that awesome beast on the site which gives you an glimpse of monsters in gaming technology. Other than this Dell provides you an option of customizing that system of your own choice. With some pre-configured hardware and software support you can choose the best upgrade to make your beast more powerful. I love the design they give to the cpu case. Simply it gives a look of an outer world system, whoís performance is not comparable with others. The same also lies with the notebooks which are specially designed for higher performance.

After viewing those do not thing that those are only for gamers, but for all those who want an unique system with high performance ability and latest technology support. You might be imaging what so different in this. That is just an matter of fact. Check below some images of Alienware Exclusive desktop that you can hardly find on any other brand. People choose for custom build more, to make an economical machine with needed accessories. But simply for high performance, comprise should stay behind. For example the Aurora R3 can be configured on the Dell site. It includes a water-cooled Intel Core i7-2600K, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX Top Model 590, a 256 GB SSD and a 2 TB hard drive. That this PC is very powerful is therefore not an issue. We want to find out what exactly to expect from this complete system, and whether Dell with Aurora R3 in a harmonious package offers.

TurboBoost Technology

Most Intel processors series Core i7 & i5 comes with Turbo Boost. Boost accelerates applications that do not appeal to multi-core support, so only one of two, four or even six cores. This is a new technology implemented in the processor Intel Core i7. It allows you to raise the nominal processor frequency to a few steps if the processor is at work does not go beyond the thermal package. In the current implementation with the active load of four cores, may be increased by one step of the reference frequency - 133 MHz
In other words, when you activate Intel Turbo Boost Processor Intel Core i7-920 will not operate at the nominal frequency of 2.66 GHz , and the frequency of the turbo-mode - 2.79 GHz.

If the single-threaded application will only load one core and other cores are in sleep mode, increasing the frequency of the current implementation is possible in two steps - up to 2.93 GHz . Thus, this technology can improve the execution speed of single-threaded applications. Intel is considering the possibility of further increasing the maximum frequency mode Intel Turbo Boost.

Below are the four primary model of Dell which is offered under the Alienware Range :

Alienware Aurora : Price : $ 1199

The front, sides and top of the case light up everywhere, including inside! Little more convenient for geeks tempted to reach into the components, the tower is lit by small white LEDs, even if it is not connected to the mains. Interface customization of the PC, AlienFX, then offers the ability to set the colors for eight lighting zones, with or without gradient. In short, the possibilities are simply amazing.

Alienware Area-51 ALX : Price - $3499

About the alien has arrived: Area-51 ALX is called the fastest gaming PC that ever sees the light of our world. Let alone the pure performance-gamer friends in the mouth-watering. The four cores of Intel Core i7 975 at 3.33 GHz beat by default. As if that were not enough, there is a boost function, which accelerates it to 3.66 GHz. Our alien is also equipped with 6 GB of DDR3 RAM with a clock frequency of 1600 MHz.

Directly inspired by the Aurora ALX , Area-51 ALX is simply an extremely powerful configuration installed in a very slick package. Here, lighting, megahertz and impeccable finish combine to provide a set monster, built for the game and only for the game. The housing of the Area-51 is a model of design and finish. Covered in black mat, it is massive and imposing. The upper part consists of small plastic signs, such as aircraft speed brakes, spring out when the PC is running so that hot air can escape from inside the box. More components wind milling, as the temperature increases inevitably and the panels are raised. The fans also come into action which then produces a sound whose volume is between 51 and 53 dB. In front, there is a motorized plate that conceals Blu-ray and multi-card reader. A gadget entirely representative of the range at the head alien.


Featured Highlight :
  • It is an Exclusive ALX anodized space black chassis, featuring a motorized drive door
  • It has complete domination standard includes Alienware TactX Keyboard, TactX Mouse and TactX Headset
  • It is equipped with the Active Venting Thermal Management System
Alienware PC is also the play of light in all colors. To switch to light speed with the games, we need suitable propellants. Alienware is rarely half-measures in this area, although it is possible to adapt the configuration to your needs. Made according to our wishes, the version of the Alienware we had the hands is not the Rolls of the Area-51 ALX, but a truly balanced machine (see data sheet), a duet with keyboard-mouse particularly well done.
The Alienware Area-51 ALX Dell is above all a truly original housing, housing components on top of technology, and very well designed, and a design that should appeal to players with motorized and illuminated areas. For true enthusiasts.

The best thing about this system is that you get a pack of everything in a box. There is no need to look for compatibility details, drivers support, etc. Everything is superbly packed and designed exclusively fitting the theme. Also it is worth to pay for a brand like Dell where you are assured with quality of product. Dell just do not provide the gaming pc but what more matter is after sales support.

There are certain upgrades related to warranty which you can find when you are customizing your system. I will advice to go with the specs best before going for a purchase or just choose the regular model offered by Alienware. It has all what is needed for a gaming system. Liquid cooling support, high end cpu, great ram and a powerful graphic card. There is nothing much needed to follow. A glimpse on tech specs is enough for an expert to identify the correct the system.
