CES: Dell debuts Alienware m17

Dell introduced its thinnest and lightest Alienware 17-inch gaming notebook, the m17, at CES in Las Vegas this week. It packs an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 20 Series GPUs. Powerful enough to graphically-intensive games, yet portable enough to take from destination to destination, the m17 weighs 2.6 kg.

Performance is delivered by the 8th-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors featuring dynamic CPU overclocking, thanks to elevated thermal headroom from Cryo-Tech Cooling technology. These industry-leading processors are paired with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 20 Series GPUs that deliver advanced gaming features including real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence and programmable shading.

Alienware has made more than 30 updates to its proprietary Alienware Command Center, a central hub that allows gamers to customise all aspects of their experience. Based on feedback from its community, the changes include system and peripheral lighting, power management, thermal control, overclocking, audio, and content organisation.

The Command Center now offers GPU overclocking (and underclocking), allowing changes to take effect at the system level and work in conjunction with CPU and RAM overclocking as well as thermals. These user interface improvements make Alienware Command Center easier to use.

Dell also announced a PC hardware partnership with Riot Games and League of Legends Esports, saying it was ushering in a new generation of PCs that will enable League pros to compete at a higher level and also standardise operational logistics for their global operations.

The laptop will be available in South Africa from 1 February.
