Alienware Announces First New AMD-Based Gaming Laptop In Over A Decade

Alienware has announced several new gaming-focused products, most notably the first Alienware gaming laptop with an AMD processor since 2007 (which was around 14 years ago).

Halo 3. The Orange Box. World Of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. And Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare. What do all these things have in common besides being epic timepieces? These gaming relics all made their red-carpet debut in 2007, like Alienware’s last AMD-based laptop, the Aurora mALX.

Fast forward 14 years to the present day and game experiences have evolved quite a bit. Powering today’s blockbuster games requires serious performance and very few know what that requires better than our friends at AMD and NVIDIA. 

Today, Dell and Alienware are starting a new chapter with AMD announcing not one but two new gaming laptops – the redesigned Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 and Dell G15 Ryzen Edition, both outfitted with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs. And to complement, Dell is also unveiling a new suite of gaming monitors to complete your battle stations.

Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5

Unrivalled visuals, high performance, and sleek design: the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 represents the triumvirate of mobile PC gaming. 

The new m15 combines cutting-edge technologies and new design features to deliver an uncompromised visual experience. Offering Alienware’s fastest displays on a 15-inch notebook ever, gamers can select up to QHD 240Hz or FHD 360Hz panels to deliver smooth gameplay. And as the first Legend 2.0-based Alienware notebook, gamers will be drawn closer into the gameplay thanks to a new design feature called Dark Core, which darkens the interior shade of the laptop to minimise distractions and keep your head in the game. All this visual goodness is powered by high-performance technologies, including:

  • Up to AMD Ryzen 5000 H-Series Mobile Processors and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series Laptop GPUs 
  • User-upgradeable 3200Mhz DDR4 memory for the first time on an Alienware 15-inch notebook 
  • First Alienware notebook finished with the new Silky-Smooth High-Endurance paint formula engineered for increased stain-resistance and premium surface feel

Finally, we can’t leave out the “cherry” on top – an optional ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard co-developed with Cherry MX that creates a distinctive typing experience and supports per-key RGB lighting.

Dell G15 Ryzen Edition

Dell is helping to bring AAA gameplay to the masses with the new 15-inch Dell G15 Ryzen Edition

On the outside, it boasts a new look in a sleek form factor that sports a two-sided, narrow-bezel screen, and uses low VOC waterborne paint. On the inside, the new G15 is outfitted with an Alienware-inspired thermal design to maximise airflow for optimal cooling and heat dissipation. The complete makeover is fully furnished with game-ready features, including:

  • Up to AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs and user-upgradeable 3200Mhz DDR4 memory
  • “Game Shift,” a functional key unique to G Series which instantly cranks up cooling performance for intense gaming sessions
  • 120Hz or 165Hz panels, with a 360Hz display coming later this spring; all featuring low-blue-light display hardware
