For the first time since 2007, an Alienware laptop will accommodate an AMD chip. It bears the sweet name of the Alienware m15 Ration Edition R5 and was released in the United States on April 20.
The exact model of the processor is not yet known, but it will be the 5000 H-series, hence from the latest generation, which is not good news. On the graphics card side, we also know that Alienware can rely on the RTX 30 Series, without further accuracy.
This 15-inch will likely be available in multiple versions as the manufacturer mentions three different screen options: Full HD resolution in 360Hz or 165Hz, or QHD in 240Hz. The 360 Hz and 240 Hz versions will be compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and Advanced Optimus.
It is also the first 15-inch Alienware to offer DDR4 3200 MHz memory with user upgrades. The final major benefit of this future model, its Cherry MX keyboard, with RGB support, is known for mechanics from a relatively silent keyboard.
Each configuration will be equipped with a WiFi 6 killer antenna, an HDMI 2.1 port compatible with native 4k / 120 Hz, a 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 and one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C.
Dell G15 updated
In addition to this important announcement, Dell is renewing its range of affordable and entry-level gaming PCs, the Dell G15, previously introduced with the 8th-generation Intel Core and the Ryzen 4000. For this Dell G15, two options are still available for you: AMD or Intel.
From AMD, for € 949 to be released on April 30, two models are emerging: one is equipped with a Ryzen 5 5600 H (6 cores, 16M cache, 4.2 GHz maximum frequency), one more expensive, which Provides a Raizen MB5 MB00H (es core, 16 MB cache and frequency up to 4.7 GHz).
Whatever the model, the Dell G15 with AMD will feature the RX 3060 as a graphics card equipped with 6GB of video memory. Dell made sense to pair it with a full HD display, which was available with a refresh rate of 120Hz or 165Hz.
On the memory side, it will be possible to move up to 32 GB of DDR4 3200 MHz memory. Storage options are also the order of the day, as SSD options range from 256 GB to 2 TB.
For Intel, more options, and a little less memory
For the Dell G15 equipped with a 10th generation Intel Core processor, it will be released in the United States on 13 April and available in France for € 899. As processors, we can count on the i5-10200H with four cores or the i7-10870H, for its part with six cores.
The Intel card offers slightly more options in terms of graphics cards, as we can convert to the GTX 1650 or RTX 3060 depending on its needs. The only version equipped with RTX has an HDMI 2.1 cable, which supports the original 4k 120Hz transmission.
The non-touch screen, a 15.6-inch full HD, is available in 120 Hz or 165 Hz which once again seems to suit the chosen components, especially in the context of video cards.
The memory options are slightly less interesting than the AMD range, with the possibility of choosing 8 and 16 GB of DDR4 at 2933 MHz. However, if desired, it will be possible to add more memory later. SSD storage is available from 256 GB to 2 TB.
