CONSIDER THE GAME CHANGED
DESKTOP POWER PACKED INTO A LAPTOP
The Area-51m features a host of firsts for peak performance and power. It’s our first-ever Alienware laptop to feature 8-core, 16-thread Intel® processors, giving it a whole new level of compute power versus other gaming laptops. Engineered with desktop processors, the CPU is enabled with up to 125% rated power, allowing high-end overclocking. This results in higher performance for megatasking, CPU-intensive gaming, as well as day-to-day applications.
Lose yourself in vivid, uninterrupted gaming thanks to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics with full-throttle power and up to 30W of overclocking headroom—all on an immersive 144Hz G-SYNC 17″ Full HD display. Users can overclock their settings via the new Alienware Command Center.
The Area-51m is also our first-ever Alienware laptop to support up to 64GB of XMP DDR4 memory, ensuring you have enough RAM for even the most performance-intensive tasks.
Gamers have made it clear that they’ve noticed a lack of CPU and GPU upgradability in gaming laptops.
The Area-51m was engineered with this in mind, finally allowing gamers to harness power comparable to even the highest-performance desktop, and taking advantage of latest technologies from NVIDIA® such as ray tracing, DLSS, and AI enhanced graphics.
CPU upgrades can be done using standard desktop-class processors, while GPU upgrades can be done with GPU upgrade kits available on Dell.com or with the Alienware Graphics Amplifier.
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH COOLING
Our thermal technology, Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech v2.0, optimizes component cooling, which maximizes overall performance and keeps your laptop cool to the touch. Here’s a closer look at our innovative cooling solution.
Dual-Intake, Dual-Exhaust Airflow Design: The Area-51m chassis prioritizes performance with a dual fan design that pulls in cool air from the bottom and top vents, while exhaling exhaust out the rear and side vents for optimal core component cooling. (The Intel® Core™ i7-8700 with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 configuration does not have a side-exhaust)
High Voltage Driving Fan: The fire resistant, liquid-crystal polymer fan is built with 0.2mm blades, sleeve bearings and 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulate air more efficiently. The Area-51m fans occupy an area of 95x105mm with a thickness ranging from 19mm to 21.5mm and can push over 25 CFM in open air conditions—something normally seen only in desktops.
Load-balancing Heat Pipes: The dynamics of thermal activity across critical components like the GPU and the CPU are intelligently discharged across various dedicated and shared 8mm and 6mm copper-composite heat pipes.The highest-end configurations carry 7 total heat pipes.
Copper Fin Stacks: The Area-51m features best-in-class surface temperatures, largely due to a thermal module, including four 0.15mm copper fins.Heat is drawn away from the most critical components to prioritize system performance and longevity.
Thermal Control: Cryo-Tech v2.0 ensures that 100% of the system’s GPU thermal design power is enabled, while also ensuring CPU-intensive games benefit from high performance.
Whisper-quiet: The cooling system of the Area-51m is so powerful, virtually no noise is heard while engaged in daily tasks.
