Thin, slimmer, thinnest. While Intel launched the 35-watt Tiger Lake H collection chips at CES in order to tee off what the particular company calls “ultraportable gaming,” laptops incorporating this such as the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE often go smaller since well. Though we may know exactly how slim or light Alienware’s forth-coming X17 is — although we do know they have depending on nonspecific 11th-gen Intel and Nvidia RTX 30-series chips — it will look like Alienware will be attempting to build the serious gaming laptop the particular thickness of the particular Dell XPS 17 or the Razer Blade Pro 17.


The By series, slated for official unveiling June 1 upon Twitch, looks nearly the same as Alienware’s m series, therefore it is not really clear where it appears relative to the currently pretty thin m17 plus m15; Alienware launched the 11th-gen Tiger Lake-H models associated with the m15 and Dell G5 15 today, since well, following design improvements kicked off using the m15 Ryzen Edition and Dell G15 in early April. It’s telling that the corporation had more to expose about its cooling program developments instead of performance or even features — in this particular case Gallium-Silicon thermal insert to improve heat diffusion in the CPU and the novel airflow design that will intakes and outblows through both sides — some thing we see frequently through manufacturers happy with how slim they’re making new items.

It’s not all thrilling games, though, for the particular processor upgrades. Dell’s XPS 15 and 17 outlines also bump up in order to offering 11th-gen H collection CPUs and RTX 3050 series GPUs. The XPS 15 also gets the new 3.5K OLED option rather than 4K, an oddball resolution which is slightly lower than QHD’s 3.7K.

The Precision cellular workstations dive into 11th gen Core as properly as the 11th-gen Xeon mobile processors Intel folded out and slightly old Nvidia RTX A5000 workstation GPUs for the 7000 series. 

Dell plus Alienware laptops won’t deliver until July and prices will stay a mystery till then.
