As much as a gaming laptop has increased dramatically over the past few years, all of that power still comes with a significant compromise. You sacrifice a lot of portability to play PC games while traveling. And while the latest model cannot pass the thin and light alienware, Alienware has announced two thinning new models deceived: X15 and X17. From both, Alienware claims the first is the most powerful 15-inch sub-16 mm laptop in the world in the world. In the thinnest iteration, x15 measuring 1.59 cm (0.64 inches).
To put things in perspective, Asus Zephyrus G15 and Razer Blade 15 forward, two better 15-inch gaming laptops that you can buy at this time, come at 1.95 cm (0.77 inches) and 1.58 cm thick (0.62 inches), respectively. X17, meanwhile, size of 2.09 cm (0.82 inches), made it proportional to 1.99 cm (0.78 inches) Blade Pro 17.
As you can imagine, Alienware is playing all the work entered to ensure X15 and X17 don’t cook their components. Both of them include four internal fans. Alienware sensors have been placed inside and around critical components help programs assisted by AI to control each independently. The company said it had also installed a very efficient voltage regulator to help heat dissipation. Model with RTX 3070 and on it comes with a special gallium-silicon compound applied to the CPU. The company claims the thermal interface up to 25 percent better in transferring heat to heatsink rather than the solution used in the previous M15 R4 notebook.
Each is also equipped with ventilation above, down, back and side of the lower chassis. The result is a design that makes both computers without many side ports. Both features are only input power at one end and headphone jack on the other side. Which left all of their other IO relegated backwards. In terms of X15, you get a single USB port, two USB-C connections, microSD slot and HDMI output 2.1. X17, meanwhile, comes with two USB-C and USB-A ports, an Ethernet jack, microSD slot and HDMI 2.1 output and DisplayPort 1.4.
Internally, the Intel X15 and X17 features recently announced the 11th generation H series processor. Both come with 8-core standards, 16-thread i7 11800h, which you can upgrade to i9 11900h. Each also is equipped with 16GB of 3,200 MHz RAM by default. You can configure x15 with up to 32GB of RAM, while X17 maxes out at 64GB. Storage starts at 256GB through NVME. With one SSD, 2TB is max, but you can also use a double setting for a total of 4TB.
Things become more complicated when you get to a 3D card on each model. Both the X15 and X17 come with a standard RTX 3060, and you can pay extra to improve to RTX 3070 or RTX 3080. But if the power of the GPU is all you pursue, x17 is a way to go with it a strong version of each card. In X15, for example, RTX 3070 can draw a maximum of 110W power and increase the hourly speed to 1.410MHz. Instead, RTX 3070 X17 can draw 140W and increase to 1.620MHz. With RTX 3080, you can also get RGB TouchPad.
