The Alienware Aurora R15 high-end gaming PC in detail
The new Alienware Aurora R15 is said to combine the maximum performance with the optimized case of the Legend 2.0 series and score with a new cooling system and technology.
All configurations rely on hexagonal side air vents, while an optional side panel made of glass also allows a view inside. A water cooling system with a 240 mm radiator and, for Intel K-series CPUs, five 120 mm case fans are already installed ex-works.
The new cooling system is said to have improved the airflow by 19 percent, while the CPU performs demanding tasks 66 percent quieter and the GPU at least 9 percent quieter. The developers have also worked on the cable management, so that no connections and cables disturb the airflow.
Killer E3100G provides Gigabit LAN and fast Wi-Fi 6 or 6E on all models. The customizable AlienFX lighting also now offers up to eight customizable lighting zones. The rear panel also holds a magnetic cable cover to hide cables that protrude from the case.
