Alienware x16: Gaming notebook with 480 Hz and touchpad including RGB lighting

Dell has introduced the Alienware x16, an exciting and powerful new gaming notebook, at CES 2023. It relies on a fresh design, the latest hardware including GeForce RTX-4000 graphics chips and a display that is up to 480 Hz fast.

Alienware x16: The new 16-inch gaming notebook in detail

With the new Alienware x16, Dell and Alienware are targeting demanding gamers. The gaming notebook is equipped with Intel Raptor Lake-H processors, up to a maximum of Core i9-13900HK, the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 graphics chips, up to 32 GB LPDDR5-6000 RAM and a maximum of 4 terabytes of SSD storage, distributed over two M.2 slots. A variant with AMD CPUs is also planned for the second quarter of 2023.

The x16 relies on a 16-inch display in 16:10 format, which is offered in different versions. Thus, you have the choice between a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels with 165 hertz, a QHD resolution with 240 Hz or a 1080p FHD resolution with a whopping 480 Hz.

The design of the gaming notebook has been revised, with the case now made entirely of metal. Including larger and more aggressive looking fan openings. With a thickness of 18.6 mm, the Alienware x16 still turns out quite compact, but still weighs around 2.72 kilograms.

Trackpad with RGB lighting

Also offered is a backlit keyboard and a larger trackpad that features RGB lighting. The keyboard is also optionally available as a mechanical keyboard with CherryMX Ultra Low Profile switches.

The equipment is rounded off by a wide selection of ports. Two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, one USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, HDMI 2.1, Mini-DisplayPort 1.4 and a microSD card reader are offered.

Price and availability

Unsurprisingly, the Alienware x16 will not be a bargain. The gaming notebook will be launched in the first quarter of 2023 at a recommended retail price of $3,099, with cheaper configurations starting at $2,149 to follow later. However, it is unclear how these will differ from the top model.
