The Alienware 17 has been upgraded to give gamers the tools they need to be the best.

Killer™ Wireless: Killer DoubleShot™ Pro provides wired and wireless networking setups that prioritize internet traffic and data stream to the applications most important to you.

Alienware Graphics Amplifier support: Enables future-proofing of upgradeable full length, dual-wide graphics and additional 4-port USB 3.0 hub for added peripherals. We’ve added a PCIe x4 Gen 3 connection with dedicated throughput for connectivity that’s superior even to a Thunderbolt.

Thunderbolt Type-C port: This multi-use port is ready to be used as a USB 3.1 port, offering 10Gbps of data transfer, a Thunderbolt connection capable of 40Gbps, or even a Display Port enabling various monitors supporting the DP protocol.

Longer battery life: The Alienware 17 contains a 68Whr battery with an optional 99 Whr* lithium-ion battery. We offer the maximum amount of battery power legally allowed with the 99Whr battery– storing and delivering the most amount of power found in any laptop battery for longer uninterrupted gameplay. The new Alienware 17 can support up to 10 hours of battery life, as tested with the 99 Whr battery and an FHD LCD configuration.*

Solid-state drive: An SSD brings awesome benefits to your system. Load your games faster, get shock and vibration protection, better speed and capacity, and much more. Solid-state drives (SSDs) make virtually no noise and have less failures because they have no moving parts. A quieter system means you can better pinpoint every footstep your enemy makes.
Experience the full spectrum.

AlienFX uses 20 different colors to create over 80 quadrillion unique themes to give your machine a more personalized look. Supported on over 130 titles, lighting zones can be customized to react to things like in game actions, powering on and off, and notifications by pulsing, morphing or simply holding a solid color. Once you’ve finished your theme, you can save and upload it to the Alienware Arena community site where you can share your custom creation with others and download any you find. And for times when you want a little less visual stimulation, AlienFX allows you to “go dark” by disabling all lighting effects until you’re ready to turn them back on.
Alienware Command Center 4.6
AlienFusion: The new Always Ready Mode puts your system in a state in between sleep and awake, allowing core programs to run in the background while the machine runs quietly and in a lower power mode.

AlienAdrenaline: Featuring customizable game and application options, a system performance optimizer and a performance monitoring tool, AlienAdrenaline provides users all the tools they need to keep one step ahead of the competition.

Thermal Controls: Change settings and monitor internal temperatures and speeds of certain fans within your PC using the Active Thermals module.

OC Controls: Take control of overclocking levels for your memory and CPU with OC controls.
