Powered by NVIDIA® VRWorks technology, a new level of presence is achieved by bringing physically realistic visuals, sound, touch interactions, and simulated environments to virtual reality. And with NVIDIA® GeForce® 10-series graphics, the Alienware 17 goes beyond what’s expected.
Realistic gaming functions: Armed with knowledge about your presence, eye movement and corresponding head movement, Tobii eye tracking enhances your games, including Tom Clancy's The Division, Watch Dogs 2 and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, so you can input commands that are more in tune to real life. Aim where you look, signal teammates with a glance and navigate a cockpit freely. See the full library at www.tobii.com/apps.
System intelligence: Armed with more information about you, including your attention and position in front of the laptop, your machine can now optimize power usage and even trigger more advanced security profiles. A groundbreaking new feature exclusive to Alienware machines.
Game coaching: With new exclusive Overwolf apps, replay your gaze pattern and see where you went wrong. Learn from your mistakes, find new opportunities and crush the competition.
NVIDIA® G-Sync technology, available on select models, delivers the smoothest, fastest experience ever thanks to synchronized display refresh rates to the GPU in your GeForce® GTX-powered PC, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag.
Create a more personalized look for your machine with new and improved AlienFX. Designed with optimized RGB-LED enabled AlienFX lighting and now supported on over 130 games, with the option to create and download unique themes.
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.
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.
