When you add the graphics amplifier to the compact X51, you’ll have more options when it comes to arranging your desk. You don’t need much space, so you can place this duo where you want it.
Even without the amplifier, X51 delivers exceptional gaming performance at 1080p and supports up to an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 graphics card. The amp is also compatible with Alienware laptops.
With Turbo Boost Technology, your processor runs faster when you need it to and saves battery when you don’t. And Hyper-Threading Technology increases performance on multi-threaded tasks so you can run various programs more smoothly. The X51’s entire engine has been overhauled since the last generation, now built on a foundation that’s based on the Intel Z170 Chipset and the latest DDR4 memory.
