RAISING THE BAR ONCE AGAIN
Made for multitasking: With up to 128GB of overclockable high performance XMP DDR4 memory, there’s no limit to what all you can do at one time. The Aurora R12 can double as a gaming content editing system or gamers can stream and record while chatting and looking up guides during game play.
Imposing power: Our new 80 PLUS Gold rated optional 1000W and 550W power supplies have been selected to power the latest graphics technologies. Engineered for exceptional levels of power efficiency, the 1000W power supply delivers incredible overall performance thanks to a highly efficient signal going into each of your components.
INNOVATIVE GRAPHICS POWER, AIRFLOW, AND COOLING
Extensive cooling: Our thermal design includes quad 10mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapor chambers – our largest diameter heat pipe design to date – designed for exceptional gaming performance.
Innovative airflow: Another added boost for graphics performance is made possible by a dual-axial fan design with positive rear pressure relief – a new Alienware first for graphics cards. The positive rear pressure relief allows heat to escape from specially located vents designed to aid with flow and thermal management. This new approach is built with gamers in mind.
Engineered for efficiency: These custom graphics card designs, included in both NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 and 3090 graphics, are built with space efficiency with a max length of just 267mm that covers a 2.5x slots and offers a dual 6-pin/8-pin PCI-Express power connectors. All these choices have been made to create efficiency with uncompromised gaming performance.
GRAPHICS CARD TECHNOLOGIES: AMD RADEON™ IMAGE SHARPENING
AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening: AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening (RIS) is a contrast-adaptive sharpening algorithm designed to intelligently enhance details to deliver crisp-looking visuals with minimal performance impact.
AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag: The new Radeon Anti-Lag feature in Radeon Software is designed to help reduce input lag in GPU-limited cases. Radeon Anti-Lag controls the pace of the CPU work to make sure it doesn't get too far ahead of the GPU, reducing the amount of CPU work queued up. As a result, Radeon Anti-Lag can shrink input lag by almost a full frame, restoring the responsiveness to your game.
AMD Radeon™ FreeSync™ Technology: AMD Radeon FreeSync technology in the AMD Radeon™ RX graphics on the Alienware Aurora resolves the communication issues between processor and monitor, eliminating image tears and choppiness for effortlessly smooth gameplay.
ENGINEERED FOR AN UNENDING ADVANTAGE
Gaming made timeless: With DIY in mind, the Aurora R12 is equipped with an innovative PSU swing-arm, which enables a variety of benefits like tool-less graphics and expansion bay upgrades, as well as a compact chassis size. It also allows graphics cards to be positioned for purposeful airflow. The swing-arm carries the power supply which allows for airflow through the side vent, while securing and reducing vibrations during shipping to the cards themselves.
LEGENDS LIVE ON
The future of design: The Legend industrial design innovates the elements of Alienware's roots and pushes the Aurora into a new realm. The unique design helps avid gamers stand out from the crowd thanks to bold, continuous lighting and the iconic central loop of AlienFX that unleashes dynamic color versatility. Plus, thoughtfully positioned front I/O ports, easy to reach rear ports and upgradeable components offer extreme gaming flexibility. Finally, functional front airways and hexagonal-shaped side venting boosts intake efficiency and maximizes air movement.
Legendary looks: Find your own battle style and choose from Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon color options featuring an ultra-smooth satin finish.
Flexibility is key: The Aurora is thoughtfully engineered for enhanced usability. With an easy-access side entry panel and conveniently placed ports, including three USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type A) ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type-C) port, plus a headset and mic plug-in all located in the front of the system, it’s built for easy flexibility.
Get schooled: The Alienware Aurora is coming to the classroom thanks to an esports for EDU initiative that enables universities across the United States to develop their own esports programs using uncompromising gear.
