Connect and conquer

A built-in Killer™ Gigabit Ethernet NIC identifies and prioritizes your network traffic so that latency-sensitive streams that require maximum speed, like games or video chat, are prioritized over less-important traffic. See which applications are hogging your bandwidth and limit them using Visual Bandwidth Control™ so they don’t interfere with your games. Or go wireless with a Broadcom® 5G WiFi adapter for faster speeds, better range and improved battery life.

Massive storage and monster speed

Make your Alienware system a vault of games, movies and music with an optional 1TB Quad Play solid-state drive (SSD) configuration — that’s four 256GB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration.
