Alienware Aurora R13: Rated 4/5
"A powerful, quiet-running and attractive rig that should keep most gamers happily fragging and streaming for years to come." — Tom's Hardware
Spacious interior, superior thermals
Take your gaming to new heights with the Aurora R13, featuring the new Legend 2.0 design that provides a 50% increase to internal volume*. The more spacious, tool-less design improves accessibility, while enabling better cable management and quieter acoustics.
The new Legend 2.0 design prioritizes cooling via a reorganized internal layout, which in turn creates less airflow obstructions. With less obstructions, fans can provide more airflow with less effort—resulting in the performance you want and the quieter acoustics you deserve.
Marathon gaming sessions welcome, thanks to robust thermal architecture that’s available with standard liquid cooling which delivers quieter acoustics and great performance.
A 360-degree approach to design
Designed to look as sleek as possible, both inside and out, the Aurora desktop features a clear side panel that includes EMI shielding and scratch resistance. This panel offers a window into an organized, AlienFX-lit interior, where gamers can see high-performance components and the new dark motherboard—which was designed with style and efficiency, enabling cable routing that’s been laid out with purpose.
With a clear side panel, you get two internal AlienFX lighting zones. You can then adjust AlienFX RGB colors shining across the internals, for a personalized experience and a more dynamic appearance when gaming in a dark room.
Engineered with esports in mind, where competitors are often viewed from the back of a system, the new Legend 2.0 design is meant to please the eye from every angle. The chassis is just as sleek from the rear as it is from the front, with expressive curves and an iconic sculpted shape elevating the overall aesthetic.
The evolved design of the Aurora desktop features additional air venting and lighting that reflects across the front. The honeycomb-shaped airways increase intake efficiency to maximise air movement—for a superior gaming experience.
Thanks to doors on either side of the new chassis—and a magnetic rear cable cover*—you can now easily access and swap out components on your Aurora desktop. Ports are positioned on the front and rear for ease of use, while powder coated parts deliver a smooth, seamless contour.
Impressive graphics, easy customization
Using AI rendering, NVIDIA® Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) delivers a massive performance boost at the same power when compared to other graphics cards at similar resolutions.
NVIDIA’s 2nd Gen RTX graphics cards come with the building blocks for incredibly fast and efficient GPUs. The all-new NVIDIA® Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors (SM) bring higher throughput, allowing for faster data processing while offering improved power efficiency.*
Cutting-edge tech, the latest from Intel®
When it comes to processors, all gamers want the latest and greatest. The R13 satisfies that itch, with 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors that help to ensure everything you do with your PC runs quickly and efficiently.
The fastest memory class for gaming PCs is now available on the R13, providing a 50% increase in memory bandwidth over the Aurora R12. This means you can play, stream and multi-task with more ease than ever.
Equipped with new PCI-Express 5.0 slot for graphics, the R13 provides double the capable data transfer rates from the previous generation. Plus, PCI-Express 5.0 allows you to keep your graphics card updated—giving you confidence in your rig, knowing it can compete today and tomorrow.
This Aurora model introduces SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps—which as the name implies—allows up to 20Gbps to be transferred. That’s TWICE as fast as USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps and FOUR times as fast as USB 3.2 Gen 1 5Gbps—so you can transfer games or media collections to external storage faster than ever.
When it comes to efficiently delivering and maintaining power to your PC, the Aurora R13 is hard to beat, offering up to 750W Platinum-rated PSU. This will ensure that your machine is well-equipped for the most demanding of scenarios and for the most power-hungry of upgrades.
