HARDWIRED FOR HIGHER PERFORMANCE
In addition to the performance innovation from hyper-efficient voltage regulation, the new Alienware m15 is engineered to enable Dynamic CPU overclocking on all processor options.
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH V3.0
With all the latest engineering enhancements, you can expect increased power efficiency and higher speeds for longer sustained periods.
Here’s a closer look at our innovative cooling solution:
Dual-intake, dual-exhaust airflow design: Our thin and light chassis prioritizes performance with a dual fan design that pulls in cool air from the top and bottom vents, and exhales exhaust out the rear and side vents for optimal cooling of the core components.
High voltage driving fan: The fire resistant, Kevlar-like liquid-crystal polymer fan blades include sleeve bearings, and 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulate air more efficiently. There are now 106 unique fan blades to cool both the CPU and GPU.
Load-balancing heat pipes: The dynamics of thermal activity across critical components like the GPU and the CPU are intelligently discharged across four 6mm diameter copper-composite heat pipes.
Dense copper fin stacks: The new generation copper finstack design provides more surface area for heat transfer to occur, improving its ability to expel heat and increase system performance.
Dynamic thermal control: A built-in gyroscope and accelerometer can tell if you are gaming on your desktop or lap, and it will automatically adjust the temperature and up your system’s performance while you’re gaming on your desktop.
UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES
Superior visuals: An OLED 4K display option beyond the standard 100% color gamut features 1ms response time, 100,000:1 contrast ratio, 60Hz refresh rate and 400-nit brightness so gamers can get lost in vivid, lifelike visuals and pulse-racing gameplay. Combining the ultra-high definition of our 4K display with the high contrast and wide color gamut of OLED, gamers will be able experience what visuals without compromise looks like.
Rapid refresh rate: For gamers who prioritize blazing-fast, uninterrupted gaming, the Alienware m15 offers 240Hz panel. The 240Hz panel includes sRGB 100% color gamut, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300-nit brightness, and 7ms response time.
ADVANCED EYE TRACKING
Available in OLED, 240Hz panel.
Enhanced interactions: UI elements fade when not making eye contact so you can get deeper into the game. Characters know when you’re looking at them and will respond accordingly.
New tracking tools: Learn, train and improve using eye tracking-enabled tools designed to measure your mini map awareness and help you learn when to pay attention to the clock.
Software support: Show viewers where you’re looking while streaming your favorite game. Tobii Ghost software supports all major streaming platforms and software.
Twitch-ready: Toggle between visualizations like heatmaps, shadow, and spotlight using our extension. You no longer need to move your mouse to show viewers what you’re talking about; just glance at it.
Premium touchpad: A new precision-point glass touchpad provides a high-quality gaming experience you can feel.
And with uniform lighting on each light diode, panel edge bleeding is as absent as your opponent’s win streak. By combining the ultra-high definition of our 4K display with the high-contrast and wide color gamut of OLED, we’ve created a gaming experience that refuses to compromise.
NEW ALIENWARE COMMAND CENTER
Rapid connectivity: Killer™ Networking E3000 2.5Gbps Ethernet NIC and Intel® 8265 WIFI ensure blazing-fast speed. This marks the first time a 38.1cm (15 inch) Alienware system offers up to 2.5Gbps Ethernet.
Outstanding battery life: A Lithium Ion 76WHr battery delivers longer uninterrupted gameplay.
