A NEW LEGEND IS BORN
Power reborn: With up to 10th gen Intel Core i9K processors enabling up to 8-cores and 16-threads of multi-threaded performance, the new Alienware m15 goes beyond its predecessor.
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH
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:
Vapor Chamber Technology: Alienware’s new Vapor Chamber Technology uses advanced methods to efficiently dissipate heat. The new Alienware m15 is engineered with a dedicated vapor chamber in between the CPU and copper heat pipes. It's all designed to manage the thermal flow and maximize performance. These chambers utilize the phase-changing nature of liquid to transfer heat more effectively than a solid piece of metal or copper heat pipes. Vapor Chambers are also more versatile than copper heat pipes in that they can be designed to be spread evenly across an entire chip that needs to be cooled.
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 132 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 3.5mm diameter copper-composite heat pipes.
Dense copper fin stacks: The new m15 has the greatest amount of copper material, by weight, dedicated to providing heat dissipation to core components than on any previous m15. The new m15 has also increased the size of its heat pipes by 40% to increase overall surface area and heat dissipation.
HYPEREFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION
The higher efficiency level results in capacity for increased workloads over time with reduced energy loss to heat.
The graphics story: An industry first, the m15 features unparalleled 12-phase graphics voltage regulation on configurations featuring the NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ 8GB GDDR6 with Max-Q Design to enable the highest performance possible for the longest time ever possible. Offering a 50% increase in voltage regulation phases to create our most efficient 15" design in Alienware history.
The processor story: Achieve up to 6-phase voltage regulation on configurations with a NVIDIA GeForce graphics card for higher performance gaming for longer periods of time. And with 25% larger CPU inductors, top-end performance is increased even further.
UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES
Rapid refresh rate: For gamers who prioritize blazing-fast, uninterrupted gaming, the Alienware m15 offers 300Hz and 144Hz panel options that are now twice as fast as the previous generation. The 300Hz panel includes sRGB 100% color gamut, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300-nit brightness, and 3ms response time. The 144Hz panel includes a 72% NTSC color gamut, 800:1 contrast ratio, 300-nit brightness, and 9ms response time.
Bring the game to life: Experience DCI-P3 color gamut during every moment of the game. With over 8,000,000 individually managed pixels the most chaotic moments on the battlefield feel crisp and responsive with its 1ms response time. And with uniform lighting on each light diode, panel edge bleeding is as absent as your opponent’s win streak.
Rapid connectivity: Killer Doubleshot™ Pro technology enables intelligent management of internet traffic by using both the wired and wireless connections in tandem to prioritize packets. Killer technology will automatically identify latency sensitive gaming and voice traffic and send it over the fastest interface. This new technology is made possible by combining Killer 2.5Gbps E3000 Wired Networking Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2x2) and Bluetooth 5.0
Improved keyboard: The incredibly responsive keyboard features 1.7mm travel with optional 4-zone RGB N-Key rollover and anti-ghosting technology. For an even more customizable option, upgrade to the premium keyboard with per-key Alien FX lighting.
Premium touchpad: A precision-point glass touchpad provides a high-quality gaming experience you can feel.
ALIENWARE COMMAND CENTER
Link a profile to a game and its settings will automatically apply whenever the game is launched, no matter where it’s launched from.
Create your own system overclocking profiles, then easily control their system performance.
Easily manage your FX lighting zones, edit peripheral settings and save new themes you can then assign for each game.
