A NEW LEGEND IS BORN

A NEW LEGEND IS BORN

At just 2.11kg, under 20.5mm thin, 360.3mm wide and 276.2mm long, the new Alienware m15 is lean and powerful. Designed from the ground up, the m15 features premium magnesium alloy materials that deliver weight savings while reducing thickness and delivering a stiffer, sturdy, chassis - all within a sleek aesthetic. This generation of the Alienware m15 includes an improved surface coating engineered to reduce fingerprint smearing and other typical stains without changing the hue or color. This stain resistant solution is a High Performance Clear Coat – a formula that lets you feel the cold and durable magnesium-alloy within our award-winning high-contrast color strategy. Available in Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon.

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

ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH

Our latest thermal technology, Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech, is an engineering approach where an Alienware system’s gaming performance is never compromised by means of electrical and mechanical methods while maintaining system stability during the highest performance states. This is managed using methods, not limited to, heat dissipation through creative thermal module designs, fan and fan motor design, as well as exhaust and intake layouts and overall airflow impedance. This generation has also been upgraded with an 9mm diameter increase in the CPU fan blades and 4mm diameter increase in the GPU fan blades. In addition, the new m15 offers improved airflow by directly channeling the cooler air onto the most sensitive cores of the system.

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

HYPEREFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION

Hyper-Efficient Voltage Regulation is the result of hardware engineering that enables graphics and/or processors to run at their highest levels of performance for extended lengths of time. This increases the number of total voltage regulation phases which thereby raises power signal efficiency and thermal efficiency per core.

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

UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES

The new Alienware m15 offers incredible display options and the thinnest left and right bezels (5.6mm) among all Alienware gaming laptops for gamers who demand the best visual experiences possible.

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.
GAME-ENHANCING FEATURES

GAME-ENHANCING FEATURES

Triple SSDs: The Alienware m15 offers optional RAID 0 triple SSD configurations. This means the two drives are recognized as a single large drive, maximizing transfer rates and enabling maximum storage and performance.

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

INTUITIVE IMMERSION

Ready for everything: Expand your world with a newly added media card reader. The new slot uses a push-push Micro-SD slot supporting UHS-11 HD312 media.

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.
