Tools gamers need

Tools gamers need

The Alienware 17 has been upgraded to give gamers the tools they need to be the best.

Killer™ Wireless: Killer DoubleShot™ Pro provides a wired and wireless networking setup that prioritizes internet traffic and data streaming to applications most important to you. Optional Killer 1550 allows up to 1.73 Gbps max throughput for even more high-speed gaming.

Alienware Graphics Amplifier support: Enable future-proofing of upgradeable full length, dual-wide graphics and additional 4-port USB 3.0 hub for added peripherals. We’ve added a PCIe x4 Gen 3 connection with dedicated throughput for connectivity that’s superior even to a Thunderbolt.

Thunderbolt Type-C port: This multi-use port is ready to be used as a USB 3.1 port, offering 10Gbps of data transfer, a Thunderbolt connection capable of 40Gbps, or even a DisplayPort enabling various monitors supporting the DP protocol.

Longer battery life: The Alienware 17 contains a 99 Whr* lithium-ion battery. We offer the maximum amount of battery power legally allowed with the 99Whr battery – storing and delivering more power than any other laptop for longer uninterrupted gameplay. The new Alienware 17 can support up to 10 hours of battery life, as tested with the 99 Whr battery and an FHD LCD configuration.*

Solid-state drive: Load your games faster, get shock and vibration protection, better speed and capacity, and much more. Solid-state drives make virtually no noise and have fewer failures because they have no moving parts. A quieter system means you can better pinpoint every footstep your enemy makes.

Hear every battle cry: Due to the upgraded design, a larger and more effective speaker box has been installed, improving audio output for a clearer and more dramatic gaming experience.

Clear the desktop and the board: Avoid excess cables and embrace the “desktop mode” design, where most of your critical connections and ports are in the back and out of the way.
