Help Me Choose: Alienware Laptop Graphics Cards

Whether you’re gaming, streaming, or editing graphics on your Alienware laptop, the quality of the graphics you experience is only as good as your graphics card.

Along with the computer monitor itself, the graphics card determines the level of detail of the image that will be displayed, as well as the contrast, resolution and overall gaming graphics.

How Graphics Cards Work
Discrete graphics cards can provide better performance as compared to integrated graphics cards. Discrete graphics cards are separate from the motherboard and include a specialized graphics processing unit (GPU). Because of their onboard GPU, discrete graphics cards don’t have to share the CPU with other programs.

Discrete graphics cards include the memory of their own, measured in gigabytes (GB). Graphics memory is used by the GPU to accelerate graphics performance, store textures using game graphics, and make gaming, movies and other entertainment intensely realistic. High-performance graphics cards require a significant amount of graphics memory.

How to Get the Highest Performance
In Alienware PCs, two or more graphics cards can be linked together to boost total gaming performance. NVIDIA® graphics cards use a technology called Scalable Link Interface (SLI™) to enable two or more cards to work together when processing graphics data. Naturally, having two graphics cards working together to render graphics increases the available frame rate and provides more depth and detail. With the added horsepower of dual graphics cards, you can use higher resolution displays and enjoy high-definition (HD) gaming without sacrificing graphics performance.

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX And RTX™ 

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX And RTX™ graphics cards are powered by advanced GPU architectures for both gamers and creators. Get truly next-gen performance and features for the ultimate gaming experience.

One reason why NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX And RTX™ graphics cards are so powerful is because they have dedicated graphics memory. This means that the graphics card’s graphical processing unit (GPU) has its own source of memory and doesn’t use the memory that your computer uses. This design frees up system memory, which helps improve the overall system and graphics performance of your computer.

In addition, as a dedicated graphics card, the physical hardware is a separate component that plugs into an expansion slot on the motherboard. You can easily remove and replace the graphics card if you need to.
