Features and Design
A NEW LEGEND IS BORN
HARDWIRED FOR HIGHER PERFORMANCE
In addition to the performance innovation from hyper-efficient voltage regulation, the new Alienware m17 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 86 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 three 6mm diameter and one 8mm 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
Despite its thin, lightweight frame, the m17 boasts a commanding 17.3" screen and rapid refresh rate options.
Uninterrupted gaming: For gamers who prioritize blazing-fast gameplay, the Alienware m17 offers a 144Hz panel option that features a 9ms response time, Eyesafe® technology and Tobii eye tracking.
Low blue light technology: With the 144Hz display panel comes with first-to-market Eyesafe® Display Technology that reduces harmful blue light rays without color distortion. This unique panel lowers the exposure to high-energy visible light to keep you deep in the game while maintaining incredible image quality.
ADVANCED EYE TRACKING
Available in 144Hz panel option.
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.
NEW ALIENWARE COMMAND CENTER
Rapid connectivity: Optional Killer™ Networking E3000 2.5Gbps Ethernet NIC and Intel® 8265 WIFI ensure blazing-fast speed. This marks the first time a 17" Alienware system offers up to 2.5Gbps Ethernet. Base setup also includes Killer™ Ethernet and Killer™ E2600 Gigabit Ethernet controller.
Outstanding battery life: A Lithium Ion 76WHr battery delivers longer uninterrupted gameplay.
