Power that makes it all possible.
When paired with the Alienware Graphics Amplifier, powered by an upgradable desktop GPU, you can transform the Alienware 13 into the ultimate at-home experience. Just plug in and get lost in the vivid display and massive performance boost of desktop-class graphics!
The holy grail of gaming.
Killer combo: Stay light while you battle opponents on the go, and immerse yourself fully in the desktop experience when you’re stationed at home base. Matched with the Alienware 13, the Graphics Amplifier provides a perfect solution for the gamer who wants the best of portability and performance. When gaming away from home, the new NVIDIA® Geforce® GTX TITAN X graphics card with 12GB of memory delivers exceptional, immersive 4K gaming.
Enhanced action: The Graphics Amplifier boosts any gaming experience with a truly impressive 375W of dedicated graphics power and increased support for full-length, dual-wide cards. Crank up the intensity on your gameplay without sacrificing mobility when you pair it with Alienware 13.
New look, improved performance.
Keep your cool: The Alienware 13’s main thermal module consists of copper heat pipes and plates set on the GPU and a CPU – optimizing heat dissipation so your graphics card can use up as much wattage as it desires, and the chassis won’t get too hot during battle.
Your keyboard advantage: Built to stand up to the most intense gaming usage, the premium reinforced keyboard includes a metal plate built-in behind the keys, providing uniform feedback and responsiveness for all keys while typing, and the travel distance between each key is engineered to facilitate flawless, smooth motion.
Rigorously tested for robust durability: Alienware laptops are tested to stand up to tens of thousands of functions : power button pushes, hinges opening and closing, twists, turns, or up to 10 million keystrokes. We test hard so you can game hard, reliably.
Clear, concise, and efficient.
Crystal clear visuals: The Alienware 13 is the first ever gaming notebook with an optional OLED panel, which produces more vivid and lifelike colors at a contrast ratio of 100,000:1. Whether you’re traversing an alien forest or diving for loot in a dark and dreary dungeon, image details stay sharp and appear brighter thanks to an exceptional black representation. With a higher color gamut (Adobe 104 %), a more true-to-life color range is created, making every detail pop.
Superb response time: Overtake your opponent with an incredible 1ms response time on OLED display, the fastest on any Alienware notebook yet. A higher refresh reduces artifacts/tearing and allows for more frames/sec so every punch, shot, and lightning bolt lands with precise timin g.
Engineered for excellence.
