Amplified graphics. Advanced gaming.
Graphics powerhouse: When gaming on the go, the AMD or NVIDIA® based graphics feature up to 8GB of GDDR5 standard memory, for smooth, crisp, responsive performance that will keep you immersed and engaged. By increasing your graphics performance the Alienware Graphics Amplifier can unlock the exhilarating world of VR gaming on your notebook. In order to have the best Virtual Reality experience we recommend using Alienware with the specs recommended by HTC and Vive.
Cutting edge craftsmanship.
Sleek. Solid. Aluminum.: Displays this good require serious protection, so we encased them in an anodized aluminum shell that matches the hinge strength and structural rigidity and boasts a new, iconic design.
Cooler with copper: Churn out maximum power while keeping your cool. Copper thermal modules allow your graphics cards and processors to perform at the highest level while the heat pipes and blocks prevent overheating.
Guaranteed up to 10 million keystrokes: Experience the sensation of uniform feedback with the reinforced steel plate of our TactX keyboard, which also protects internal components from debris. Launch shortcuts to applications or even macros in-game, thanks to five customizable keys capable of up to 15 unique commands, programmed via the Alienware Command Center software.
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, and up to 1 million touchpad strokes. We test hard so you can game hard, reliably.
Engineered for extreme action.
Dynamic overclocking: Alienware 15 automatically overclocks and monitors internal temperatures to keep your system running cool when the action is hot and deliver performance precisely when you need it.
Newer, faster, better: Performance gets a massive shot in the arm with the introduction of new PCIe SSDs in Alienware 15. Capable of up to 5.3 times the bandwidth of previous generation SATA SSDs, games, media and everything else you loves loads faster, and gets you into the action sooner.
DDR4 memory: Alienware 15 supports DDR4 running at 2133MHz and has overclock potential via the BIOS, so you have the opportunity to crank out maximum performance.
Extend your reach.
Blow your hair back: Use your USB Type- C™ port as a Thunderbolt™ 3 port, and experience 40Gbps (4x the USB 3.1 protocol) or drive 4K displays as if the port were a Thunderbolt™ or DisplayPort. Or maximize your options by daisychaining your Thunderbolt™ devices together.
Better, faster, clearer: Run 4K resolution content @60Hz using the new HDMI 2.0 port, for better resolution, smoother graphics and an overall upgrade in awesomeness.
Engage your senses.
Sound and fury: Rich, impressive Alienware 15 audio is powered by Klipsch and Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi technology. Look directly into the eyes of your friends and opponents with a 2.0MP Full HD webcam and let the banter flow with a dual microphone array.
