See how your favorite games run on thegraphics card and processor. The Full HD and Quad HD frame rates are based on independent tests by the benchmarking experts at UL.
Full HD 1080p
Quad HD 1440p
This model of the Alienware does not meet the recommended hardware requirements and testing (maintaining 90FPS) for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
3DMark Time Spy is a popular and effective benchmarking tool for rating gaming performance. It is used by millions of gamers, hundreds of hardware sites and many leading manufacturers. The higher the score, the better the performance and user experience. Note that the frames per second numbers indicate the typical FPS. You can read more about UL's benchmark tests here: Guide to Scores
Level 1 - (Step Into the Game) The system is capable of providing a good user experience in the vast majority of 1080p games with medium – standard settings.
Level 2 - (Next Level Of Gaming) You can comfortably play all current 1080p games with high graphics settings. All products on level 2 and above are ready for VR.
Level 3 - (Kick it Into High Gear) You can play all popular game titles with the same graphics setting as Level 2 and many games at max graphics setting at 1440p resolution.
Level 4 - (Elite Gaming Experience) Virtually all games run 60 FPS or more at 1440p resolution with highest graphics settings, and many games also run excellent in 4K resolution.
Not every system and configuration will be tested explicitly. The scores and data presented are provided by UL and are an estimate of expected performance. UL tests all hardware in controlled conditions. Benchmark results may vary on some systems but have a precision with a margin of 3 percent. Changes in software, such as system updates, driver updates, or changes to the game may affect performance. In very special cases, the device is of a nature that does not deliver consistent performance.
All PCs are tested with games running in 1080p resolution with medium quality settings. The more powerful PCs are also tested with games running in 1440p resolution with the highest graphical settings.
