Available with Windows 10 Home: Gaming is better than ever on Windows 10, with games in 4K, DirectX 12, and streaming your gameplay*.
Powerhouse performance: The Alienware Area-51 delivers unbeatable performance with AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Record, game and stream simultaneously in 4K resolutions with options for 8, 12, and 16 core overclocked CPUs.
More memory: With optional 64GB of quad-channel DDR4 memory, you can create games that go beyond what you thought was possible. So whether you’re rendering a 3D model, editing photography, video or sound, know that your only limit is your imagination.
A gaming breakthrough: Alienware breaks the mold once again with world-bending graphics options including our first-ever dual AMD Radeon® RX Vega 64 graphics and first ever dual-liquid cooled NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics card configurations. You get the best of both worlds from the highest-performance AMD Crossfire™ or NVIDIA® SLI technologies--increased performance, low noise operation, and incredible 16K high-fidelity gaming. With the highest-grade professional graphics, this machine is ideal for users interested in using their graphical power for tasks beyond gaming, like cryptocurrency mining or heavy simulations using GPUs.
Second-gen triad chassis: A revolutionary new second generation triad chassis with a new retooled swinging cage supporting tool-less graphics and expansion cards for the first time ever on an Area-51, extending the life of your system with easy-to-access components. Also added is the PCI-e card door, which eliminates plastic retention with a screw-less rotation door. And by designing the system with a door built from a single, structural panel, internal components always stay secure.
Superior materials: The triad design is forged from an internal carbon powder-coated metal skeleton and features solid, staked-in rubber grommets. A large surface area holds an internal, stamped-metal panel with cable management ports and 5 storage bays.
Access your entire ecosystem: Experience seamless connectivity with a total of 14 USB ports, including four ports on the front panel. The largest available Alienware desktop cavity is also outfitted with efficient cable management clamps plus four independent HDD cable clips, graphics brackets and locks to keep your cards securely fastened.
Don’t just beat the heat. Annihilate it: The new chassis features high-quality cold copper plates and a 120x120 mm radiator to guarantee your system stays cool under pressure.
Epically efficient: Area-51 features the quietest pump, a double ceramic bearing, super durable dark gray nylon tubing and a 2850 RPM pump cycle guaranteed for up to 50,000 hours of use. Voltage regulators and passive heatsink chipsets prevent overheating.
