THE STUFF OF LEGENDS
THE STUFF OF LEGENDS
At just 2.11kg, under 20.5mm thin, 360.3mm wide and 276.2mm long, the Alienware m15 is lean and powerful. Designed from the ground up, the m15 features premium magnesium alloy materials that deliver weight savings while reducing thickness and delivering a stiffer, sturdy, chassis - all within a sleek aesthetic. This generation of the Alienware m15 includes an improved surface coating engineered to reduce fingerprint smearing and other typical stains without changing the hue or color. This stain resistant paint formula is a High-Performance Clear Coat – a formula that lets you feel the durable magnesium alloy within our award-winning industrial design. Available in Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon.

Power reborn: With up to 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9k processors enabling up to 8-cores and 16-threads of multi-threaded performance, the latest generation of Alienware m15 goes beyond its predecessor.
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH
Our latest thermal technology, Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech, is an engineering approach where an Alienware system’s gaming performance is never compromised by means of electrical and mechanical methods while maintaining system stability during the highest performance states. This is managed using methods, not limited to, heat dissipation through creative thermal module designs, fan and fan motor design, as well as exhaust and intake layouts and overall airflow impedance. This generation has also been upgraded with an 9mm diameter increase in the CPU fan blades and 4mm diameter increase in the GPU fan blades. In addition, the m15 offers improved airflow by directly channeling the cooler air onto the most sensitive cores of the system.

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:

Vapor Chamber Technology: Alienware’s Vapor Chamber Technology uses advanced methods to efficiently dissipate heat. The Alienware m15 is engineered with a dedicated vapor chamber in between the CPU and copper heat pipes. It's all designed to manage the thermal flow and maximize performance. These chambers utilize the phase-changing nature of liquid to transfer heat more effectively than a solid piece of metal or copper heat pipes. Vapor Chambers are also more versatile than copper heat pipes in that they can be designed to be spread evenly across an entire chip that needs to be cooled.

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 132 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 four 3.5mm diameter copper-composite heat pipes.

Dense copper fin stacks: The latest R4 generation of the m15 has the greatest amount of copper material, by weight, dedicated to providing heat dissipation to core components than the previous R2 generation. The heat pipes have also increased by 40% for enhanced overall surface area and heat dissipation.
HYPER-EFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION
HYPER-EFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION
Hyper-efficient voltage regulation is the result of hardware engineering that enables graphics and/or processors to run at their highest levels of performance for extended lengths of time. This increases the number of total voltage regulation phases which thereby raises power signal efficiency and thermal efficiency per core.

The higher efficiency level results in capacity for increased workloads over time with reduced energy loss to heat.

The graphics story: An industry first, the m15 features unparalleled 12-phase graphics voltage regulation on all configurations based on the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30-series family to enable the highest performance possible for the longest periods of time. The latest R4 generation of the m15 offers a 50% increase in voltage regulation phases from the previous R2 generation to create our most efficient 15" design in Alienware history.

The processor story: Achieve up to 6-phase voltage regulation on configurations with a NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics card for higher performance gaming for longer periods of time. And with 25% larger CPU inductors than the R2 generation of the m15, top-end performance is increased even further.
UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES
UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES
The Alienware m15 offers incredible display options and the thinnest left and right bezels (5.6mm) among all Alienware gaming laptops for gamers who demand the best visual experiences possible.

Rapid refresh rate: For gamers who prioritize blazing-fast, uninterrupted gaming, the latest generation of the Alienware m15 offers 300Hz and 144Hz panel (coming first half of 2021) options that are now twice as fast as the previous R2 generation. The 300Hz panel includes sRGB 100% color gamut, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300-nit brightness, and 3ms response time. The 144Hz FHD panel includes a 72% NTSC color gamut, 800:1 contrast ratio, 300-nit brightness, and 7ms response time. Additionally, it enables NVIDIA® G-SYNC® technology to synchronize the refresh rate of your display with the performance your graphics card is capable of for smoother gameplay during high-speed action.

Superior visuals: An OLED 4K UHD display option beyond the standard 100% color gamut features 1ms response time, 100,000:1 contrast ratio, 60Hz refresh rate and 400-nit brightness so gamers can get lost in vivid, lifelike visuals and pulse-racing gameplay. Combining the ultra-high definition of our 4K display with the high contrast and wide color gamut of OLED, gamers will be able experience what visuals without compromise looks like.

Reduced blue light emissions: The laptop reduces blue light rays with a unique technology that lowers the exposure to high-energy visible light to keep you deep in the game without reducing image quality. Available on the OLED panel.

Bring the game to life: With the OLED panel, you can experience a new True Black HDR 500 rating with a DCI-P3 color gamut during every moment of the game. With over 8,000,000 individually managed pixels the most chaotic moments on the battlefield feel crisp and responsive with its 1ms response time. And with uniform lighting on each light diode, panel edge bleeding is as absent as your opponent’s win streak.
GAME-ENHANCING FEATURES
GAME-ENHANCING FEATURES
High-performance storage: The Alienware m15 is capable of supporting RAID 0 (Dual SSD Stripe) configurations. This means that two drives can be configured as a single large drive, maximizing transfer rates and enabling maximum storage and performance. If you want to add even more storage space, the Alienware m15 R4 is capable of supporting a maximum of up to three M.2 NVMe solid state drives.

Rapid connectivity: Killer Doubleshot™ Pro technology enables intelligent management of internet traffic by using both the wired and wireless connections in tandem to prioritize packets. Killer technology will automatically identify latency sensitive gaming and voice traffic and send it over the fastest interface. This new technology is made possible by combining Killer™ Ethernet E3100X 2.5Gbps Wired Networking with Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i 802.11ax 2x2 Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 5.1.
