In a garage around Miami was born, the beauty of 25 years ago, Alienware, one of the first companies, if not the first ever, to have in mind PC da gaming that overturned the traditional idea of a gray metal box of the time.
On the occasion of the important anniversary, Alienware took the opportunity to renew Aurora, Pre-assembled PC introduced in 2016 and updated in 2019 according to the “LEGEND ID” design language that has marked some of the subsequent products, such as the line of gaming monitors presented in the last two years.
With the new Aurora, Alienware brings significant changes to the entire chassis both on the aesthetic and on the performance front, with a front mesh that it greatly improves the airflow and consequently ensures the maximum silence possible, since due to the lower operating temperatures the fans will have to run at lower speeds.
We then find, next to the chassis of the new Aurora, one optional transparent window (of which, however, we do not know the material) that allows you to look inside the system and a renewed internal RGB lighting, with a clear reference to eSports where the players’ systems are visible and on display during the streams.
Finally, among other options, here is one magnetic cover to cover the cables and ports on the rear of the chassis, for an even cleaner design ready to be placed in the foreground.
Internal ventilation is entrusted to up to four 120mm fans in higher-end configurations. Alienware claims to have achieved up to 16% more silence than the idle generation, up to 9% under load and up to 15% in overclocking. In addition, the internal volume has been increased by 50%. All this allows you to get a up to 5% performance increase with an RTX 3090 in Time Spy compared to the previous Aurora R12.
The dimensions also grow, passing from 482 (height) x 223 (width) x 432 (length) mm of the Aurora R10 / R12 to 510 (height) x 225 (width) x 589 (length) mm, while the weight maximum drops from 17.8 kg to 15.5 kg.
There is no news on prices and exact configurations at this time, but we can expect more details on the new generation of the Alienware Aurora to coincide with the announcement of the 12th generation Intel Core “Alder Lake” processors in early November.
