Dell and Alienware continue showcasing their commitment to gaming innovations at CES.
Kicking things off with the new redesigned Dell G5 15 SE (Special Edition), the latest product in Dell’s G Series portfolio for new and price-conscious gamers.
This is the first Dell G Series laptop to feature 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 4000 H-Series Mobile Processors (up to 8-cores, 16-threads), paired with the new AMD Radeon RX 5600M GPUs. These two AMD chips work together using AMD SmartShift technology to optimize performance for the task at hand by automatically and intelligently shifting power between the Ryzen processor and Radeon GPU as needed, giving you what you want at each moment of gameplay.
A couple of new features are the “Game Shift” macro key, which allows one key quick launch of game-ready settings for enhanced performance that reduces latency and sharpens images for fast gaming. Also, the Alienware Command Center offers a hub for controlling in-game and peripheral lighting settings, integrating nahimic 3D audio to provide a 360 degree sound experience with Audio Recon overlay, and providing a central game library for easy customization.
The redesigned G5 15 SE features a modern “fighter plane” look wrapped in a premium iridescent silver finish with metallic accents. Along with a 15.6” FHD display panel, the new G5 15 SE has an optional 144Hz refresh rate, optional 4-zone RGB keyboard with WASD and optional 68WHr battery to keep the good times rolling. Dell is making this new G5 15 SE truly accessible with a starting price of $799.99 USD beginning in mid-April.
In addition to the redesigned Dell G5 15 SE, fans of Alienware can now game on the Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor (AW2521HF) in the iconic Legend ID.
First, its 240Hz refresh rate is twice as fast as most gaming monitors on the market, coupled with a true 1ms gray-to-gray response time that ensures every pixel is ready for every frame, thanks to the new fast IPS technology. AMD FreeSync Premium technology and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility provides a buttery-smooth gaming experience with virtually no screen tearing or blurring.
When combined with a native FHD resolution, a 24.5” monitor delivers better and clearer images. Along with the Legend design, the monitor has a thinner, adjustable stand with height-adjustment markers as well as tapered, vertically slim legs that fit neatly under a keyboard. This monitor starts at $499.99 USD and will be available starting March 11.
Lastly, Dell announced the Alienware Second Screen, a new concept software that allows gamers the ability to view their PC performance stats on their phone. Leveraging the underlying technology that powers Dell Mobile Connect, Alienware Second Screen synchronizes with Alienware Command Center to present CPU, GPU and RAM diagnostics in real-time on a gamer’s connected phone.
Dell also shared some concept devices.
The Alienware Concept UFO is a gaming device featuring an 8” screen with 1900×1200 resolution. It also includes detachable controllers, so you can game in a range of modes: as one unit, with controllers attached to the screen; separating the controllers and using the kickstand on a surface to game or stream your favorite show (for example, a table, or a tray on an airplane or train); or connect it to an external display and play using the detached controller, or use a mouse and keyboard as you would any other PC.
Using 10th Generation Intel Core processors along with WiFi, Bluetooth, and Thunderbolt for high performance gaming, networking and connectivity, Concept UFO offers on-the-go performance.
Concept Duet is a dual screen device with two 13.4-inch displays that adapt to the way you work and play. While it may look like an ordinary notebook, Concept Duet would allow you to take a pen and touch-enabled second screen experience with you wherever you are. Features have been incorporated to create intuitive interactions with the device and enhance the user experience. Devices like this will help customers to multitask more efficiently. Consider the productivity benefits of being able to compare and edit images, scenes or documents on each display.
Concept Ori is a foldable device which gives you a familiar-sized, 13” screen that folds into something you can easily carry around. It offers similar experiences and benefits to dual screens, but with the added advantage of no seams. This “seamless” experience is perfect for reading articles in vertical mode and scrolling down the page, watching movies and more. You could switch between the single screen experience with stunning visuals, your favorite apps, and great pen experience; or a dual screen experience that opens new avenues for multitasking and notetaking – and everything in between.
As these are concept devices, Dell is not sharing availability or roadmap information, pricing or specs right now.
