Alienware launches AMD gaming notebook after more than 1 decade

Alienware this week announced the release of the high-end gaming notebook m15 Ryzen Edition R5. According to Dell, the model will be the first with an AMD processor since the Aurora mALX, released in 2007.

AMD chips were not used as much because of the not so good performance for games (especially when compared to Intel), despite the excellent performance for other tasks. However, in recent years that premise has changed and brands like Asus and Lenovo have started to equip their PCs with the parts.

The 15-inch computer is equipped with a Ryzen 9 5900H octa-core CPU and an Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU. It has a full HD screen with a 360 Hz refresh rate (in addition to the 240 Hz and 165 Hz versions) and battery life. 86 Wh.


The notebook also has 3200 Mhz DDR4 RAM, 2.5 GBps Ethernet port, 4 USB ports (2 USB-A 3.2 Gen 1; 1 USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 and another USB-C 3.2 Gen 2), as well as a headphone jack by ear. The machine features Cryo-Tech cooling technology, mechanical keyboard developed by Cherry and HDMI port with 4K resolution.

The Alienware model goes on sale on April 20 in the United States from US$ 1,700 (about R$ 9,500 in direct conversion), according to the website The Verge. There is still no information on whether he will arrive in Brazil.
