It was to be expected that Alienware, Dell’s premium PC gaming brand, won’t sit idly for too long after NVIDIA announces its most powerful GPUs to date. And that is exactly the point that today’s announcement of the new Aurora gaming desktops is driving home.
The latest refresh of the popular PC family is called the Alienware Aurora R11, and besides the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 GPUs, it also relies on the latest CPUs from Intel, going all the way up to the Core i9 10900KF.
But if you prefer AMD, Dell’s subsidiary also refreshed the Aurora R10 Ryzen Edition range with NVIDIA’s newest ray-tracing-capable graphics cards. Right now, you can already order a configuration going up to the 16-core machine that is the Ryzen 9 3950X. In either case, you can count on a futuristic, custom-build case, up to 64GB of RAM and a maximum of 2TB of SSD space.
Alienware is so far offering Light Light and Dark Side of the Moon variants which only differ in terms of case colors, as their name so playfully explain. Prices start at just over $1,000 but of course, expect to pay several times that figure if you’re aiming for the very best components Alienware is currently able to procure and assemble.
