Dell has refreshed the Alienware m15 to feature Intel Comet Lake-H and NVIDIA Ampere mobile offerings. The Alienware m15 R4 continues to offer vapor chamber cooling, up to 4 TB of PCIe storage, and also comes with an OLED panel that is HDR500 compliant.

We had many good things to say about the Alienware m15 R3 last year, particularly with respect to its vapor chamber cooling. At CES 2021, Dell is refreshing the Alienware m15 to include Comet Lake-H and NVIDIA Ampere mobile GPUs.

The Alienware m15 R4 offers a choice of Intel 10th gen Core i7-10870H and Core i9-10980HK processor options along with RAM options ranging from 8 GB to 32 GB. Buyers also get to choose from a range of single and RAID storage configurations adding up to a total of 4 TB of PCIe NVMe storage.

Dell said that the Alienware m15 R4 uses 66 fan blades each for the CPU and the GPU with the former also getting a vapor chamber for added cooling efficiency. Irrespective of the configuration, Dell has endowed the m15 R4 with a 6-phase VRM design for the CPU and a 12-phase design for the GPU.

Display options include a 15.6-inch FHD LCD or a 4K OLED panel. The OLED panel supports HDR500 and sports a 1 ms response time, 400 nits brightness while also offering Tobii eyetracking and 100% DCI-P3 coverage.

The Alienware m15 R4 will be available from January 26 at prices starting from US$2,149.99.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
