Reviews for the Alienware m15 R5, 5800H RTX 3060

80% Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Alienware and AMD make a good team as evidenced by the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition. The laptop delivered impressive overall performance and respectable gaming performance thanks to its AMD Ryzen processor and Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU. Plus, you get a beautiful display, powerful speakers and a comfy keyboard, in an all-too-stunning package. And while I’m pleased with the $1,779 price, I really would like to see this configuration with an RTX 3070 so it can give competing laptops more of a fight. As it stands, it can play games at playable frame rates, but it wasn’t blowing out the competition. And the battery life leaves much to be desired. If you’re looking for high frame rates, the $2,999 Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model is the way to go. If multitasking power and endurance is your thing, then the incredibly affordable $1,499 Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition is your laptop. But if you’re a fan of Alienware and AMD, the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition in its stylish glory is a great choice.

80% Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 review: 1080p AMD gaming with style
Source: CNet English
Old flagship gaming laptops never die, they just fade into the neutral zone. That's what's become of Alienware's m15 laptop line with the introduction of its thinner, more cutting-edge and far more expensive x15 line. The company seems to differentiate between the two by the display choices; it tags the Intel-based R6 models as the ones with "boundary-breaking visuals," which translates to... 1440p G-Sync display options. Along with the repositioning, Alienware brings back its first AMD CPU-based m15 in a l-o-o-o-ng time.

80% Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 (2021) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 gets plenty of things right considering its low price. On the inside, the RTX 3060 delivers solid mainstream gaming ability and the AMD Ryzen 5 5800H is a superb option for mainstream workloads and content-creation (if 74% Adobe RGB is ok), and the Alienware also serves up a good IPS display, a satisfying keyboard and bold, familiar aesthetics. In some areas, there are inevitable compromises. The trackpad and speakers both disappoint. External connectivity is good for gaming, but not for some workloads. Battery life is fine, if underwhelming, and this machine does get hot under duress. It’s thicker and heavier than plenty of 15.6in gaming laptops, too. These are not surprises, though, and they’re not issues that you’ll solve without lots more cash. The m15 R5 gets the most important things right making it an ideal candidate if you want a gaming laptop that won’t break the bank.

75% Alienware M15 R5 Ryzen Edition Review: The Right Parts At A High Price
Source: The Verge English
The M15 R5’s performance didn’t come into question during my testing. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing the great battery life AMD’s processors bring, and it’s great that this GPU can hold its own next to pricier components like the RTX 3070. But as a whole, Alienware missed the landing when it comes to value. If you want more features for your money, even if it involves swapping some of the M15 R5’s power for a QHD screen and better portability, you should look elsewhere. The M15 R5 isn’t the jaw-dropping value that it needed to be (and that I’d hoped it would be) to steer everyone away from the 2021 gaming laptop frontrunner (so far), the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15.

The overall design and feature set of this system may be familiar, but we won't turn up our noses at its Ryzen-based improvements. Between its performance and specs, the m15 Ryzen Edition is a good value. Our test configuration combines very capable gaming performance, class-leading processing efficiency, and a high-refresh-rate screen, all wrapped up in an appealing and unique chassis.

Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 Review: Zen 3 Laptop Invasion
Source: Hot Hardware English
In the end, it boils down to what a buyer values more: the overall package and premium aesthetic vs. raw specs and performance. There are some design choices here that contribute to a higher bottom line for the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5, including the higher 125 Watt thermal budget and the cooling system required to keep everything healthy and humming along at full speed. There is also plenty of flashy RGB-lit bling on hand, a high quality keyboard and premium materials, if these sort of trimmings are important to you. Buyers that hold raw performance-per-dollar as king might want to consider other options, but gamers that want to stand out in a crowd of boring black notebooks and still have plenty of high-powered gaming performance would do well to consider the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5.

Alienware m15 R5 Ryzen Edition Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Alienware m15 R5 Ryzen edition 15.6” gaming laptop with their updated “Legend” design that we’ll also see in the just announced Alienware m15 R6 with Intel 11th gen CPUs. The R5 is available with AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 7 5800H and Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core processors and NVIDIA RTX 3060 and 3070 graphics. Dell offers it with full HD 165Hz, full HD 360Hz and QHD 240Hz fast refresh IPS displays and your choice of a traditional zone backlit keyboard and the CherryMX per key RGB mechanical keyboard. The Alienware has 2 RAM slots and socketed Wi-Fi 6 card, which is a great improvement over the past few generations that had those parts soldered. We cover benchmarks, thermals and noise, and compare it with the last gen R4, Asus ROG Strix and Lenovo Legion 5 Pro.
