Alienware m15 R5 Ryzen Edition Laptop Review - More performance for less money

Gaming laptop with AMD Ryzen. The new m15 R5 is Alienware’s first laptop with AMD CPU and Nvidia GPU for years. We review the entry-level model with the Ryzen 7 5800H, RTX 3060, and the fast 165 Hz panel.
Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Alienware now offers the gaming laptop m15 R5 as Ryzen Edition with a modern AMD processor. It is, however, not only a simple update of the familiar m15 R4, but you get a completely redesigned chassis and changes in terms of the port situation. Alienware combines the Ryzen CPUs with current Nvidia GPUs, starting with the GeForce RTX 3060 and even the RTX 3070 as an option. The Alienware m15 is not the flagship laptop anymore, this position is now occupied by the new Alienware x15, which uses Intel CPUs and starts at 2199 Euros.

The price of the new m15 R5 is a bit lower than the previous Intel model and it starts at 1750 Euros for the base model with the Ryzen 7 5800H, GeForce RTX 3060, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD storage, and the fast 165 Hz FHD panel, which is exactly our review unit.

Alienware also introduced the new m15 R6 by now, which uses new Tiger Lake-H CPUs from Intel. It uses the same new design and also starts at 1750 Euros with the slower Core i5-11400H (6 cores). A spec with the more comparable Core i7-11800H is 100 Euros more expensive than our AMD model.

Case - m15 R5 uses familiar design

The chassis of the m15 R5 is completely new, but Alienware still keeps the familiar design language. The Ryzen Edition is only available in a dark gray color (Dark Side of the Moon) and you get the familiar lighting elements at the rear. There is a new darker strip at the front and the sides, which is supposed to make the design more appealing. All in all, the notebook now looks a bit more filigree than its predecessor. The semi-matt surfaces are nice to touch and fingerprints are not a huge problem.

The quality of the chassis does not quite meet our expectations. The build quality itself is very good and the base unit in particular is very sturdy, but you hear loud creaking noises when you open and close the lid. The lid itself is also more flexible and pressure on the back results in picture distortions, but this should not be a major issue in practice. The hinges are well-adjusted; you can open the lid with one hand and there is hardly any bouncing.

This new chassis is also used for the new Alienware m15 R6, which is equipped with modern Tiger Lake-H processors from Intel.

Thanks to the special hinge design, which is not located at the rear of the device, the Alienware m15 R5 is by far the deepest device in the comparison group. Width and height on the other hand are pretty comparable, but the m15 is also the heaviest device at almost 2.5 kg. You also have to consider 780 grams for the 240W power adapter when you travel.

Connectivity - AMD Alienware without Thunderbolt

The port selection is worse compared to the old model. There are no more USB ports at the left side and both the microSD reader as well as the Graphics Amplifier port are gone. Gamers at least still get a fast Ethernet connector (2.5 Gbps). Thunderbolt is not supported; the USB-C port on the rear supports DisplayPort output but cannot be used to charge the device. The m15 R6 with Intel CPUs has Thunderbolt support, but the ports are otherwise identical.

Communication

The Wi-Fi module Killer AX1650x supports the fast Wi-Fi 6 standard and manages high transfer rates in our standardized Wi-Fi test with the router Netgear Nighthawk RAX120, even though the previous m15 R4 was even a bit faster. You can also use the fast Ethernet connection (2.5 Gbps) for more reliability when you play games.

Maintenance

There is no dedicated maintenance, but the bottom panel is only secured with a couple of Philips screws and is easy to remove. You get access to both RAM slots as well as the two M.2 slots for SSDs. Contrary to the previous m15 R4, however, you can only use smaller M.2-2242 modules and the second tray was missing on our test unit. You can also replace the Wi-Fi module from Killer and clean the fans.

Warranty

The Alienware m15 R5 is only shipped with a one-year warranty by default, which also includes an on-site service. You can extend the duration all the way up to 4 years for an additional ~500 Euros.

Input Devices - Mechanical keyboard is optional

The input devices did not change, but this is no problem. The default chiclet keyboard with 1.7 mm key travel is very comfortable and pretty quiet. You can configure the 4-zone illumination quite extensively. There is also an option (100 Euros) for the mechanical keyboard we already reviewed on the m15 R4. It offers a much crisper feedback and per-key illumination, but it is also much louder. 

The clickpad is not generously sized for modern standards at 10.5 x 6 cm, but cursor movements work very well, only the clicking sound is a bit loud. However, you will probably use an external mouse for your gaming sessions anyway, so this should not be a big issue.

Display - m15 with 165 Hz panel

The display selection has changed a bit compared to the old m15 R4. You get a 1080p screen with fast response times and 165 Hz refresh rate by default, but you can also upgrade to a QHD panel with 240 Hz and G-Sync support. The Intel model m15 R6 even gets an option for a 1080p panel with 360 Hz.

The panel in our review unit is provided by AU Optronics and manages decent results. It is not one of the brightest models, but the subjective picture quality of the matte screen is very good and it convinces with very fast response times and high refresh rates, which are very important for a gaming laptop. Very good: Our test unit did not suffer from any backlight bleeding.

* ... smaller is better

We determine an average brightness of 321 cd/m², so the new panel is slightly brighter than before. The black value is decent and results in a good contrast ratio of more than 1200:1.

The calibration is already very good out of the box and there is no visible color cast. There are no major outliers in the color checker, either, and an additional calibration by the user is not really necessary. It will only improve the results slightly (our profile is available as a free download in the box above) and all colors (except for 100% red) show a DeltaE2000 deviation below 3. The sRGB gamut is covered completely, so you can edit pictures/videos with this panel.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.4 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.2 ms rise
↘ 2.8 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15315 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Thanks to the matte surface, you can use the laptop outdoors, but it is only really comfortable in the shade. The viewing angle stability of the IPS screen is very good.

Performance - AMD Ryzen & Nvidia GeForce

Alienware’s Command Center offer multiple settings for the performance, power consumption, and overclocking. We used the default settings (Overclocking: Off, Power: Balanced, Thermal: Balanced) for our measurements and benchmarks.

Processor - Ryzen 7 5800H

Our test unit is equipped with the modern Ryzen 7 5800H processor with 8 cores (16 threads) with a maximum clock of up to 4.4 GHz. More technical information about the processor is available here. The Alienware m15 R5 allows a consumption of 65W for a couple of seconds before it stabilizes at 54W, which results in 8x 3.6 GHz. The m15 R5 is also available with the Ryzen 9 5900HX (also 8 cores, up to 4.6 GHz) if you need a faster CPU.

The performance of the processor is very good and much better than the old Core i9-10980HK in the Alienware m15 R4 and it is pretty much identical to the brand-new Tiger Lake-H i7-11800H in the Asus TUF Gaming F15, even though it requires much more power (>70W) in this laptop. The performance is not reduced on battery power.

Storage Devices

The small M.2-2242 SSD in our review unit is provided by Toshiba and has a storage capacity of 512 GB. The NVMe-SSD is attached via PCIe 3.0-x4, but does not manage great results in the benchmarks. However, you will hardly notice the difference to a faster drive when you play games and PCIe 4.0 is not supported, either. More SSD benchmarks are available in our tech section.

GPU Performance - GeForce RTX 3060 with 125 Watts

GPU-Z: Radeon RX Vega
GPU-Z: Radeon RX Vega
GPU-Z: GeForce RTX 3060
GPU-Z: GeForce RTX 3060

Simple workloads are handled by the integrated and efficient Radeon RX Vega 8 and the laptop will automatically switch to the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 GPU via Nvidia Optimus. We reported that the m15 R5 was equipped with a slower RTX 3070, but there are no problems with the RTX 3060. It is one of the fastest implementations of the RTX 3060 with a TGP of 125 Watts and a maximum clock of 1875 MHz. 

The GPU performance is very good and meets our expectations. It is about 30-40% slower than the RTX 3070 (140W) in the Alienware m15 R4 depending on the test, which is also available for the m15 R5. The performance is also stable and the 3DMark stress test (Time Spy) is easily passed. On battery power, however, the power consumption of the GPU is heavily throttled from 125W to just 30W, which means the GPU performance drops by 75%.

As we mentioned before, you can get the RTX 3070 for the AMD notebook, but it is mainly interesting in combination with the higher-resolution QHD panel. The Intel model m15 R6 on the other hand can be equipped with the RTX 3080, but only in combination with the fast 360 Hz display.

Gaming Performance

The GeForce RTX 3060 is a very good choice for the default FHD panel, and even demanding titles like Cyberpunk 2077 run smoothly at maximum details. The gaming performance of the Ryzen 7 5800H is pretty much on par with the new Tiger Lake-H Core i7-11800H and it is also stable in longer workloads, which is shown by the Witcher 3 loop. There is a significant performance drop on battery power; the fps in Witcher 3 (Ultra), for example, drops by more than 70% (76 vs. 22 fps). More gaming benchmarks with the GeForce RTX 3060 are available in our tech section.
