Dell Alienware Aurora R15: Refreshed gaming PC presented with improved cooling, a new PSU, upgraded processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs
Dell has previewed a new version of the Alienware Aurora R15 gaming desktop ahead of a late autumn release. According to the company's press release, the adoption of 13th Gen Intel Core processors necessitated several cooling solution improvements, including a 240 mm AIO and five 120 mm fans. Similarly, Dell has equipped all Alienware Aurora R15 configurations with hexagonal side-venting to generate additional airflow.
Supposedly, these improvements allow 13th Gen Intel Core processors to run at 5 degrees less than their predecessors while receiving 58% more power. Incidentally, the thermal improvements should yield 19% improved airflow, as well as 66% quieter CPU fans and 9% quieter GPU fans under load.
Still, Dell has equipped the new Alienware Aurora R15 with a 1,350 W power supply to support NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4090. Alternatively, Dell will offer the machine with AMD Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, the exact variants of which are unknown at this stage.
Similarly, Dell has not confirmed what Intel processors will be available, nor whether the GeForce RTX 4090 will be the RTX 40 series' only representative. Unfortunately, Dell has confirmed that the upgraded Alienware Aurora R15 will launch in North America later this autumn. Prices have not been revealed yet, either.
