Dell Aurora will be one of the first PCs to ship with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, 2080, and 2080 Ti graphics
Nvidia took its sweet time to unveil the proper successor to the GeForce Pascal series today while the rest of the world was yearning for it to finally become official. Now that GeForce Turing has been confirmed, OEMs and system builders everywhere can at last begin advertising their respective products updated with GeForce RTX graphics.
Dell was quick to jump in on the announcement without even waiting a full day from Nvidia's press reveal. The manufacturer will be updating its Alienware Aurora desktop PC with next generation graphics from Nvidia for a launch in October. Thus, Dell could be the best chance for enthusiast gamers who may be wanting the latest and greatest in consumer graphics as soon as possible. Pre-built PCs are less likely to run out of stock when compared to standalone graphics cards at launch.
Nothing else has changed about the chassis as Dell will only be updating its internal specifications. The PC will support up to 600 W (2 x 300 W) of graphics power plus an additional 120 W for CPU overclocking. Dell is keeping quiet on how much the GeForce RTX-equipped configuration will cost likely because it will be quite pricey. The bottom-of-the-barrel configuration of the Aurora will continue to start at $900 USD with the i5-8400 CPU and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics.
