Dell has revealed the Alienware S5000 gaming chair on its website. The racing-style chair is currently available for pre-order and has a listed price of US$399.99. The S5000 is brimming with adjustable parts that should help make any hardcore gamer’s life more comfortable. Dell has also announced that the Area-51m RTX 2080 BIOS update is now ready to download.

The Alienware S5000 gaming chair has made an appearance on the Dell website. The gaming accessory can be pre-ordered and will cost US$399.99. The nearly US$400 price tag might be questioned by some, but it puts the S5000 roughly in line with the higher end of DXRacer’s gaming chair line-up, which ranges from US$289 all the way to US$599.

For a high-end price, the S5000 needs to offer high-end functionality. Gamers can adjust numerous parts of the chair, including the seat, the backrest, the armrests, and the tilt mechanism. The gaming chair comes in a fetching design of white and black with light-blue highlights and features anti-bacterial silver thread embroidery. The S5000 is stuffed with what Dell calls “ultra premium high resiliency foam” and comes with memory foam neck support and lumbar cushions.

If you are an Alienware Area-51m owner and you are mulling over an S5000 gaming chair purchase, then you could really make your day if your laptop happens to be home to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. Dell has just announced that the 200 W video BIOS for that particular type of system is now ready for download (ensure your laptop has BIOS 1.3.0 or later installed first). Once that’s installed, you’ll soon be enjoying higher FPS during gaming sessions while content in the knowledge that your back and neck are getting proper support.
