Alienware m15 and m17 gaming laptops get even more powerful at CES 2021 with Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series GPUs


Alienware has refreshed its m15 and m17 premium gaming laptops over at virtual CES 2021, powering them up with Nvidia’s new RTX 30 series graphics cards – as well as introducing a new Aurora gaming PC.

It’s not yet clear exactly which options will be available when it comes to Nvidia’s new mobile GPUs in the new Alienware m15 and m17 R4 models, but there are RTX 3060, 3070 and 3080 laptop cards which have just been introduced by Nvidia at CES. Alienware previously offered up to the RTX 2080 Super in the R3 versions of these machines, so the RTX 3080 should be available with the R4 variants, we would think.

Alienware further notes that performance is boosted by the use of faster system RAM (up to 2933MHz), but otherwise the core components stay the same as with the R3 incarnations. Storage has been upped to 4TB maximum, though, and new cooling tricks – using vapor chamber tech in every model – promise to deliver better thermal performance.
