Dell is one of a number of companies making big announcements at the Gamescom fan event in Cologne, Germany. Between the core brand and his daughter Alienware, Dell had a lot to offer, including new high-end monitors, impressive new gaming laptops and more.
"Gamescom offers us the opportunity to come to Europe every summer and bring some of our hottest innovations to 350,000 enthusiastic visitors," said Dell Gaming Director Frank Azor. "We are proud to meet their expectations this year with multiple announcements including new technologies on all our Alienware systems, allowing players to compete at their best."
The rundown starts with Dell's new G-series monitors. The company has established itself as one of the best monitor manufacturers and set the tone in terms of designs with minimal margins. Now Dell is focusing on the gaming market with a 24-inch 1080p screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and a 27-inch 1440p 155Hz screen. It promises a response time of 1 ms for each monitor and support for AMD & # 39; s FreeSync. Both launch August 28 and Dell requests $ 320 for the 24-inch monitor and $ 550 for the 27-inch.
These new monitors build on Dell's young G-series, which it introduced earlier this year with a series of powerful laptops that have won a number of fans. But while they continue to perform, it is now time for Alienware to update its gaming notebooks.
The Alienware 15 and 17 launch tomorrow, August 21. The 15-inch system starts at $ 1,400. The 17-inch model starts at $ 1,600. But you can add a lot of extra functions and improved components to boost that price. Both models support up to 4K screens with the option for G-sync. You can even choose a 120Hz 1440p screen with a peak brightness of 400 nits.
Other options include up to 32 GB of memory, support for up to three storage drives and a CPU as powerful as a 6-core Intel i9-8950HK. As far as the video card is concerned, you can do a Radeon RX 570 or the GTX 1060, 1070 or 1080 from Nvidia.
Finally, talking about graphics cards and Alienware, the new Aurora and Area 51 desktops with support for the GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 or 2080 Ti GPUs from Nvidia will be pre-ordered in September. The Area 51 also offers an option for Intel's 18-core i9 chip for people who want to play and stream simultaneously from the same machine.
