Alienware reduces gap between laptop and desktop gaming performance


Alienware has today revealed it’s new Alienware 13 gaming laptop and Graphics Amplifier, reducing the compromise of gaming on the go.

Let’s first look at the Alienware 13, inside you have an Intel Core i5 processor and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 860M with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM and 1TB of storage. The dimensions of the Alienware 13 are pretty impressive as it is 40% thinner than the previous generation Alienware 14 at just 10-inches thin, weighing in at just over 2kg. These figures make this the smallest gaming laptop in Dell’s lineup since that discontinued Alienware M11X. You will also have a 1,366 x 768 resolution display with the option of upgrading to a 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution touchscreen display. The cost of the Alienware 13 is not to terrible either starting at just £948,99 before upgrades.

Arriving with the Alienware 13 is the optional graphics amplifier giving you the ability to use any full-length, dual-width PCI-Express x16 desktop graphics card, up to 375W, instead of your laptop’s GPU. This should give you the best of both worlds and takes mobile gaming to a whole new level. The graphics amplifier will also bring with it 4 extra USB 3.0 ports and will set you back an extra £199 in the UK.

You can configure your rig today online but it will be a few weeks before these start shipping out.
