Break down boundaries and immerse yourself in the game with graphics more realistic than ever before thanks to the multi-thread scaling capabilities of the new API DirectX 12.
ENGINEERED FOR AN UNENDING ADVANTAGE
A new era of engineering:
The new Aurora features our Legend Industrial Design with an improved airflow pattern from the previous generation. A new chassis design ensures airflow moves more fluidly and efficiently to reduce CPU temperatures while fans operate slower. Lower temperatures mean performance with more stability and higher overclocking which results in higher frames per second while gaming.
Gaming made timeless:
The new Alienware Aurora is thoughtfully engineered with an innovative PSU swing-arm, which enables a variety of benefits like tool-less graphics and expansion bays and a compact chassis size. It also allows graphics cards to be perfectly positioned for purposeful airflow. We ensured the swing-arm carries the power supply which allows for airflow through the side vent, while securing and reducing vibrations during shipping to the cards themselves.
To ensure safety and to avoid any damage or injury we created the stop-anywhere function on the PSU swing-arm. This prevents the swing-arm from falling or swinging while in use. Additionally, we included a locking mechanism that secures the swing-arm while open and being worked on.
Weapon of choice:
The Alienware Aurora lives on as the official PC of choice for Team Liquid and can now be found serving in the newly opened Alienware Training Facility in Europe.
Bring on the action:
Alienware and the Alienware Aurora partner up with RIOT Games to fuel stream-worthy, live gaming events around the world.
The Alienware Aurora is coming to the classroom thanks to an eSports for EDU initiative that enables universities across the United States to develop their own eSports programs using uncompromising gear.
