INCREDIBLY IMMERSIVE. INTENTIONALLY INGENIOUS.
Every detail of the legendary Alienware battle station is designed to heighten and excite your senses for the most immersive gaming experiences possible. That’s why every click, press, sound and frame work together to take you deeper in the game than you ever imagined.
RAISING THE BAR ONCE AGAIN
Made for multitasking: The Aurora R12 can double as a gaming content editing system or gamers can stream and record while chatting and looking up guides during game play.
INNOVATIVE GRAPHICS POWER, AIRFLOW, AND COOLING
The Alienware Aurora offers optional custom graphics designs based on NVIDIA’s 2nd Gen RTX architecture. These custom designs are made with extensive thermals and an innovative airflow pattern engineered to prioritize graphics performance while complementing the Aurora chassis airflow as well.
Extensive cooling: Our thermal design includes quad 10mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapor chambers – our largest diameter heat pipe design to date – designed for exceptional gaming performance.
Innovative airflow: Another added boost for graphics performance is made possible by a dual-axial fan design with positive rear pressure relief – a new Alienware first for graphics cards. The positive rear pressure relief allows heat to escape from specially located vents designed to aid with flow and thermal management. This new approach is built with gamers in mind.
Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS): Using AI rendering, NVIDIA® DLSS delivers a massive performance boost at the same power when compared to other graphics cards at similar resolutions.
Detailed, Beautiful Visuals with Radeon™ Image Sharpening: Experience superior image quality with low performance impact. AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening uses an intelligent contrast-adaptive sharpening algorithm that produces visuals that look crisp and detailed. Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening combined with optional GPU Upscaling draws out details in your favorite titles.
AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening: AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening (RIS) is a contrast-adaptive sharpening algorithm designed to intelligently enhance details to deliver crisp-looking visuals with minimal performance impact.
AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag: The new Radeon Anti-Lag feature in Radeon Software is designed to help reduce input lag in GPU-limited cases. Radeon Anti-Lag controls the pace of the CPU work to make sure it doesn't get too far ahead of the GPU, reducing the amount of CPU work queued up. As a result, Radeon Anti-Lag can shrink input lag by almost a full frame, restoring the responsiveness to your game.
Engineering dominance: Based on the innovative Legend industrial design, the Aurora R12 ensures airflow moves more fluidly and efficiently to decrease temperatures at the voltage regulator heatsinks by up to 8%, compared to the previous Aurora R9’s industrial design. Lower temperatures and more efficient airflow increase performance while maintaining stability for higher overclocking which results in higher frames per second while gaming.
Gaming made timeless: With DIY in mind, the Aurora R12 is equipped with an innovative PSU swing-arm, which enables a variety of benefits like tool-less graphics and expansion bay upgrades, as well as a compact chassis size. It also allows graphics cards to be positioned for purposeful airflow. 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.
LEGENDS LIVE ON
Light it up: AlienFX RGB LED lighting adds an instantly iconic look to the Aurora.
The future of design: The Legend industrial design innovates the elements of Alienware's roots and pushes the Aurora into a new realm. The unique design helps avid gamers stand out from the crowd thanks to bold, continuous lighting and the iconic central loop of AlienFX that unleashes dynamic color versatility. Plus, thoughtfully positioned front I/O ports, easy to reach rear ports and upgradeable components offer extreme gaming flexibility. Finally, functional front airways and hexagonal-shaped side venting boosts intake efficiency and maximizes air movement.
Flexibility is key: The Aurora is thoughtfully engineered for enhanced usability. With an easy-access side entry panel and conveniently placed ports, including three USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type A) ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type-C) port, plus a headset and mic plug-in all located in the front of the system, it’s built for easy flexibility.
Weapon of choice: The Alienware Aurora is the official PC of choice for the players and staff of Team Liquid. You can find the Aurora powering all the gameplay, livestreams and content creation in both Alienware Training Facilities located in Los Angeles, USA and Utrecht, Netherlands.
Get schooled: 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.
PERFORMANCE THAT RISES BEYOND
Killer™ Technology: Never miss a beat with integrated networking solutions like Killer™ 3100G Ethernet LAN and optional Killer™ DoubleShot Pro technology that send your connection signals into turbo-boost when Killer™ LAN is already enabled.
ALIENWARE COMMAND CENTER
The Alienware Command Center is continuously updated. Our latest version now includes features specifically desired by the gaming community with auto-tuned game profiles, a new responsive UI, intuitive overclocking options and all-new AlienFX settings.
Experience a performance-optimized airflow. The rear and top vents of the Alienware Aurora work as exhaust to keep temperatures in ideal ranges by removing heat from the system. The front and side vents simultaneously take in cool air to enable high performance and maintain system health.
The Alienware Command Center includes an easy and intuitive overclocking control module that allows the user to quickly and safely squeeze additional performance out of their system. Create your own system overclocking profiles, then easily control their system performance.
The latest AlienFX hardware and software supports full RGB values with up to 16.8 million colors. Easily manage your FX lighting zones, edit peripheral settings and save new themes you can then assign for each game.
