Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech™ is an electrical and mechanical engineering approach used to maintain system stability during the highest performance states. These approaches include creative thermal module designs, heat dissipation, advanced thermal and system control, fan and fan motor design, and even exhaust and intake layouts that determine overall airflow impedance. Our latest technologies bring you industry exclusives and patent-pending technologies that enable our thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop.
Killer cooling technology: Game faster and for longer periods of time thanks to Element 31*, an industry-first and Alienware-exclusive encapsulated gallium-silicone thermal interface material. Offering a 25% improvement in thermal resistance*, Element 31 works more efficiently than previous solutions pulling heat away from the CPU with double the energy storage capability over the previous generation*. Element 31 will slow down in double the time that it would normally take the CPU temperatures to increase by 45oC*.Indirectly, total system temperatures will benefit from this environment as well.
Four is better than one: Introducing Alienware's quad fan technology, a patent-pending industry exclusive included in our X-Series laptops. This new design includes a combination of standard evacuative fans which move air through the system as well as, patented, dual opposite outlet (DOO) fan which move air through the chassis and over various internal hotspots creating a pressurized environment that dissipates heat and reduces external temperatures. Each fan is intelligently controlled and uniquely programmed to function individually to meet the desired equilibrium of cooling. This helps your system maintain optimized airflow and internal chassis pressure for better performance.
Intelligent quad airflow: Game with confidence and rest assured that your system is being intelligently cooled according to your type of gameplay and its thermal requirements. Each of the four fans independently functions to regulate and control system surface temperatures, CPU and GPU. Plus, each fan can independently spin-up, slow down, or remain steady according to your system's needs, prioritizing movement of the fans that are positioned to enable the best benefit for your system.
Tailored power: Like an engine’s transmission, gamers can set, activate and manage five unique power states through the Alienware Command Center with this exclusive, patent-pending technology. These five power states are determined through a set of sensors and variables throughout your system’s CPU and GPU circuits. Depending on your needs, you can choose from Performance Mode, Balanced Mode, Battery Saver Mode, Quiet Mode and Full Speed Mode, which can also be toggled outside of Alienware Command Center using FN+F1.
Total control: The Thermal Control Circuit Offset is a feature that can be set within the BIOS if you choose to set a “cruise control” limit to your CPU temperature. This gives you the power and peace of mind to manage your CPU temperature within a safe limit you deem comfortable for everyday use. If you don’t like to tinker with your system, then you can game with the default setting set by Intel.
*Only available on systems with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 or 3080 graphics cards.
*Based on Compal Lab analysis, April 2021. When compared to the Alienware m15 R4. Actual results will vary.
Game longer: For 25 years we’ve delivered technology no one else has. And we’ve done it again with Alienware’s thinnest 17-inch laptop made for marathon gaming. The x17 offers HyperEfficient 12-phase graphics voltage regulation and 6-phase processor voltage regulation which means you’ll be able to perform at your peak during CPU-dependent game play and for hours on end.
Prepared to game: The new Alienware x17 features NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics. Some of the amazing benefits that push performance from the new NVIDIA® series include Dynamic Boost 2.0 and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). New AI-powered Dynamic Boost 2.0 automatically delivers the needed power between the GPU, GPU memory, and CPU for a larger performance boost than ever before. The AI networks in Dynamic Boost 2.0 manage power on a per-frame basis, so your x17 is constantly optimizing for maximum performance while you’re gaming and creating. NVIDIA® DLSS delivers a massive performance boost at the same power by using the Tensor Cores to do groundbreaking AI rendering.
Feel the power: With 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors you’ll experience high-performance action across your favorite games and applications.
Easy on the eyes: Our FHD panels also offer high-speed motion graphics and a sRGB 100% color gamut rating for a richer color range than most laptops.
Windows Hello: Get your mission started sooner with a password that's as personal as it gets using the newly added, Windows Hello facial recognition—available on all x17 panel options.
Premium AlienFX keyboard: The incredibly responsive keyboard features per-key RGB LED lighting, 1.5mm travel, N-key rollover technology and anti-ghosting technology.
More options, more wins: Alienware's exclusive ultra-low profile truly mechanical laptop keyboard offers the opportunity to extend your senses into next-level immersion. Experience real mechanical key switch design and architecture that's exceptionally tactile and audile.
Feel the difference: Experience uniformly smooth travel no matter if you hit the key center or off center thanks to the mechanical design within the anatomy of each key's switch. This technology delivers an anti-wobble feel with an increased total key travel of 1.8mm.
*Function keys do not apply
We built upon the purely geometric balance and blended bone lines of our iconic Legend industrial design and reached it to new heights. Experience a new dark core feature that removes distractions and provides an aesthetically pleasing side profile to hide all the ports and vents. Plus, an innovative, modified extrusion makes our design that much more seamless, and our stain-resistant paint design looks even cleaner with a new silky-smooth finish.
Enhanced AlienFX: Celebrate your thermals with lighting that makes heads turn, then spin with jealousy. The latest AlienFX hardware and software supports full RGB values with up to 16.8 million colors.
Light it up: Make your setup shine with new rear stadium and touchpad AlienFX lighting enhancements. You can customize the stadium AlienFX lighting colors to match your style, show off your steeze and revel in a new, independent and programmable lighting zone powered by 100 micro LEDS.
Bespoke lighting: Easily manage your AlienFX lighting zones, edit peripheral settings, and save new themes you can then assign for each game in the Alienware Command Center. Then, before putting the competition to bed, try the "Go Dark" mode allowing you to turn off lights and go ninja stealthy without drawing attention.
Another Alienware first: We’re bringing you the performance you expect from our systems in adapter form with Alienware's first small form factor power adapter. 46% smaller and 25% lighter than a traditional adapter, our Alienware-branded 240W adapter is 1.9% more efficient than the previous 240W adapter.
More ports mean more fun: Let the lightning-fast games begin with two Type-C ports for up to 40Gbps data transfer connections. These ports can also serve as an additional display output for external monitors. Plus, with two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A with PowerShare up to 10Gbps connection speeds you’ll have all the quality connection options you could ever need.
Killer Wi-Fi: Intel’s Killer Wi-Fi 6 technology delivers multiple high-speed channel wireless for improved performance and reliability.
Go Native: Every x17 looks great anywhere you game, as each comes with HDMI 2.1 for native 4K/120Hz output onto other displays.
