During a conference, Dell lifted the veil on the evolutions of its G15 and Alienware gaming notebook ranges . AMD is particularly in the spotlight with the latest Ryzen 5000, for the first time since 2007 at Alienware.
Of course, Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards will be there and up to 32 GB of RAM will be offered, for the first time in 3200 MHz at Alienware. Two SO-DIMM slots will be free to add later. Alienware’s recently introduced ultra-low profile Cherry MX mechanical switch keyboards will also be available as an option.
Three screens will be available on this m15 R5: a Full HD 165 Hz, a QHD 240 Hz and a Full HD 360 HZ, with fast refresh rates intended for demanding gamers. They will also benefit from Nvidia G-Sync technology and should therefore offer a very smooth gaming experience.
On the connectivity side, there is an HDMI 2.1 port, three USB A 3.2 ports, a USB-C 3.2 port, a headphone jack, an Ethernet port and wifi 6 AX1650. The webcam will film in HD only and the infrared module will be optional to unlock the PC with Windows Hello.
Dell is also upgrading its entry-level G15 gaming PCs to the next generation of graphics cards, but only the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will be available. The Intel processors will always be tenth generation while the AMD Ryzen will go from the 4000 to the 5000. The manufacturer has chosen the Ryzen 5 5600H and the Ryzen 7 5800H to equip these PCs, the storage going up to 2 TB in SSD with 8 to 32 GB of on-board RAM.
Only a Full HD panel will be offered by Dell on this model, but with a choice of 120 or 165 Hz refresh, more than enough to play smoothly. The connection will be similar to that of the Alienware that we have just presented: an HDMI 2.1 port, three USB A 3.2 ports, a USB-C 3.2 port, a headphone jack, an Ethernet port and wifi 6 AX1650. As an option, a four-zone RGB backlit keyboard will be marketed.
The Alienware and Dell G15 Ryzen Edition will be available in Europe on May 4, 2021, while the Intel version of the G15 will be released on April 13.
