THE STUFF OF LEGENDS
Weighing in as low as 4.65 lbs., under 20.5mm thin, 360.3mm wide and 276.2mm long, the Alienware m15 is lean and powerful. Designed from the ground up, the m15 features premium magnesium alloy materials that deliver weight savings while reducing thickness and delivering a stiffer, sturdy, chassis - all within a sleek aesthetic. This generation of the Alienware m15 includes an improved surface coating engineered to reduce fingerprint smearing and other typical stains without changing the hue or color. This stain resistant paint formula is a High-Performance Clear Coat – a formula that lets you feel the durable magnesium alloy within our award-winning industrial design. Available in Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon.
Power reborn: With up to 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9k processors enabling up to 8-cores and 16-threads of multi-threaded performance.
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH
Our latest thermal technology, Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech, is an engineering approach where an Alienware system’s gaming performance is never compromised by means of electrical and mechanical methods while maintaining system stability during the highest performance states. This is managed using methods, not limited to, heat dissipation through creative thermal module designs, fan and fan motor design, as well as exhaust and intake layouts and overall airflow impedance. This generation has also been upgraded with an 9mm diameter increase in the CPU fan blades and 4mm diameter increase in the GPU fan blades. In addition, the m15 offers improved airflow by directly channeling the cooler air onto the most sensitive cores of the system.
With all the latest engineering enhancements, you can expect increased power efficiency and higher speeds for longer sustained periods. Here’s a closer look at our innovative cooling solution:
Vapor Chamber Technology: Alienware’s Vapor Chamber Technology uses advanced methods to efficiently dissipate heat. The Alienware m15 is engineered with a dedicated vapor chamber in between the CPU and copper heat pipes. It's all designed to manage the thermal flow and maximize performance. These chambers utilize the phase-changing nature of liquid to transfer heat more effectively than a solid piece of metal or copper heat pipes. Vapor Chambers are also more versatile than copper heat pipes in that they can be designed to be spread evenly across an entire chip that needs to be cooled.
Dual-intake, dual-exhaust airflow design: Our thin and light chassis prioritizes performance with a dual fan design that pulls in cool air from the top and bottom vents, and exhales exhaust out the rear and side vents for optimal cooling of the core components.
High voltage driving fan: The fire resistant, Kevlar-like liquid-crystal polymer fan blades include sleeve bearings, and 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulate air more efficiently. There are now 132 unique fan blades to cool both the CPU and GPU.
Load-balancing heat pipes: The dynamics of thermal activity across critical components like the GPU and the CPU are intelligently discharged across four 3.5mm diameter copper-composite heat pipes.
Dense copper fin stacks: The R4 generation of the m15 has the greatest amount of copper material, by weight, dedicated to providing heat dissipation to core components than the previous R2 generation. The heat pipes have also increased by 40% for enhanced overall surface area and heat dissipation.
HYPER-EFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION
Hyper-efficient voltage regulation is the result of hardware engineering that enables graphics and/or processors to run at their highest levels of performance for extended lengths of time. This increases the number of total voltage regulation phases which thereby raises power signal efficiency and thermal efficiency per core.
The higher efficiency level results in capacity for increased workloads over time with reduced energy loss to heat.
The graphics story: An industry first, the m15 features unparalleled 12-phase graphics voltage regulation on all configurations based on the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30-series family to enable the highest performance possible for the longest periods of time. The latest R4 generation of the m15 offers a 50% increase in voltage regulation phases from the previous R2 generation to create our most efficient 15" design in Alienware history.
NVIDIA Ampere architecture: The m15 R4 with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30-series graphics, features the all-new NVIDIA Ampere architecture with technologies like 2nd generation Ray Tracing Cores, Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Dynamic Boost 2.0. NVIDIA Ampere streaming multiprocessors are the building blocks for incredibly fast and efficient GPUs for gamers and creators.
The processor story: Achieve up to 6-phase voltage regulation on configurations with a NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics card for higher performance gaming for longer periods of time. And with 25% larger CPU inductors than the R2 generation of the m15, top-end performance is increased even further.
High-performance storage: The Alienware m15 is capable of supporting RAID 0 (Dual SSD Stripe) configurations. This means that two drives can be configured as a single large drive, maximizing transfer rates and enabling maximum storage and performance. If you want to add even more storage space, the Alienware m15 R4 is capable of supporting a maximum of up to three M.2 NVMe solid state drives.
Rapid connectivity: Killer Doubleshot™ Pro technology enables intelligent management of internet traffic by using both the wired and wireless connections in tandem to prioritize packets. Killer technology will automatically identify latency sensitive gaming and voice traffic and send it over the fastest interface. This new technology is made possible by combining Killer™ Ethernet E3100X 2.5Gbps Wired Networking with Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i 802.11ax 2x2 Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 5.1.
Ready for everything: Expand your world with a SD media card reader and a push-push Micro-SD slot supporting SD5.1 USH-II HD312 SD media.
Premium touchpad: A precision-point glass touchpad provides a high-quality gaming experience you can feel.
True gamers keyboard: The incredibly responsive keyboard features 1.7mm travel with optional 4-zone RGB N-Key rollover and anti-ghosting technology. For an even more customizable option, upgrade to the premium keyboard with per-key AlienFX lighting.
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.
