Dell announced its first VR-ready notebooks – The new line of Alienware gaming notebooks boast the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series family of GPUs and the integration of new materials such as anodized aluminum, magnesium alloy, steel reinforcement and copper that improve thermal management for these new powerful components, as well as add durability and rigidity to the Alienware’s design aesthetic.
Dell Alienware 17
The new Alienware 17 is the ultimate gaming notebook with an emphasis on screen size, gaming performance and overall immersion. This flagship notebook gains more power with overclocked Intel Core i7 k-series processors and DDR4 memory running up to 2667 Mhz. Newly added support for optional IR Tobii eye-tracking technology adds great accessibility features based on where you’re looking. It allows gamers to fine tune their skills with a new Overwolf app that can replay your gaze pattern so gamers can track where they were looking during gameplay; gamers can then learn from their mistakes and be sure to focus their attention on the best opportunities to crush the competition. Tobii partnered with Alienware to add exclusive features including enhanced presence detection tied to our iconic AlienFX lighting zones; the full LED system illuminates and changes based on where you look. Only on Alienware will your Tobii camera detect your gaze, allow you to record and export your gaze pattern as a coaching tool to help improve you gameplay. It can also sense your presence and attention to understand when you engage with various elements of the device or lock your system when you walk away; these unique features help optimize power, performance, and can improve security.
