Dell Unveils New Upgrades to Alienware Flagship Desktop, Reveals Tenkeyless Keyboard and New QD-OLED Display

Dell Technologies has today unveiled a revamped Alienware Aurora R15 with next-gen tech, the first-ever Tenkeyless (TKL) keyboard, and a new QD-OLED gaming monitor.

Alienware Aurora

The new Alienware Aurora R15 desktop sees a significant performance boost, thanks to the latest 13th Gen Intel® Core processors, NVIDIA® GeForce RTX® 40 Series GPUs and an armada of system refinements.

To achieve higher thermal efficiency and help ensure peak performance, Dell has equipped 240mm liquid cooling, five 120mm fan and a hexagonal side-venting to generate additional airflow. A 12-phase, processor, voltage regulation helps enable long-lasting peak performance, while a voltage regulator heatsinks on the motherboard help ensure maximum cooling.

The device also sports a 80 Plus Platinum-rated power supply, an increased memory speed to DDR5 4800MHz (or MT/s) and defined memory architecture that enables the highest speed UDIMM for faster performance.

With these advancements, Dell is delivering 58% more power to the processor, obtaining double digit performance improvements, and simultaneously running the CPU up to 5? Celsius cooler.

The Aurora R15 now also includes up to a 1350W power supply (up from 1000W in the previous generation), designed to support NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce RTX® 4090 graphics card. addition to offering NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series and 30 Series GPUs, Aurora R15 will also be configurable with AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics.

Alienware’s first-ever Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard

Alienware’s new space-saving Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard (AW420K) helps users win back valuable desktop real estate while staying at the top of their game. Whether curating a minimal desk setup or looking for more room to manoeuvre your mouse, this smaller form factor design drops the number pad to maximise space and free up more area for fast-action swipes. Promoting a clean and organised gaming environment, the AW420K makes cable management simple and versatile.

Another benefit to this compact keyboard is that it’s more travel friendly than its full-size siblings. When packing up, users can remove the USB paracord cable for easier storage.

Outfitted with a robust suite of technology, the AW420K delivers a typing experience that is responsive, consistent, and long-lasting. Industry-leading CHERRY MX Red switches provide incredible reliability and durability with their gold-based cross-point contact system. The thick gold layer makes the electrical contact enclosure self-cleaning and gives the key switch permanent protection against corrosion, guaranteeing more than 100 million actuations without loss of quality.

New QD-OLED monitor

After unveiling the world’s first QD-OLED gaming monitor earlier this year – subsequently named Tom’s Guide Product of the Year and GamesRadar+ Best Ultrawide Monitor – Dell is continuing to expand its QD-OLED offerings with the introduction of a new Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor (AW3423DWF).

For those seeking increased realism, the Alienware 34” Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor delivers stunning picture quality and ultra-smooth frame rates that transform the entire gaming experience. Just like the previously launched AW3423DW model, this new monitor offers the same impressive picture qualities of Quantum Dot-OLED technology including consistent colour uniformity, wide colour coverage, deep black tones and incredible brightness.

With WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution and blazing-fast 0.1ms GtG response time, gamers can stay ahead of the competition without stuttering, input lag or motion blur while playing fast-paced games. It also supports the latest generation of consoles with VRR up to 120Hz.

Available in dark side of the moon colour and now with a slimmer design to facilitate easier wall mounting. It ships standard with a 3-year limited hardware warranty.

Pricing and availability

All three new devices will be available later this autumn with pricing to be revealed closer to availability.
