Alienware Upgrades Popular m15 Gaming Powerhouse With New NVIDIA GPUs

Five months ago, Nvidia finally lifted the lid on their next generation of Turing RTX graphics cards, the GTX 1080-beating RTX 2070, the sort-of-but-not-quite-as-good-as-the-GTX-1080Ti RTX 2080 and the 4K monster that is the RTX 2080Ti. Sure, there is a new wireless adapter inside the gaming machine but since the Omen 15 should be able to deliver buttery-smooth gameplay, it is going to be one heck of a feature for gamers who can spend that much money.

Combining a dual-intake, dual-exhaust design with load balanced heat pipes, the m15 and m17 are created to counteract any thermal throttling you may encounter during gameplay. The optional Full-HD TN display panel with a refresh rate of 240Hz and a response time of 4ms will be a huge improvement over the 144Hz LCDs in the market and the presence of the RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU will help gamers achieve a significantly higher framerate.

These thin and light chassis are packing the latest Intel Coffee Lake processors, with up to an Intel Core i7-8750HQ hex-core processor and Nvidia Turing graphics up to an RTX 2080.

The laptops come with real-time ray tracing and AI-enhanced gaming experience, The NVIDIA® GeForce RTX graphics allows the laptop to render high-resolution graphics easily. The manufacturer also showed off the Dell G7 17, packing more powerful hardware behind a bigger chassis. These new GPUs can be used for both laptops or desktop computers. From there, systems will be available with up to 512GB of SSD storage.

For the processor, you can now get the new 6-core Intel Core i9 8950HK processor, clocked at up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost.


The GL series is MSI's new more accessible gaming laptop skew, swapping in a GeForce GTX 2060. The GS series offers exceptional on-the-go gaming experience.

Nvidia's mobile chipsets have been highly anticipated simply because we've been stuck with the company's GTX-series GPUs for seemingly forever.

Please stay tuned to HEXUS as we will have a review of a GeForce RTX 2060 FE up here as soon as we are allowed to. You can get up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM.

While the initial m15 and m17 laptops were announced late past year, these new refreshes are aimed at making the devices the most powerful gaming laptops now available.
