Alienware Area-51 To Feature A New Chassis Design And Unparalleled Hardware
Alienware’s famous Area-51 gaming PC series will be getting a new model in its line-up soon. You can expect from Alienware to offer the best possible hardware out there, but this time they have given a makeover to their Area-51’s 2014 edition as well.
The latest version will have a hexagon-like shape unlike the traditional rectangular chassis we have always seen. They are calling it “triad chassis,” and it is engineered keeping in mind two important design principles — thermal management and ergonomics.
The unique triad design provides much better air flow and helps in keeping the temperature low – something every gamer desires. The chassis features front I/O panel and grips. Moreover, it provides option to the modders to brainstorm ideas, on how they can further improve the outlook of the chassis, by providing vast and open entryways on both sides.
The hexagonal design facilitates in providing better overflow than a rectangular design. It leaves more free space after using efficient cable management techniques.
Now get ready to be blown away by its specs. Area-51 will have powerful Intel Core i7 Extreme processors (six or eight core variants), 32GB of DDR4 memory in quad channel clocked at 2133MHZ, bays for three conventional hard drives and two solid state drives, and a power supply that can be replaced with a 1.5KW one.
Users can add up to three graphics card by either AMD or Nvidia through their CrossfireX or SLI technologies. The Arena-51 supports 4K gaming which means users can enjoy 11520×2160 resolution across triple Ultra HD 4K monitors.
There is a software tool called “Command Center 4.0” that can be used to monitor temperature, and tweak LED lights by changing their colors. It also provides information about CPU, memory and graphics cards. The chassis is liquid cooled and the system will have overclocked processors taking multitasking and gaming to a whole new level. Command Center 4.0 further lets you fine tune the performance of your system by providing more control over the hardware.
The price of this latest version of Arena-51 is not yet revealed by Alienware. They will start shipping it in U.S. in October.
