Smart Technologies include SmartShift Maxi, Smart Access Graphicsi and Smart Access Memory.i
Endless performance


AMD SmartShift Max

Available for the first time on an Alienware laptop, dynamic power shifting between a Radeon GPU and APU boosts performance for gaming, rendering and content creation.

AMD Smart Access Graphics

Improve frame rates, reduce latency and save battery by enabling discrete Radeon graphics or Ryzen graphics to handle rendering and presentation while maintaining AMD FreeSync™. Only available with select models.i

AMD Smart Access Memory

Get an extra edge when your Ryzen processors are able to harness the full potential of the Radeon graphics card memory.

AMD FreeSync™ Premium

Put an end to choppy gameplay with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate. This adaptive sync technology matches the refresh rate of your graphics and your display for buttery smooth gameplay.

Cool under pressure

Ensure your in-game performance is never compromised with Alienware Cryo-tech™ cooling technology, an electrical and mechanical engineering approach that maintains system stability, even during the most demanding of games. This technology implements a dual-intake, quad-exhaust design, load-balancing heat pipes and a Thermal Control Circuit Offset feature that lets you control the CPU’s temperature. In addition, configurations with AMD Radeon™ RX 6850M XT graphics also feature a dedicated vapor chamber for optimized cooling.

Cutting-edge Ray Tracing and AI

Push performance to its limit with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics, now featuring NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology, Ray Tracing, Max-Q and G-SYNC technologies.

Boost Performance with AI NVIDIA DLSS is designed to increase performance, without sacrificing quality, by using cutting-edge AI.
More Immersive Experiences Ray Tracing enables realistic and immersive graphics, which runs fast thanks to 2nd gen RT Cores.
Optimized Power and Performance NVIDIA® Max-Q is a suite of technologies powered by AI that optimize laptops to deliver high performance in thin form factors.
NVIDIA® G-SYNC® G-SYNC helps ensure tear-free, high-speed action scenes. This is done by dynamically matching the refresh on your display to the output from your graphics card. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother these high-speed scenes are experienced. Various speed options are available and Alienware's 17" laptops are the world's first to offer up to 480Hz panels.

Life-like visuals

Dolby Vision™ uses studio and developer-defined metadata to bring you the most life-like gaming environments the world has ever seen. That means optimal color profiles and contrast that goes well beyond the capabilities of traditional high dynamic range (HDR).

Additionally, while Dolby Vision™ is standard with the m17 R5, there’s also three unique display options to choose from: FHD with up to 165Hz speedsi, FHD with up to 360Hz speedsi and UHD with up to 120Hz speeds.i All options include ComfortView Plus, while the first two include anti-glare finishes and the UHD option is HDR400 certified with True 8-bit image quality.

Advanced Audio

Advanced audio

Get deeper into the game through an added dimension of sound that puts you at the center with Dolby Atmos®. By placing every sound, voice and instrument in its own space, this scalable technology can improve reaction times while in-game as you experience exactly what the developers and artists envisioned.

Immersive keyboard

The optional, low-profile mechanical keyboardi delivers 1.8mm key-travel and a tactile, audible experience unlike any other. Codeveloped with CherryMX, this keyboard also provides per-key AlienFX lighting and a smooth, wobble-free feeling when gaming. Plus, thanks to German engineered stainless-steel switches, gold-plated electrical contact enclosures and a 15 million keystroke lifecycle, you can type at your leisure with an assurance against failure.
