Operating System

Available with Windows 10 Home: Break down boundaries and immerse yourself in the game with graphics more realistic than ever before thanks to the multi-thread scaling capabilities of the new API DirectX 12.

A NEW FIRST IN POWER

A NEW FIRST IN POWER

For the first time in Alienware's desktop history we are proud to introduce a new optional liquid cooled graphics solution based on a PCIe-mounted heat exchanger and smart fan blower design. It’s engineered for lower temperatures and more reliable graphics overclocking to produce higher performing graphics.

RAISING THE BAR ONCE AGAIN

RAISING THE BAR ONCE AGAIN

Overclocking guaranteed: The Alienware Aurora was designed to fully support custom upgrades. The processor lays on a motherboard using the Intel Z490 Chipset with a bus speed of 8 GT/s and support for overclocking, Intel® Rapid Storage Technology and Intel® Platform Trust Technology.

High-speed memory: With more and faster memory come greater multitasking capabilities. Your system can double as a gaming content editing system or you can stream and record while chatting and looking up guides while you track your quest. With massive amounts of HyperX FURY XMP DDR4 memory there’s no limit to what all you can do at one time.

1000W power supply: With more power comes more possibilities. With an impressive 1000W power supply – another first for Aurora - you can upgrade to higher-wattage components, like higher-end graphics card setups as well as cleaner, more efficient, energy.

GRAPHICS CARD TECHNOLOGIES: NVIDIA GeForce

GRAPHICS CARD TECHNOLOGIES: NVIDIA GeForce

Ray Tracing: Ray tracing is the holy grail of gaming graphics, simulating the physical behavior of light to bring real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to even the most visually intense games. Upgrade to GeForce RTX models to experience ray tracing powered by the award-winning NVIDIA Turing architecture.

GRAPHICS CARD TECHNOLOGIES: AMD RADEON™ IMAGE SHARPENING

Detailed, Beautiful Visuals with Radeon™ Image Sharpening: Experience superior image quality with low performance impact. AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening uses an intelligent contrast-adaptive sharpening algorithm that produces visuals that look crisp and detailed. Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening combined with optional GPU Upscaling draws out details in your favorite titles.
 
AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening: AMD Radeon™ Image Sharpening (RIS) is a contrast-adaptive sharpening algorithm designed to intelligently enhance details to deliver crisp-looking visuals with minimal performance impact. 

AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag: The new Radeon Anti-Lag feature in Radeon Software is designed to help reduce input lag in GPU-limited cases. Radeon Anti-Lag controls the pace of the CPU work to make sure it doesn't get too far ahead of the GPU, reducing the amount of CPU work queued up. As a result, Radeon Anti-Lag can shrink input lag by almost a full frame, restoring the responsiveness to your game. 

AMD Radeon™ FreeSync™ Technology: AMD Radeon FreeSync technology in the AMD Radeon™ RX graphics on the Alienware Aurora resolves the communication issues between processor and monitor, eliminating image tears and choppiness for effortlessly smooth gameplay.

ENGINEERED FOR AN UNENDING ADVANTAGE

ENGINEERED FOR AN UNENDING ADVANTAGE

A new era of engineering: The updated chassis design based on the Legend industrial design, ensures airflow moves more fluidly and efficiently to decreases temperatures at the voltage regulator heatsinks by up to 8%, compared to the previous model. Lower temperatures and more efficient airflow increase performance while maintaining stability for higher overclocking which results in higher frames per second while gaming.

Gaming made timeless: The new Alienware Aurora is thoughtfully engineered with an innovative PSU swing-arm, which enables a variety of benefits like tool-less graphics and expansion bays and a compact chassis size. It also allows graphics cards to be perfectly positioned for purposeful airflow. We ensured the swing-arm carries the power supply which allows for airflow through the side vent, while securing and reducing vibrations during shipping to the cards themselves.

Added safety: To ensure safety and to avoid any damage or injury we created the stop-anywhere function on the PSU swing-arm. This prevents the swing-arm from falling or swinging while in use. Additionally, we included a locking mechanism that secures the swing-arm while open and being worked on.

LEGENDS LIVE ON

LEGENDS LIVE ON

Light it up: The new AlienFX RGB LED lighting adds an instantly iconic look to the Aurora. For our Lunar Light option, we’ve added a new front-facing lighting ring that’s unmistakably unique to Alienware engineering.

The future of design: The new Legend Industrial Design innovates the elements of Alienware's roots and pushes Aurora into a new realm. The unique design helps avid gamers stand out from the crowd thanks to bold, continuous lighting and the iconic central loop of AlienFX that unleashes dynamic color versatility. Plus, thoughtfully positioned front I/O ports, easy to reach rear ports and upgradeable components offer extreme gaming flexibility. Finally, functional front airways and hexagonal-shaped side venting boosts intake efficiency and maximizes air movement.

Legendary colors: Find your own battle style with either a Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon Alienware Aurora featuring an ultra-smooth, satin finish.

Flexibility is key: The Aurora is thoughtfully engineered for enhanced usability. With an easy-access side entry panel and conveniently placed ports, including three USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type A) ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type-C™) port, plus a headset and mic plug-in all located in the front of the system, its built for easy flexibility.
PERFORMANCE THAT RISES BEYOND

PERFORMANCE THAT RISES BEYOND

Killer™ Wireless: Never miss a beat with integrated networking solutions like Killer™ E3000 Ethernet LAN and optional Killer™ DoubleShot Pro technology that sends your connection signals into turbo-boost when Killer™ LAN is already enabled.
