Operating System

Available with Windows 10 Home: Gaming is better than ever on Windows 10, with games in 4K, DirectX 12, and streaming your gameplay.i

Witness ultimate power

Witness ultimate power

Powerhouse performance: The Alienware Area-51 delivers unbeatable performance with Intel® Core™ processors. Choose between an Intel Core i7, i9, or i9 Extreme with Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Technology for extreme megatasking capabilities. Record, game and stream simultaneously in 4K resolutions with options for 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 core processors.

More memory: With 64GB of memory in quad-channel mode and 4 DIMM slots to populate your memory, you can create games that go beyond what you thought was possible. So whether you’re rendering a 3D model, editing photography, video or sound, know that your only limit is your imagination.

A new graphical frontier

A new graphical frontier

A gaming breakthrough: Alienware breaks the mold once again with the first-ever Area-51, featuring dual liquid-cooled graphics with NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080. These dual liquid cooled 1080 class cards deliver increased performance, produce low noise operation, extract the highest performance from NVIDIA® SLI cards and allow for 16K high-fidelity gaming.

Critical cooling: Our new liquid cooled graphics technology enables an improvement of up to 30 degrees Celsius cooler, on the GPU, in most benchmarks compared to standard air cooling. When running Ultra settings, on average, you can expect a benefit of up to 20 degrees cooler, on the GPU, compared to standard air cooling.

Re-engineered with purpose

Re-engineered with purpose

Second-gen triad chassis: A revolutionary new second generation triad chassis with a new retooled swinging cage supporting tool-less graphics and expansion cards for the first time ever on an Area-51, extending the life of your system with easy-to-access components. Also added is the PCI-E card door, which eliminates plastic retention with a screw-less rotation door. And by designing the system with a door built from a single, structural panel, internal components always stay secure.

Superior materials: The triad design is forged from an internal carbon powder-coated metal skeleton and features solid, staked-in rubber grommets. A large surface area holds an internal, stamped-metal panel with cable management ports and 5 storage bays.

Access your entire ecosystem: Experience seamless connectivity with a total of 14 USB ports, including four ports on the front panel. The largest available Alienware desktop cavity is also outfitted with efficient cable management clamps plus four independent HDD cable clips, graphics brackets and locks to keep your cards securely fastened.

Your system stays cool when your game is on fire

Don’t just beat the heat. Annihilate it: The new chassis features high-quality cold copper plates and a 120x120 mm radiator to guarantee your system stays cool under pressure.

Epically efficient: Area-51 features the quietest pump, a double ceramic bearing, super durable dark gray nylon tubing and a 2850 RPM pump cycle guaranteed for up to 50,000 hours of use. Voltage regulators and passive heatsink chipsets prevent overheating.
