CES 2019: Dell Alienware Area-51m DTR Laptop with Core i9-9900K & GeForce RTX
In the recent years a number of PC makers have introduced desktop replacement-class notebooks with processors originally developed for desktops. Meanwhile, large OEMs tend to be more conservative and kept using mobile CPUs for their high-end laptops. However, there is a first time for everything and this month Dellís Alienware announced its first DTR notebook featuring Intelís desktop six-core and eight-core processors. In fact, the Area-51m was specifically designed to offer high-end performance with few (if any) compromises.
Being a DTR machine, the Alienware Area-51m does away with any notion of "small." This starts with the screen, which is based around a 17.3-inch IPS display panel featuring a Full-HD resolution, 300 nits max brightness, as well as a 60 Hz or 144 Hz refresh rates. Dell is even offering models with G-Sync variable refresh functionality, depending on the exact SKU (see the table below for details), and higher-end versions of the Area-51m displays also feature Tobii eye-tracking. Past that, since many DTRs are used with external monitors, Dell did not necessarily need to equip its flagship gaming notebook with an Ultra HD LCD, especially given the challenges in driving that kind of a resolution in many games.
As noted, Dellís Alienware Area-51m R1 is based on Intelís LGA1151 Core i7/i9 processor with six or eight cores as well as Intelís Z390 chipset. On the graphics hardware side of things, the system is equipped with NVIDIAís GeForce RTX 2060/2070/2080 graphics adapters in Dellís proprietary form-factor, so while the graphics adapter can technically be upgraded, right now at least it can only be switched by the manufacturer itself.
