Alienware Area-51 5300 review

 

Unlike some of the larger offerings knocking about the shops these days, the Area-51 5300 delivers a smaller, more compact solution. It comes with the Intel Pentium 4 processor, but specification isn't quite up to the high standards we've come to...

Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition review

 

The most powerful gaming PC we've ever tested

So much space for activities ; Record-breaking benchmark results ; Designed for mega-tasking

Absolutely massive ; Absurdly expensive

The Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition is unquestionably the most powerful gaming PC out there, but most won’t need – or be able to afford – its overwhelming performance.

Alienware Area 51 review

 

Weird, wonderful and well-thought-out

Eye-catching ; Powerful ; Design choice is actually practical

It's heavy ; It's not cheap

The Area 51 pack some impressive hardware into its extraterrestrial design, but only the true enthusiasts need apply.

Alienware Area-51 X-58 Review

 

If your life is one long shoot-em up it's perfect, but the price is way too high

More power than a Russian oil baron

Costs the same as a holiday for four

Alienware Area-51

 

The Area-51 gaming PC has Intel Core 2 Duo, Quad and Extreme processors and the world's most powerful graphics card – the 602MHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 GPU. It runs Windows Vista, has 4TB of storage space, and has options for RAID 1 and 0...

A rock solid, match ready, gaming maestro that rips through Crysis or Unreal Tournament 3 with all the ease of the real Alien dispatching a wheelbarrow full of assorted puppies and kittens. Razor sharp tech for serious gamers only. Alienware Area-51 is...

Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition

 

The latest Alienware Area-51 runs on AMD's blistering Ryzen Threadripper for the ultimate in CPU-intensive 4K gaming performance. But for most, this expensive, flashy desktop PC is overkill.

Smooth 4K gameplay. Excellent multithreaded performance. Expandable chassis. Efficient, quiet cooling.

Expensive. USB-C lacks Thunderbolt 3. Lags rivals on most benchmark tests.

Bottom Line: The latest Alienware Area-51 runs on AMD's blistering Ryzen Threadripper for the ultimate in CPU-intensive 4K gaming performance. But for most, this expensive, flashy desktop PC is overkill.

Alienware bets on Threadripper but offers Core i9 X, too

 

The refresh for the top-of-the line model of Alienware's Area-51 premium gaming desktop offers more AMD options.

Alienware Area-51 (2015)

 

The redesigned Alienware Area-51 introduces a radical new gaming desktop design, all for the sake of improved cooling, expandability, and features that make it unique in the eyes of gamers.

Good 3D gaming performance. Innovative design. Roomy chassis. Side-panel lighting uses contacts instead of wires.

Huge tower. You need a 4K display to take advantage of the triple-GPU setup. Boutique gaming systems are still faster. Only one-year standard warranty.

Conclusion The Alienware Area-51's greatest strength is its innovative new chassis. Upgrading graphics cards and hard drives are a snap, even though the system takes up a lot of real estate in your den. Performance is more than acceptable for a...
