Alienware Will Be the 1st to Release Gaming Desktops Based on Intel's Six-Cores Proc.


Engadget & Hot Hardware:
We heard at Intel's GDC press event that Alienware would be one of the first PC manufacturers to ship systems with the newest six-core consumer processor, but neither company's representatives would confess to "when." Now, we've our answer... sort of. Hot Hardware has received a shiny new Alienware Area-51 ALX, complete with twin ATI Radeon HD 5970 GPUs, a self-contained LED system that stays lit even when the rig is unplugged (could be a great or awful thing, actually) and Intel's Core i7-980X Extreme Edition to boot. We're told that a full review is on the way, but in the meanwhile, you can hit the source link for a few more looks at this here monster -- you know you'll be ordering one in a few days, anyway.
...Not for us Indians though.

Check out the pics.

Prebuilt 'gaming' desktops with ugly interiors and shoddy cabling. No thanks, I'll pass.

Half the fun in owning something this powerful is building it yourself. Have to agree with stoney on the interiors and the cabling too. What motherboard is that by the way?

Probably an OEM motherboard - never seen anyone except Foxconn do a board with only 3 DIMM slots.

Re: Alienware Will Be the 1st to Release Gaming Desktops Based on Intel's Six-Cores P

As i said in the main Post.. (Not for us Indians).. we indians and perhaps even not all Americans go for these. They all wanan have a "Own Made" systems. These are just for ppl who like PC gaming and use it like for just gaming and order it from them. BTW, i wont really agree to Ugly looks.. but well.. depends on the taste..

I wouldnt buy Alienware ever.. mainly coz of its price.. otherwise i might think. Although i'd love to see Alienware LCDs, Keyboards, Mice, CPU Towers, etc in the market so that ppl like us can build our own systems.. our own Alien Ware systems.

That board is an OEM. Alienware never used branded Boards apart from Processors and GFX cards and Rams. Now that Alienware is a part of Dell, its gonna be using more of OEM stuffs. Dell too never manufacture their on mobos for laptops or Desktops. They use special OEM made for Dell by brands like Gateway, etc. The Dell laptops also dont have their own screens.. they use Samsung LCDs. Same goes for Desktop LCDs. Dell is just all about Housing a custom made premanufactured hardware and selling. Dell is just like any other Computer Dealer in the market who just buys the hardware individually from individual manufacturers and just Assemble and sell it. Just that Dell was lucky enough to go big and things worked out from his Garage where he used to take money in advance and then assemble systems for his clients.

I totally agree, the biggest put off was seeing those cheap cables and 3 ram slots... they are fleecing the customers..

^ Not just that dude, you must open and see their Vostro, Inspiron, Precison series Desktops. Also some of the Laptops. You'll realise that you paid way too much for that Desktop.

Re: Alienware Will Be the 1st to Release Gaming Desktops Based on Intel's Six-Cores P

Frankly if i had this much money to blow, i would've invested in a custom rig rather than this one. With the kind of rates they charge i would've been easily able to build two better rigs. And i see no point of having 3 graphic cards when right now i am happy with my integrated graphics, or 12 gb ddr3 and on and on and on

You're missin the point completely ..

This is like premium stuff.. even though its not crazy-popular.. but it still sells (.. the rich brats, as manish said)

Sure you would be better off buying-assembling a much more powerful rig which would also be future-proof/upgradable.
