Alienware has unveiled two new gaming laptops. The Alienware Area-51m R2 and the m17 R3 stand out mainly for their displays with a refresh rate of over 300 Hz.
Display refresh rate has become a real race in the mobile phone industry. However, this reality can also be seen in the world of laptops. Alienware has just lifted the veil on two products whose refresh rate is three times the highest display frequency of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. As Engadget reports , the Alienware Area-51m R2 and m17 R3 rely on Full HD 360 Hz screens. A frequency that should allow us to benefit from breathtaking fluidity.
Granted, there are already monitors that offer such a high refresh rate. However, by allowing gamers to enjoy it on the Area-51m R2 and m17 R3, Alienware is now among the first laptop manufacturers to succumb to this new trend.
Ideal products for e-sport
It should not be remembered that the higher the refresh rate of a screen, the smoother the display. In esports, in addition to visual details, fluidity is one of the qualities that players look for the most. Suffice to say that these new Alienware laptops should be able to meet the needs of the latter.
In addition to their 360 Hz panels, these new references that the American firm has just unveiled offer configurations designed for the most recent games. The Alienware Area-51m R2 operates for example on a Core i9-10900K processor 10th generation. Made up of 10 cores and 20 threads, the latter has a clock frequency of 3.7 GHz. The frequency in boost mode reaches 5.3 GHz.
A less energy-consuming processor for the m17 R3
For its part, the Alienware m17 R3 is powered by a HK i9 processor 10th generation. Although it consumes less power than that of the Area-51m R2, this chipset is still supposed to provide a rich and smooth experience thanks to the particularly high refresh rate.
Unfortunately, we do not yet know how much these new laptops from the Dell subsidiary will cost. We also do not know their availability date.
