The Aurora is now available with the latest Intel Core i7 processors including an Extreme Edition option, processors with as many as 6 cores and 15MB of cache, and overclock speeds up to 4.3GHz i with Turbo Boost technology. These new options are part of Intel’s new IvyBridge-E 4000-series family of processors announced at the Intel Developer Forum 2013 in San Francisco. Additionally, Aurora is now available with the latest NVIDIA GeForce 700-series graphics and AMD 8900-series graphics options. These latest components provide support for immersive experiences, whether multi-display, 3D or higher resolutions beyond 1080p gaming. Gamers are covered when it comes to future upgrades with support for quad-channel DDR3 memory; players can also increase speed and capacity by adding additional hard drives or solid state drives within the 4 internal drive bays. “Alienware has always pushed the limits with the capabilities of its platforms, and the award-winning Aurora is no different,” said Frank Azor, General Manager, Alienware. “Hardcore gamers around the world will be able to play the latest games at the highest settings, on a system engineered to deliver the ultimate gaming experience for years to come.” The innovative ALX chassis (available as an option) is ready to take on the thermal and acoustic challenges of the latest performance components. It features an intelligent thermal management system that monitors key locations within the chassis to ensure heat is being dissipated optimally. The active vents at the top of the chassis open, as if the system is coming to life, to provide additional heat dissipation when required. The ALX chassis’ premium CPU liquid cooling enables overclocking and lower operating temperatures, while meticulous details like internal theater lighting and tool-less, cable-free hard drive caddies support easy upgrades.
