Alienware and AMD Get Back Together: Dell Tips New Gaming Laptops With Ryzen 5000 CPUs

From PC Mag: Alienware and parent company Dell are both releasing new AMD-based gaming laptops—for the first time in over a decade, in the case of the former.

The marquee product in this lineup is the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5, which will use Ryzen 5000 H-Series processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics. Dell, in its own G family of less expensive gaming notebooks, is also releasing a new G15 machine with both Ryzen and Intel variants.

Alienware’s last AMD-based laptop launched in 2007, and it’s safe to say its laptop processors have come a long way since then. In particular, the newest wave of Ryzen mobile processors, dubbed "Cezanne" during their development and using the company's latest Zen 3 architecture, has been delivering stellar performance with a good value proposition. So Dell is leveraging that in the high-end Alienware system and the more scalable Dell-branded G15.

First: the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5. This model will launch in the US on April 20 at a starting price of $2,229.99. In addition to the top-end CPU and GPU offerings from AMD and Nvidia, the m15 will offer user-upgradable 3,200MHz DDR4 memory. Specifics about which exact processors and GPUs will be used are not yet available for this unit.
