THE LATEST INNOVATIONS TO ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH™ TECHNOLOGY
Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech™ is an electrical and mechanical engineering approach used to maintain system stability during the highest performance states. These approaches include creative thermal module designs, heat dissipation, advanced thermal and system control, fan and fan motor design, and even exhaust and intake layouts that determine overall airflow impedance. Our latest technologies bring you industry exclusives and patent-pending technologies that enable our thinnest 15-inch gaming laptop.
Killer cooling technology: Game faster and for longer periods of time thanks to Element 31*, an industry-first and Alienware-exclusive encapsulated gallium-silicone thermal interface material. Offering a 25% improvement in thermal resistance*, Element 31 works more efficiently than previous solutions pulling heat away from the CPU with double the energy storage capability over the previous generation*. Element 31 will slow down in double the time that it would normally take the CPU temperatures to increase by 45oC*. Indirectly, total system temperatures will benefit from this environment as well.
Four is better than one: Introducing Alienware’s quad fan technology, a patent-pending industry exclusive included in our X-Series laptops. This new design includes a combination of standard evacuative fans which move air through the system as well as, patented, dual opposite outlet (DOO) fan which move air through the chassis and over various internal hotspots creating a pressurized environment that dissipates heat and reduces external temperatures. Each fan is intelligently controlled and uniquely programmed to function individually to meet the desired equilibrium of cooling. This helps your system maintain optimized airflow and internal chassis pressure for better performance.
Intelligent quad airflow: Game with confidence and rest assured that your system is being intelligently cooled according to your type of gameplay and its thermal requirements. Each of the four fans independently functions to regulate and control system surface temperatures, CPU and GPU. Plus, each fan can independently spin-up, slow down, or remain steady according to your system’s needs, prioritizing movement of the fans that are positioned to enable the best benefit for your system.
Tailored power: Like an engine’s transmission, gamers can set, activate and manage five unique power states through the Alienware Command Center with this exclusive, patent-pending technology. These five power states are determined through a set of sensors and variables throughout your system’s CPU and GPU circuits. Depending on your needs, you can choose from Performance Mode, Balanced Mode, Battery Saver Mode, Quiet Mode and Full Speed Mode, which can also be toggled outside of Alienware Command Center using FN+F1.
Total control: The Thermal Control Circuit Offset is a feature that can be set within the BIOS if you choose to set a “cruise control” limit to your CPU temperature. This gives you the power and peace of mind to manage your CPU temperature within a safe limit you deem comfortable for everyday use. If you don’t like to tinker with your system, then you can game with the default setting set by Intel.
ALIENWARE’S COMMITMENT TO MARATHON GAMING
Game longer: For 25 years we’ve delivered technology no one else has. And we’ve done it again with Alienware’s thinnest 15-inch laptop made for marathon gaming. With HyperEfficient 8-phase graphics voltage regulation and 4-phase processor voltage regulation you’ll be able to perform at your peak for hours on end.
Prepared to game: The new Alienware x15 features NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics. Some of the amazing benefits that push performance from the new NVIDIA® series include Dynamic Boost 2.0 and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology. New AI-powered Dynamic Boost 2.0 automatically delivers the needed power between the GPU, GPU memory, and CPU for a larger performance boost than ever before. The AI networks in Dynamic Boost 2.0 manage power on a per-frame basis, so your x15 is constantly optimizing for maximum performance while you’re gaming and creating. NVIDIA® DLSS delivers a massive performance boost at the same power by using the Tensor Cores to do groundbreaking AI rendering.
Power of Dynamic Boost 2.0: Maximum graphics power on Alienware x15 delivers up to 110W with Dynamic Boost enabled and with configurations using the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 or higher. Configurations using the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3060 have a maximum graphics power of up to 90W with Dynamic Boost enabled.
Feel the power: With up to 8-core 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors you’ll experience high-performance action across your favorite games and applications.
AN ELEVATED VISUAL EXPERIENCE
Optimize your view: With the goal of smooth gameplay in mind, the incredibly fast 165Hz through 360Hz* panel options all have response times rated at 3ms or less. The 240Hz and 360Hz display options also support NVIDIA® G-SYNC® technology which is intended for a better handshake between the refresh rate of your display and the refresh rate that your GPU can provide.
Easy on the eyes: Each display option on the x15 includes low blue light technology that is hardware-based so you can game long, without any concerns or reduction in image quality. Plus, our QHD panel produces an exceptionally wide range of high-contrast, vibrant colors, offering up to 99% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
Advanced Optimus: Only available on the QHD 240Hz and FHD 360Hz panel options, Advanced Optimus enables the long battery life of Optimus, along with the immersive, tear-free, stutter-free gameplay of NVIDIA® G-SYNC®. Plus, it reduces system overhead to deliver optimal performance and reduced latency in your favorite games.
Windows Hello: Get your mission started sooner with a password that’s as personal as it gets using the newly added, Windows Hello facial recognition—available on all x15 panel options.

KEY INTO SUPERIOR GAMING
A LEGENDARY EVOLUTION
We built upon the purely geometric balance and blended bone lines of our iconic Legend industrial design and reached it to new heights. Experience a new dark core feature that removes distractions and provides an aesthetically pleasing side profile to hide all the ports and vents. Plus, an innovative, modified extrusion makes our design that much more seamless, and our stain-resistant paint design looks even cleaner with a new silky-smooth finish.
Enhanced AlienFX: Celebrate your thermals with lighting that makes heads turn, then spin with jealousy. The latest AlienFX hardware and software supports full RGB values with up to 16.8 million colors.
Light it up: Make your setup shine with new rear stadium and touchpad AlienFX lighting enhancements. You can customize the stadium AlienFX lighting colors to match your style, show off your steeze and revel in a new, independent and programmable lighting zone powered by 90 micro LEDS. For added customization, select X-Series laptops now have an exclusive AlienFX touchpad feature, which requires an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 graphics card, with an independent and programmable lighting zone.
Bespoke lighting: Easily manage your AlienFX lighting zones, edit peripheral settings, and save new themes you can then assign for each game in the Alienware Command Center. Then, before putting the competition to bed, try the “Go Dark” mode allowing you to turn off lights and go ninja stealthy without drawing attention.
More ports mean more fun: Let the lightning-fast games begin with two Type-C ports for up to 40Gbps data transfer connections.
