Alienware’s Area-51 gaming PC is a monster

The brand name Alienware is usually, if not always, associated with high quality, high performance gaming hardware. So when we heard of the Alienware Area-51 gaming PC we thought it was just another super powerful computer system. Boy, were we mistaken!

The truth is that the Area-51 can easily be the world’s most powerful, as of now, and most expensive gaming PC. But there’s more to the Area-51 than hardware – toss it aside and then take a look at the chassis the Area-51 comes with. In fact the chassis is the first thing that you will see so maybe it’s worth a few words first.

The chassis of the Area-51 is unique – it comes shaped as a hexagon – the whole of it! While this is a striking new feature the chassis itself offers a few more surprises – it is made of high quality steel and is very heavy, which means that the hardware inside is protected in the best way possible. To underline this feature Alienware says that the Area-51 chassis can withstand five times its weight in the corners. This is impressive!

The hardware inside is also notable – the Area-51 is based on the latest Intel X99 hardware platform and this fact alone means the computer sports an Intel Core i7 Haswell-E processor, which also happens to be unlocked for better overclocking results. The gaming PC also has 16 GB of quad-channeled DDR4 SDRAM, a SSD, a hard drive, room for more of these storage devices and no fewer than three Radeon R9 290X graphics cards for a smooth and ultra fast frame rate. The CPU inside enjoys liquid cooling and the chassis, which we talked of so much, has LED lights to attract attention more easily.

We don’t have the exact price list of the Area-51 but given the hardware inside the gaming PC will be very expensive with the most basic configuration starting at USD 1700. This should not be a surprising fact – games need high-end hardware and it is never cheap.

The Area-51 is now available so if you have the cash needed just go and ask your local Alienware dealer for this ultra-fast gaming PC.
