You've never seen anything like the Alienware Area-51. It is more than an iconic design. It's a perfect convergence of power and design beauty. We reimagined this system from the inside out, and built it without compromises. It is an engineering marvel and a completely new experience that performs true to our legacy of excellence.
A legacy of excellence takes shape.
Triad chassis. Intelligent design.Get inside.
The Area-51's three corners are built to support 5 times the system's weight. Pivot the system towards you and gain easy access to the rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. There is even a button on the back of the chassis that turns on the rear accessibility lighting to reduce the need of having to use a flashlight.
Carry on.Transport your ultimate gaming rig anywhere. The rugged handles make the Area-51 more natural to carry. The shape and internal component layout are designed to have a low center of gravity to avoid the system from tipping when being lifted.
Easy access.The angular shape is designed to have all the I/O ports facing you directly, making connecting a USB device, headphones, or even a media card reader easier than on a traditional rectangular chassis design.
Designed to keep cool.Internal fans blow fresh ambient air, quietly and directly, onto the graphics cards and the internal cable management enables maximum airflow – satisfying your system's hunger for cooler air and keeping it performing at its peak. The angled design also provides a large space for hot air to escape where a traditional, rectangular chassis only leaves a small space between it and the wall.
Behold the jaw-dropping power of 12K.Unstoppable graphics capabilities can enable a mind-melting 11520x2160 resolution across triple Ultra HD 4K monitors (sold seperately). The new Area-51 is designed to support up to three full-length double-wide graphics cards. It’s not just the highest-performance gaming experience – it’s a breathtaking display you can lose yourself in.
Connect with confidence:The Ethernet assembly has been built by Killer™ Technology. It prioritizes streaming video and gaming packets for the smoothest possible performance when you need it most. Plus, it comes fully equipped with 802.11ac – the latest wireless protocol.
Processing powerhouse.New. Liquid-cooled. Overclocked: The Alienware Area-51 ushers in a new era of performance with Windows 10 and Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme processor that come factory overclocked and made possible with the new Intel® X99 Express chipset and 2133Mhz DDR4 memory. Do insane, intensive multitasking like rendering video or extreme performance 4K gaming at your leisure.
Big storage. Pure speedSolid-State Drive (SSD)
Solid-state drives are similar to the flash-based memory that you find in USB memory devices and have no moving parts, making them more secure and less prone to failure than standard hard drives. SSDs also pull your data from the drive faster and outperform 10,000 rpm Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) in read/write speeds, meaning you’ll also get faster load times on game maps and other information that’s stored on your device.
For people on the go, the potential benefits are significant.
- Improved performance — faster boot times, faster application launches and faster access to all your documents
- Durability — helps protect your important files from potential drops
- Longer battery life — lower power consumption by SSDs than HDDs
- Quieter, lightweight, and cooler than standard hard drives
