The Aurora R15 gaming computer from Dell’s Alienware is equipped with Intel 13th Generation processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards. Along with the new PC, the business also unveiled the Alienware AW3423DWF curved QD OLED monitor and the TKL gaming keyboard. So let’s look at their specifics.
Curved QD OLED Alienware AW3423DWF display
In essence, the new Alienware AW3423DWF is a less expensive version of the Alienware AW3423DW. The new monitor boasts a 34-inch QD-OLED display with a 3440 x 1440 resolution and an 1800R curvature. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and has a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz. The product’s manufacturer claims that it has a peak brightness of 1,000 nits and that it covers 99.3% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut.
The Alienware AW3423DWF comes with a little joystick from Dell that may be used to navigate the OSD menu. It should be noted that Dell has only included HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 connections. Because of this, external devices connected via HDMI can only refresh at 100 Hz, while the monitor’s two DisplayPort connections can refresh at a full 165 Hz.
TKL Gaming Keyboard for Alienware
Additionally, Alienware unveiled the industry’s first tenkeyless gaming keyboard, which has a smaller form factor and is perfect for those who don’t need the number pad and prefer to free up desk space. Mechanical Cherry MX Red switches and double-shot PBT keycaps for increased key label endurance are included on the Alienware TKL Gaming Keyboard (AW920K). It offers customizable per-key RGB AlienFX lighting, controlled by the Alienware Command Center.
The software from Alienware allows you to completely customise the keys and rapidly disable the Windows key to prevent accidental interruptions while gaming. For greater comfort, the keyboard risers offer three different height adjustments, and the underside of the keyboard has integrated cable routing options.
Cost and availability
Later this autumn, the Alienware AW3423DWF will cost US$1,099 and CAD$1,399.99. Later this year, the $150 TKL Gaming Keyboard will also make its debut.
