After being discovered on the Dell Alienware Canada website last week, the mega-sized gaming laptop, the M18x, has been announced in the US. Dell has labeled the M18x as the “most powerful 18-inch gaming laptop in the universe,” and as seeing how there aren’t too many 18″-sized laptops available on the market, they’re probably right.
The flagship gaming laptop of the Alienware family are packed chockfull of the latest hardware with one focus in mind – to run the latest games at blazing speeds. The M18x will offer dual-graphics technology and the industry’s only Intel Core i7 Extreme CPU option factory overclocked to 4GHz. With wireless HD audio and video for latency free to larger screens and HDMI 1.4 for connection to 3D-capable HDTVs – you can expect to be in for a treat if you bought the laptop to game or watch your favorite 3D movies.
The M18x includes:
- An 18.4-inch FHD WLED 1080p display for the best visuals possible
- Powerful Dual GPU options with the fastest graphics memory (GDDR5) on all graphics options
- Both AMD and NVIDIA graphics options, in Crossfire X and SLI, respectively
- New Intel “Huron River” Architecture with a new factory overclocked Intel Core i7 Extreme Quad Core processor up to 4GHz
- Upgradeable to up to 32GB 1333MHz memory
- HDMI/Display Port output & HDMI-in
- Wireless HD & 3D output options, delivering low-latency high-def content wirelessly or output to 3D displays
A true desktop replacement, don’t expect the M18x to be anything but heavy though what it lacks in portability, it makes up for it in performance. No details on pricing or release date yet, but if the prices of their previous laptops are anything to go by, it’s not going to be cheap. Stay tuned for more details.
