The side has abandoned the three-prong light bar decoration and replaced it with a huge Alienware font LOGO, but the side There is no side-penetration. In order to dissipate heat, there is a vent hole on the left side. With the hidden air inlet duct on the front face, the heat dissipation is better than the old model.
The main changes are internal, based on the alien custom MATX Z490 motherboard, equipped with the tenth generation processor, the minimum configuration is equipped with Core i5-10400F, the maximum configuration is equipped with Core i9-10900KF, and the maximum has 64GB DDR4-3200MHz memory The memory slot can be expanded), the hard disk combination is relatively rich, in addition to 1TB HDD and 2TB M.2 SSD, it can also rotate 32GB Intel Optane memory.

In other respects, built-in 1000W power supply, integrated 2.5G Gigabit LAN (Killer E3000), the standard configuration is Wi-Fi 802.11ac (actually not WIFI6) and Bluetooth 5.0, but Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i (2×2) 802.11ax is optional And Bluetooth 5.1, but need to pay extra. In terms of expansion, it provides a wealth of USB, including dual USB-C and HDMI and DP that comes with the graphics card, but unfortunately, the motherboard does not have Thunderbolt 3.
