First, we have Alienware with two releases. The Aurora R15 is a new desktop for gamers available in white or black and comes spec’d with 13th-generation Intel processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards. The Aurora R15 is available now beginning at $1,799.99 and is designed to stay cool with 240mm liquid cooling, five 120mm fans, and hexagonal side-venting. Also, the computer uses DDR5 4800MHz RAM for outstanding performance. You can buy your own Aurora R15 from Dell.
Alienware’s monitor is the 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor (AW3423DWF). Come with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certification and a WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution, this monitor is aiming to earn its price tag of $1,099.99. The QD stands for Quantum Dot which is a technology that allows for a slim panel and greater color performance. This monitor is said to have a brightness of 1,000 nits and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. For connectivity, you’ll find an HDMI (ver. 2.0), two DisplayPort (ver. 1.4), four USB 3.2 Gen1 downstream ports, one USB 3.2 Gen1 upstream port, one line-out, one headphone out, and a security lock slot.

Meanwhile, the Infinite RS has a new chassis design, four 140mm ARGB fans, a mesh-like design on the front panel for enhanced airflow, and more. It’s also the more robust of the two machines if you max them out and has room for a 360mm liquid cooling radiator if that’s your style.
