Alienware m15 and m17 received new updates

Alienware has revealed an update for the  Alienware m17 and m15 gaming laptops, offering new specs for their thin and powerful portable gaming workstations.

Honestly, you know them as being among the thinnest and most powerful gaming laptops on the market. And now, with a thickness of 20.5mm for the m15 and 22mm for the m17, the new updated versions are designed to keep Alienware on top with high-end specs and great cooling.

Moreover, they brought the magnesium alloy for structural rigidity and lightness from the more expensive model Alienware Area 51m for the chassis of the updated rigs.

What is new about Alienware m15 and m17?

Graphics improvements

Alienware m15 and m17 come with the latest NVIDIA technologies like DLSS, ray tracing, and AI-powered graphics. The Alienware m15 and m17 now offer the option of an AMD Radeon RX 5500M, including their first-ever 7nm graphics architecture on an Alienware Notebook, topping 1,645MHz of Max Boost.

The GPUs are helped by what Alienware likes to call incredible displays that deliver the best visual experience for each gaming experience. And we tend to agree an the UHD OLED displays deliver 300Hz  for everyone who likes some really fast action.

Cooling
