Dell should create their own GPU card. So far, Dell seems to use reference GPU on their Alienware systems. However, there are several impediments that can be combated by designing their own GPUs. Some dual-GPU cards are difficult to install or requires sacrificing a fan. Radeon R9 295X2, despite its dual-slot size, has got an external fan. Nvidia Titan Z, depsite its dual-slot coolant, has got a 3-slot backplate.Current GPUs are air-cooled. Since Dell has already introduced liquid coolant to their CPUs, I think Dell should offer the same cooling system to GPUs. GPUs are often hotter than CPUs.Dell can also add GPU settings to their command center. Features such as GPU overclocking, AlienFX for GPU and fan speed should be controllable by users.GPUs can also be aesthetically enhanced by Dell. Examples: AlienFX for GPU or Alienware SLI bridge.
I think Dell has to increase the number of PCI-e slots on Alienware Area-51.Installing 3 dual-slot graphics cards deprives users of PCI-e slots. This prevents users from installing additional PCI-e cards.Remember, PCI-e is not only used for graphic cards. Devices such as SSD, sound cards and accelerator cards use PCIe too.
Basically my idea is allowing support of the Alienware Amplifier to work with the Alienware Alpha. this can combat the weakness of not being able to upgrade the Graphics card. This will then benefit users by having a Console that can be fully upgradeable like a computer. The Amplifier is a great tool for the Laptop series, but i am sure with a few tweak will also greatly benefit the Alpha series has well. Thanks for Viewing, let me know of what you think below.
It would be great if you could use a hard rubber instead of the brittle hard plastic currently used on female side of USB, HDMI, DP, etc, etc port. I understand that in most instances the entire motherboard needs to be replaced in order to repair which is not only costly but really bad for the environment.
i think you should bring back the HDMI input on alienware 17 its one of the best feature of alienware. why remove it?
Same as normal amplifier expect it supports flagship desktop GPU in 2-way SLI/CrossFireX (single chip cards only so no double Titan Z or R9 295X2, alienware is meant for regular gaming not setting world records), desktop Intel K or X CPU (AMD equivalent) and a 1000 watt 80 Plus Gold PSU (to give you plenty of overvolting and future upgrade headroom).
I've just found out that Dell in it's wisdom have discontinued the 18 inch models in their laptop range.I think this is a VERY short sighted decision.Alienware are marketed as and I quote "The most powerful laptop in the universe" end quote.Dell have released a second rate device called an "AMP" which is "supposed" to increase the 17,15 nd 13 inch's video power, long story short - It doesn't.So this being the case, why would Dell remove what is known worldwide to be one of the best and most powerful laptops available from a range dedicated to gaming that is not only marketed as "All powerful" but also the best in the world.Not a happy camper.IMO - A very bad decision.Bring back the king of laptops........
Had a technician out to replace the LCD on my Alienware M14x-R2 and he said that the optical drive clip was broken, which requires the motherboard be replaced. 2 problems1) The motherboard should not have to be replaced just to replace that stupid little plastic clip that is really removable.2) Can't Dell come up with a better way than that stupid flimsy clip to hold a ribbon cable in? Dell used to do it better.
So looking at my laptop, the tackiest part of it is the express/service tag. Every Dell I've ever had, and my Alienware, it always wears out and becomes unreadable even while it is still there. My current tag has the laminated layer peeling off and it's annoying. This is probably a problem on the products that get transported (laptops & tablets) more than stationary products (desktops & servers).
I wanted to work with Dell or Alienware to make this game system that can play pc games and classic game boy games.It is compatible with any Game boy games and most steam games.
