AW already offers the mobile extreme CPU from Intel which is can be overclocked like crazy and easily beat most of the Desktop CPUs. Take a look at the 2920xm/2960xm... they're incredibly powerful while running much cooler than a desktop CPU. Even overclocked they're more efficient than their desktop counterparts. An M18x with an overclocked 2920xm for example is faster than a Clevo with a i7 990x...<br><br>Having desktop CPUs in AW systems will result in a much thicker notebook (take a look at the Clevo monsters and you'll see what I mean) and it'll need more than one PSU to be able to run. <br><em>Desktop CPUs will kill any battery life </em>since they'll never use as few power as mobile chips when idling.<br><br>Instead of desktop CPUs, AW should simply make it easier to overclock the extreme CPU in their systems, in concrete terms they should <strong>stop setting lock bits in the BIOS/EFI</strong> which makes it impossible to adjust most CPU settings from withing Windows without modifying the BIOS in advance.Dimitrios commented on desktop processors in Alienware m18x!Dimitrioshttps://www.salesforce.com/00a7000000FzcCUAAZYes Alienware need to be powerful as posible ! :pHyncharas commented on desktop processors in Alienware m18x!Hyncharashttps://www.salesforce.com/00a7000000FzDcFAAVIt did strike me odd as well why all 18" laptops have desktop chipsets, while Alienware has mobile ones. It could be argued that because Alienware are gaming rigs, instead of Dell's multi-use XPS range, desktop chips should be the primary solution due to their better processing power.
