Alienware M17 R5 Ryzen Edition shows AMD’s Top-End Gaming Tech

On the outside, the Alienware M17 R5 Ryzen Edition looks a lot like the current version of the costume’s 17-inch gaming laptop. That’s because the big changes are all happening under the chassis, as it will be a real showcase for AMD’s new gaming technology.

That’s right, these Alienware gaming laptops fly with the AMD colors, from the CPU and GPU to the various AMD technologies that seek to maximize system performance. Whether you’re a video game player looking for a clean, toggle-free setup, a multimedia player who wants to work on a computer that can watch AAA games in your spare time, or just some guy who wants to play consoles on their laptop, size and weight may just be it one machine that completely interests you.

The Alienware M17 R5 Ryzen Edition comes with two options for the 17.3-inch screen: you can get 1080p with up to 360Hz refresh rate or UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) with 120Hz refresh rate. Both support AMD FreeSync and brand new AMD SmartAccess graphics. Although there is no information yet on the latter technology, we assume that it is a functionality similar to their SmartAccess memory system, where the data channel is expanded to remove bottlenecks and increase performance, though in this case, applied to graphics processing.

At the top end, you can equip it with an AMD Ryzen 9 6980HX processor, AMD Radeon RX G850M XT GPU (12GB GDDR6), up to 6GB DDR5 RAM and up to 4TB of SSD storage. As you can tell, it’s the recipe for high frame rate radius graphics that makes this one-of-a-kind machine, provided you’re willing to bear the cost. Yes, this is a large laptop and yes, it’s probably heavier than the one you’re currently using at 7.3 pounds, but we would absolutely love to have a laptop with these specifications, even if we had to break our backs. shuttle the damn stuff in your backpack every day of the week.

The Alienware M17 R5 Ryzen version naturally supports a number of AMD technologies, including SmartShift Max, which controls the power transfer between the processor and the GPU, and SmartAccess Memory, which maximizes the amount of graphics memory you can access on the fly. If you do not quite have the cost of high quality specifications, by the way, they also offer the laptop in a more cost-effective configuration with AMD Ryzen 7 6800H processor, AMD Radeon RX 6700M GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD at a minimum.

It gets all the usual wireless connectivity options, along with ports on the sides and back (including one USB-C, three USB-A, headphone jack, Ethernet and HDMI), so there are plenty of connectors for your accessories. For power, it gets a 64Wh battery as standard and an optional 97Wh if you really want to play on the road. Of course, this is a gaming machine, so do not expect to reach many miles by using it only on battery juice.

The Alienware M17 R5 Ryzen Edition will be released this spring, priced from $ 1,599.
