While there’s little to say yet, Dell has said the X-Series will employ an industry-first technology exclusive to Alienware. This is an Element 31 ‘thermal interface material’ that’s made of a ‘Gallium-Silicone matrix’.
The firm says this "delivers a decrease to overall thermal resistance over the previous generation and extraordinary improvement in contact resistance as shown in preliminary testing."
The X-Series also gets a new patent-pending Quad-Fan design. Similar to the new XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptops, it offers evacuative fans as well as dual opposite outlet fans. This cooling enables high performance from a thin design.
We don’t know much about the specs yet, with Dell only saying the X-Series will come fitted with 11th-gen Intel Core processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards. This is pretty standard for 2021 gaming laptops, with no AMD option that we know of.
Dell says the Alienware X-Series is 'arriving soon' and this tweet from the official Alienware account confirms more details will be announced on 1 June. For now, you can take a closer look in the teaser video below.
