11th Gen Intel Core Alienware Aurora R12 and Dell XPS Desktop Are Coming to Malaysia
Looking to get yourself a new desktop PC? Or perhaps looking to get one with the new 11th Gen Intel Core CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series but it’s hard to find individual parts due to a stock shortage? Fret not as you have the new Alienware Aurora R12 and Dell XPS Desktop coming to Malaysia very soon.
Alienware Aurora R12
For those looking to get a gaming-focused desktop PC, the Alienware Aurora R12 is the one for you. It comes equipped with the 11th Gen Intel Core processors, custom-engineered NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, AlienFX RGB LED lighting, innovative PSU swing arm, and tool-less upgradable chassis.
The custom-engineered NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU that comes with the Alienware Aurora R12 is built with cooling, airflow and efficiency in mind. It features:
- Extensive cooling – The new thermal design includes quad 10mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapour chambers. This provides exceptional gaming performance and is the company’s largest diameter heat pipe design to date.
- Innovative airflow – The way air moves through the card is unique in itself—it has a dual axial fan design with positive rear pressure relief. This allows heat to escape from specially located vents, helping to aid with flow and thermal management.
- Maximum efficiency – These custom graphics cards have been designed to maximise space. They are short (measuring 267mm in length), cover 2.5x PCI slots (vs. 3) and offer 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors.
The Alienware Aurora R12 will be available in Malaysia sometime end of March 2021 with retail prices starting from RM6,699 for the 11th Gen Intel Core i5, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti configuration. As usual, you have the choice of Dark Side of the Moon and Lunar Light colours.
We believe the Alienware Aurora R12 and Aurora R11 hardware shouldn’t be much different, but we will update it accordingly if and when new details surface.
Dell XPS Desktop
The new Dell XPS Desktop is for those who are more focused on content creation or would rather have something more versatile but in a compact body. It’s now smaller than before, going from 23.7L to 19L, but it still retains its expandability. After all, you have 4 HDD slots, 3 tool-less backplane slots, and the same CPU, GPU, and RAM capabilities. Speaking of capabilities, it will be powered by the new 11th Gen Intel Core processors and you have the option of up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card.
For PSU, you have the choice of a 360W and 500W one. As for cooling, Dell is boasting optimal airflow all around, including voltage regulator cooling to ensure there is adequate power being pumped into the CPU at all times. It’s also said to run relatively quiet as the system fan speed goes up to 4,500RPM.
The new Dell XPS Desktop will be available in Malaysia sometime end of March 2021 with retail prices starting from RM3,699 for the 11th Gen Intel Core i5, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 512GB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 configuration.
