Alienware x15 R2, Alienware x17 R2 features

As announced at CES 2022 in January, the Alienware x15 R2 and Alienware x17 R2 carry a similar design of their predecessors that were launched last year. There are, however, upgrades including the options to get 12th-generation Intel Core i7H or Intel Core i9HK processors, along with up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080Ti graphics, Alienware Cryo-Tech cooling, and DDR5 RAM. The machines also come with customisable AlienFX stadium lighting and features a backlit keyboard that has low halo backlighting support that illuminates only the letters on the key to let you better focus on your game.

The presence of the Alienware Cryo-Tech cooling technology comes along with the Element 31 thermal interface material, which is an output from Encapsulated Gallium-Silicone liquid metal compound. It is claimed to deliver a 24 percent improvement in thermal resistance over the previous generation and up to 50 percent improvement in the contact resistance.

Dell has also equipped the laptops with the Alienware Quad-Fan design where it offers dedicated airflow using evacuative fans and dual opposite outlet fans. The fans are also paired with an artificial intelligence (AI) powered Smart Fan control technology that allows individual fans to spin, slow down, or remain steady independently — according to the data they get from various built-in sensors.

For further thermal management, the Alienware x15 R2 and Alienware x17 R2 carry a proprietary Thermal Control Circuit offset that brings five tailored power states to choose from, namely Full Speed (max power), Performance mode (graphics priority), Balanced mode (balanced CPU/ GPU), Cool mode (low-temperature priority), and Quiet mode (acoustics priority).

The machines also have Alienware's HyperEfficient Voltage Regulation technology that brings up to 12-phase (on the x17) or 8-phase graphics voltage regulation (on the x15).
