Dell and Alienware Drop Four AMD-Powered Gaming PCs

If you’re looking for a powerful new gaming rig that’s powered by an AMD processor, Dell has some intriguing new options that are available right now. Today, the PC maker announced the launch of two Ryzen 6000-powered Alienware laptops,  a Ryzen-powered Dell G15 laptop and an Alienware Aurora desktop with the powerful Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is now one of the best gaming CPUs you can get.

Announced at CES back in January, the Alienware m15 R7 and m17 R5 (say those five times fast) are Dell’s new flagship gaming laptops in 15 and 17-inch form factors. Each comes with a choice of Ryzen 7 or 9 6000 series CPUs, up to 16GB or RAM and up to an RTX 3080 Ti GPU.
