Alienware M18X R2
Alienware M18X R2 is the next generation of Alienware M18X that we have reviewed before and its detail specifications. This time we have spotted Alienware M18X R2 Specifications leaked and of course we are going to share in this post.
There is no mention of an overclocked Intel Extremely High-priced Edition processor at this point. It’s worth pointing out that behind the vast amounts of hype, the Ivy Bridge processors will not bring any revolutionary efficiency improvements to the table, but they will supply somewhat far better performance whilst the power consumption remains mainly the identical.
Alienware M18X R2 Specifications
Alienware M18X R2 is powered by 3rd-gen Core (Ivy Bridge) processors and there are 3 quad core choices accessible including the Core i7-3610QM (2.three GHz, 3.three GHz with Turbo Boost), the Core i7-3720QM (2.6 GHz, 3.six GHz with Turbo Increase) and lastly the Core i7-3820QM (two.7 GHz, 3.7 GHz with Turbo Enhance).
What could turn out to be considerably far more intriguing are the GPU options. According to Dell Lab, dual GeForce GTX 675M graphics cards in SLI mode will be one particular of the alternatives. This card is a basic rebadge of the GTX 580M, but still the fastest mobile Nvidia card. The other alternative, however, is for dual AMD Radeon HD 7970M GPUs from AMD’s most recent batch of GCN (Graphics Core Next) 28nm GPUs, which comes with a boatload of shaders (some 1500 or so) and ought to be significantly quicker as nicely as far more power efficient than the GTX 675M/580M.
There’s also a third, and likely considerably far more economical alternative in the GTX 660M, but the Dell rumor guy doesn’t know regardless of whether it will be supplied in SLI configuration or just as a single card. The latter would be a shame considering that the 660M is a single of Nvidia’s new Kepler-based GPUs.
Apparently, the screen and resolution will remain the identical – an 18.four-inch WLED LCD panel with 1080p resolution – so there will be no try on a ‘Retina’-sort display with ludicrously high resolution, which might have been fascinating considering that this is one of few laptops that could truly manage games in 2MP native resolution.
The remaining details are far much less interesting and contain the RAM and storage options. All RAM will be of the 1600 MHz or somewhat more quickly 1866 MHz variety and the storage options are either 7200rpm challenging drives or SSDs in capacities up to 512 GB.
