INNOVATIVE GRAPHICS POWER, AIRFLOW, AND COOLING
The Alienware Aurora offers optional custom graphics designs based on NVIDIA’s 2nd Gen RTX architecture. These custom designs are made with extensive thermals and an innovative airflow pattern engineered to prioritize graphics performance while complementing the Aurora chassis airflow as well.
Extensive cooling: Our thermal design includes quad 10mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapor chambers – our largest diameter heat pipe design to date – designed for exceptional gaming performance.
Innovative airflow: Another added boost for graphics performance is made possible by a dual-axial fan design with positive rear pressure relief – a new Alienware first for graphics cards. The positive rear pressure relief allows heat to escape from specially located vents designed to aid with flow and thermal management. This new approach is built with gamers in mind.
Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS): Using AI rendering, NVIDIA® DLSS delivers a massive performance boost at the same power when compared to other graphics cards at similar resolutions.
NVIDIA Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors (SM): NVIDIA's 2nd Gen RTX graphics cards come with the building blocks for incredibly fast and efficient GPUs. The all-new Ampere SM brings higher throughput allowing for faster data processing while offering improved power efficiency when compared to previous gen graphics cards.
Resizable BAR: Resizable BAR is an advanced PCI-Express feature available on NVIDIA's 2nd Gen RTX graphics cards that enables the CPU to access the entire GPU frame buffer at once and designed to improve performance in games.
Weapon of choice: The Alienware Aurora is the official PC of choice for the players and staff of Team Liquid. You can find the Aurora powering all the gameplay, livestreams and content creation in both Alienware Training Facilities located in Los Angeles, USA and Utrecht, Netherlands.
Get schooled: The Alienware Aurora is coming to the classroom thanks to an esports for EDU initiative that enables universities across the United States to develop their own esports programs using uncompromising gear.
