Back in CES 2021, Dell launched the Alienware m15 R4 which came with an Intel Comet Lake-H chipset. And now, the company has launched the Alienware m15 R6 with the latest Tiger Lake-H CPU. It was the only Alienware-branded gaming machine among the other laptops Dell announced after the launch of Tiger Lake-H processors. Let’s take a look at the key features of the Dell Alienware m15 R6 along with its expected price in Nepal.
Dell Alienware m15 R6 Overview:
Design and Display
The chassis of the Dell Alienware m15 R6 is based on the brand’s Legend Industrial Design. Its surface has a special coating that reduces stains without changing the color of the chassis. The only color option available is called Dark Side of the Moon. Depending upon configurations, the Alienware m15 R6 weighs between 2.42 and 2.69 kg.
Coming to the display, you get a 15.6-inch panel with Dell’s ComfortView technology. Buyers can choose between 165/360Hz FHD and 240Hz QHD panels. The former boasts a brightness of 300 nits and a 100% sRGB color gamut. Similarly, the QHD panel is brighter at 400 nits and has 100% DCI-P3 coverage. It also supports NVIDIA G-Sync and Advanced Optimus, both of which are optional on the FHD model.
Performance and Memory
There are four processors to choose from starting with the hexa-core Intel Core i5-11400H all the way to up to Core i9-11900H. The Core i7-11800H forms the middle ground between the two. It’s quite odd that Dell didn’t go for the higher performance Core i9-11900HK which is available with the XPS 17 9710.
Moving on, you can configure the m15 R6 with up to RTX 3080 GPU (115W). Aside from the RTX 3050 Ti (80W), every mobile GPU supports Dynamic Boost by up to 10W. Dell Alienware m15 R6 comes with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. Similarly, it supports up to 2TB and 4TB SSD storage in single and dual-drive configurations, respectively.
Keyboard and Trackpad
Coming to the input, the standard model comes with the 4-zone AlienFX RGB keyboard with 1.7m key travel and anti-ghosting technology. However, users can also go with the more advanced Cherry Mx ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard that offers key travel of 1.8mm. It also supports N-key rollover and per-key AlienFX lighting. The multi-touch gesture touchpad comes with integrated left/right keys.
Rest of the specs
For I/O, you get one USB 3.2 Gen 2 port with Power Delivery. It also features Thunderbolt 4 on configurations with RTX 3060 GPU and higher. In addition, the laptop has three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, one HDMI 2.1, one audio jack, and an Ethernet jack. Alienware m15 R6 has Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless connectivity.
Fueling the whole setup is an 86 Whr Lithium-Ion battery. It is backed by Alienware Battery Defender technology. You get a 240W power adapter with the laptop.
