Dell today announced a new accessory called Graphics Amplifier which will allow gamers to enjoy desktop graphics quality gaming on their Alienware 13 laptop. The Alienware Graphics Amplifier boosts the already potent gaming performance of the Alienware 13, providing desktop graphics quality gaming at home while continuing to offer the same high-performing experience that road warriors demand.
“Until now, gamers have had to make some really hard decisions and compromises when they are looking for their next gaming system. Do you choose the raw power and performance of a desktop, or do you need the portability and battery life to game wherever they choose?” said Frank Azor, General Manager of Alienware. “The Alienware 13 combined with the Alienware Graphics Amplifier enables gamers to choose both, with an amazingly portable and powerful laptop for mobile gaming and then simply plugging into a desktop-class gaming experience when you get home. This is gaming without compromises.”
The Alienware Graphics Amplifier can be purchased by itself or alongside the Alienware 13 for $299, and users will have their choice of desktop graphics cards from both AMD and NVIDIA as options when purchased with an Alienware 13 laptop. The Alienware Graphics Amplifier connects directly to the Alienware 13 through dedicated PCI Express lanes, so any graphics card will have more than enough bandwidth to drive desktop graphics experiences. The Alienware Graphics Amplifier can house full length, dual-height graphics cards with up to 375 Watts of power. It also features four powered USB 3.0 ports, so gamers can plug in for instant access to their favorite peripherals and output directly to their gaming displays.
The Alienware Graphics Amplifier will be available to configure and order online on October 28th with global availability this holiday season.
