Alienware Aurora R15 Liquid Cooled AMD Ryzen 7 7700 GeForce RTX 4080 Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 1TB HDD
The full specs include a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 7 7700 CPU, GeForce RTX 4080 GPU, 16GB of DDR5-4800MHz RAM, and dual storage (1TB SSD + 1TB HDD). The R15 is the newest flagship model in the Alienware Aurora lineup. It’s the only Alienware desktop model that’s equipped with both an Intel Raptor Lake CPU and GeForce 40 series GPU (the R14 and older generations are limited to 12th gen Intel CPUs and RTX 30 series GPUs). This time around Alienware seriously beefed up the cooling. This R15 is equipped with a 240mm all-in-one liquid cooler for the CPU, as well as three more120mm system fans.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700 CPU excels in both gaming and workstation tasks. It features a turbo boosted clock speed of 5.3GHz with 8 cores, 16 threads, and 40MB of total cache. The Intel Core i9-13900F is an even more impressive CPU (and it should be, since it goes toe-to-toe against the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X). It boasts a turbo boosted clock speed of 5.6Hz with a whopping 24 cores and 68MB of total cache.
The RTX 4080 is the second most powerful card on the market. On the AMD front, only the Radeon RX 7900 XTX can keep up (and that’s if you ignore DLSS and ray tracing). It’s much more powerful than previous generation cards, performing about 50% faster than an RTX 3080 Ti. It also supports DLSS 3.0 (DLSS 2.0 + frame generation), something the RTX 30 series lacks, and that increases the performance gap for games that support it. It’s actually only 20%-30% slower than the RTX 4090 while costing hundreds of dollars less. If you’re not convinced, check out our RTX 4080 review.
