Maximum performance with NVIDIA SLI dual graphics
You can get in the game like never before with dual graphics processing units (GPUs) that deliver increased performance, better image rendering and higher frame rates. Charge through the most intense stages of your favorite games with up to 4GB GDDR5 memory in the available NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780M GPUs. For added impact, NVIDIA PhysX brings your games to life with dynamic, interactive environments while NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync prevents image tearing.
Pump up your audio experience
Get the power and nuance of cinema sound straight from your laptop. The speakers are certified by sound engineers from Klipsch® and the system comes preloaded with Dolby® Home Theater® v4 software for extraordinary audio and an easy interface — whether you’re gaming or enjoying other media.
Plug in with plenty of ports
Whether you need to plug into an external display or speakers, or want to transfer movies and music, Alienware 18 has you covered with all the ports you need. Alienware 18 comes with a Killer 2200 Gigabit Ethernet port, three SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and one USB 3.0 port with PowerShare technology, a mini display port, HDMI 1.4 output/1.3 input, 9-in-1 media card reader, an HD audio and in-line mic and headset jack and more.
Connect and conquer
A built-in Killer Gigabit Ethernet NIC identifies and prioritizes your network traffic so latency-sensitive streams that require maximum speed, like games or video chat, are prioritized over less-important traffic. See which applications are hogging your bandwidth and limit them using Visual Bandwidth Control™ so they don’t interfere with your games. Or go wireless with a Broadcom 5G WiFi adapter for faster speeds, better range and improved battery life.
Massive storage and monster speed
Make your Alienware system a vault of games, movies and music with an optional 1TB Quad Play solid-state drive (SSD) configuration — that’s three 256GB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration. You get faster boot speeds, data access times and the ability to write massive amounts of data in a flash with minimal battery life consumption or system noise.
