Dell has announced two Alienware-branded gaming desktops. Models Aurora R13 and R14 are made in new design cases. The Aurora R13 comes with the 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors presented yesterday – configurations are available with chips from Core i5-12600KF, Core i7-12700KF and i9-12900KF, as well as various NVIDIA graphics cards. In the case of the Aurora Ryzen Edition R14, there is a range of AMD processors up to the Ryzen 9 5950X.

The Aurora R13 and R14 desktops come in the Alienware Legend 2.0 chassis, which have increased internal space for more efficient air circulation. For an additional $ 70, you can order a transparent side panel. Access to the case is still possible without any tools, making it easy to upgrade. The R13 is available in both Lunar Light and Dark side of the Moon, while the R14 is only available in the latter.

The Alder Lake processor in the Alienware Aurora R13 means a different range of components. While the Aurora R14 offers up to 128 GB of DDR4 RAM, the Aurora R13 offers DDR5 plus the option to pay extra for the Alienware Cryo-Tech Special Edition liquid cooling. In all cases, the desktop is equipped with a 750-W power supply class 80 Plus Platinum, for both models you can choose up to 2 TB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD and add 2 TB SATA HDD to it. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, 3080 Ti and 3090 graphics cards are available. Desktops come with Windows 11 preinstalled.

The Aurora R13 is available from the Alienware website starting at $ 1,479.99 for US customers only. The R14 version is also available only in the US so far, but slightly cheaper – from $ 1249.99. For those looking for a more discreet design, Dell has launched the first XPS desktop with 12th Gen Intel Core processors and a liquid cooling option. It will go on sale a little later, but the price will start at $ 919.99.
