Weighing in as low as 5.51lbs and under 22mm, the Alienware m17 combines laptop portability with maximum performance graphics. For gamers who are looking to prioritize performance without sacrificing thinness, the m17’s premium magnesium alloy materials deliver weight savings while reducing thickness. This generation of the Alienware m17 includes an improved surface coating engineered to reduce fingerprint smearing and other typical stains without changing the hue or color. This stain resistant paint formula is a High-Performance Clear Coat – a formula that lets you feel the durable magnesium alloy within our award-winning industrial design. Available in Lunar Light and Dark Side of the Moon.
Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech is an engineering approach where an Alienware system’s gaming performance is never compromised by means of electrical and mechanical methods while maintaining system stability during the highest performance states. This is managed using methods, not limited to, heat dissipation through creative thermal module designs, fan and fan motor design, as well as exhaust and intake layouts and overall airflow impedance. In addition, the m17 offers improved airflow by directly channeling the cooler air onto the most sensitive cores of the system with 66mm diameter fan blades with 53% more CPU fan blades and 25% more GPU fan blades.
With all the latest engineering enhancements, you can expect increased power efficiency and higher speeds for longer sustained periods. Here’s a closer look at our innovative cooling solution:
Vapor Chamber Technology: Alienware’s Vapor Chamber Technology uses advanced methods to efficiently dissipate heat. The Alienware m17 is engineered with a dedicated vapor chamber in between the CPU and copper heat pipes. It’s all designed to manage the thermal flow and maximize performance.
Dual-intake, dual-exhaust airflow design: Our thin and light chassis prioritizes performance with a dual fan design that pulls in cool air from the top and bottom vents, and exhales exhaust out the rear and side vents for optimal cooling of the core components.
High voltage driving fan: The fire resistant, Kevlar-like liquid-crystal polymer fan blades include sleeve bearings, and 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulate air more efficiently. There are now 132 unique fan blades to cool both the CPU and GPU.
Load-balancing heat pipes: The dynamics of thermal activity across critical components like the GPU and the CPU are intelligently discharged across four 3.5mm diameter copper-composite heat pipes.
Dense copper fin stacks: The latest R4 generation of the m17 has a 35% greater amount of copper material by weight than the previous R2 generation and provides more heat dissipation to core components. The heat pipes have also increased by 40% for enhanced overall surface area and heat dissipation.
Hyper-efficient voltage regulation is the result of hardware engineering that enables graphics and/or processors to run at their highest levels of performance for extended lengths of time. By raising the number of voltage regulation phases we can deliver a clean and efficient power signal thereby improving power signal efficiency and thermal efficiency per core. The higher efficiency level results in capacity for increased workloads over time with reduced energy loss to heat.
The graphics story: An industry first, the m17 features unparalleled 12-phase graphics voltage regulation on all configurations based on the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30-series family to enable the highest performance possible for the longest periods of time. Our high-end graphics options now offer up to a 50% increase over the R2 generation of the m17 in voltage regulation phases to create our most efficient 17″ design in Alienware history.
NVIDIA Ampere architecture: The m17 R4 with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30-series graphics, features the all-new NVIDIA Ampere architecture with technologies like 2nd generation Ray Tracing Cores, Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Dynamic Boost 2.0. NVIDIA Ampere streaming multiprocessors are the building blocks for incredibly fast and efficient GPUs for gamers and creators.
The processor story: Achieve up to 6-phase voltage regulation on configurations with a NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics card for higher performance gaming for longer periods of time. And with 25% larger CPU inductors, top-end performance is increased even further.
The Alienware m17 comes standard with an exceptional 144Hz 7ms FHD display, 72% color gamut and 300-nits brightness – a visual upgrade that raises the bar on what can be considered “standard”. Despite its thin, lightweight frame, the m17 boasts a commanding 17.3″ screen and rapid refresh rate options.
Reduced blue light emissions: The laptop reduces blue light rays with a unique technology that lowers the exposure to high-energy visible light to keep you deep in the game without reducing image quality. Available on the 144Hz panel.
Uninterrupted gaming: For gamers who prioritize blazing-fast gameplay, the Alienware m17 offers a 360Hz 300-nits 5ms FHD panel option. This is our fastest panel to date offering smooth high-speed motion graphics and a sRGB 100% color gamut rating for a richer color range than most laptops. Additionally, the FHD panel enables NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to synchronize the refresh rate of your display with the performance your graphics card is capable of for smoother gameplay during high-speed action.
Bring the game to life: Experience wide viewing angles on a 4K UHD 500-nits panel option with a color gamut equivalent to a 100% Adobe RGB spectrum, capable of producing an exceptionally wide range of high-contrast, vibrant colors. Featuring a 25ms response time and 60Hz refresh rate, it’s ideal for gamers that prioritize high resolution and vibrant colors over speed.
High-performance storage: The Alienware m17 is capable of supporting RAID 0 (Dual SSD Stripe) configurations. This means that two drives can be configured as a single large drive, maximizing transfer rates and enabling maximum storage and performance. If you want to add even more storage space, the Alienware m17 R4 is capable of supporting a maximum of up to three M.2 NVMe solid state drives.
Rapid connectivity: Killer Doubleshot™ Pro technology enables intelligent management of internet traffic by using both the wired and wireless connections in tandem to prioritize packets. Killer technology will automatically identify latency sensitive gaming and voice traffic and send it over the fastest interface. This new technology is made possible by combining Killer™ Ethernet E3100X 2.5Gbps Wired Networking with Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i 802.11ax 2×2 Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 5.1.
