General Features

VR-Ready for Today and Beyond

The HTC Vive and Oculus-certified Aurora was engineered to exceed today's virtual reality requirements and was designed to create an efficient use of space. The top of the system provides a natural place to rest your VR headset when not in use, and with a conveniently placed handle located near the top, you can organize your wires in one place, running them to the back of the system and out of the way. With 15 USB ports, this system is more than ready to handle everything needed to attach your VR headset. And with convenient tool-less access, it offers easy upgradeability for the next wave of VR.

Designed to Keep Cool

Inspired by the thermal ergonomics of the Area-51, the Aurora provides optimal air intake on the front and right panels and an exhaust fan on top for maximum airflow and cooling of internal components.

Packed with Power

The Aurora is Alienware's smallest mid-tower gaming desktop to offer both dual graphics and liquid cooling. To give you powerhouse performance, it's packed with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card and NVIDIA technologies like ray tracing, DLSS, and AI enhanced graphics rendering.

Innovative, Tool-Less Access

A uniquely designed PSU swing-arm keeps graphics and expansion cards safely secured and easy to upgrade, along with memory modules and up to 5 storage drives, thanks to tool-less accessibility.

Iconic & Quiet Design

Customizable AlienFX lighting gives the Aurora a distinct, dynamic look, and its whisper-quiet operation allows you to get lost in the game without noisy distractions.

Engineered to Overclock

The Alienware Aurora was designed to fully support custom upgrades, including factory overclocking on available 9th Gen processor options across all cores.

Graphics Capabilities

Tested and benchmarked at UHD 4K resolutions and beyond in games and synthetic benchmarks, the Aurora offers high resolutions and frame rates.

High-Speed and Hardcore

Maximize gaming performance and capacity with up to five solid-state drives using a mix of one PCIe NVMe SSD and four SATA SSDs.

Killer Wireless

The Killer 1535 includes Dell's ExtremeRange Technology with two external 5 GHz signal amplifiers to improve your performance at longer distances. The External Power Amplifier and the Low Noise Amplifier work together to increase and maximize your Wi-Fi range and to amplify your wireless signals so they cut through the noise to deliver your data as quickly as possible. The Killer E2500's Lag and Latency Reduction Technology accelerates your high-priority network traffic, such as your game, and helps make sure that it doesn't have to wait behind less important traffic.

Intel Optane Memory

Intel Optane M.2 Memory provides SSD responsiveness for systems with a hard drive. Based on 3D XPOINT technology, it uses memory layers stacked in a 3D manner and breakthrough materials capable of performance that can switch states 1000x faster than NAND memory cells. This 3D XPOINT technology is closer to the processor, reducing lag and increasing performance over NAND SSDs or traditional fast hard drives. This is a good solution for gamers looking for SSD-like performance at a fraction of the cost.

Go Deeper

Reengineered to support up to dual 300W graphics cards (600W total graphics power), the Alienware Aurora now features more dedicated graphics power than previous models.

Alienware Command Center

Now you have control over your hardware and software environments. A single interface transforms your Windows system into an enhanced gaming environment tailored just the way you like it.

You'll also have quick and easy access to your gaming catalog and be able to fine-tune settings for each title. Create unique profiles for games in your library and maintain those preferences as you switch between games.

Using AlienFX Lighting, you'll be able to configure themes, macros, and peripherals settings. Assign your themes to games for a more personal gaming experience and select from up to 16.8 million colors, predefined animation effects, and brightness controls.
