First Look: Alienware revives the Area 51 desktop with a new look

1:15 /

A pyramid-like design and new Intel Haswell-E hardware mark the return of a classic gaming desktop.

[MUSIC] Hi. I'm Dan Ackerman. And we are here taking a look at the brand new Alienware Area 51. That's a classic Alienware desktop brand name that the company is bringing back for this new system. Looks a lot different from any of the older. And we read that it's like this big triangular pyramid they're actually handles at the points and you can lift the system up by those handles or tilt it to get to the ports in the back or on the side. Both side panels lift off, inside you got room for. 3 4 width graphics cards, you could put up to 5 hard drives inside and of course you've got newer DVR 4 [UNKNOWN] inside and this is one of the first systems with the new Intel [UNKNOWN] extreme addition, it has [UNKNOWN] CPU's. And the new Intel x99 chipset. If you're a super PC gamer guy, that's going to be really interesting. If not, you're just going to like the super funky shape, and that's designed to let air come in and then go out the other side, and go straight up the wall, so you can push this up against the wall, without overheating. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Alienware Area 51 [MUSIC]
