Alienware's m17 has RTX graphics in a surprisingly light package
Alienwares M17 gaming laptop stands out for two reasons.
Firstly, as part of a new wave of gaming laptop is powered by Nvidia rtx 20 series graphics card.
Secondly, it's a surprisingly subtle machine.
As far as 17 inch gaming laptops go.
Gone is the protruding base of recent models and apart from some contours on top of the lid the M17 is largely free of alien war ship angles.
It's also deceptively thin and, dare I say, light.
This is still a 7 inch gaming laptop we're talking about though.
So the footprint is huge.
But it's around four pounds lighter than alien was previous 17 inch flagship off five according to specs from Alienware and raise up the M 17 is actually the lighter than the 17 inch raise a pro.
That's impressive as razor has been known as the thin and light gaming laptop maker.
You can configure an M 17 with up to an ATI x 20 at max few GPU, which is the second most powerful graphics card you can get in a laptop right now.
The most powerful GPU is the regular non max few 2080 which you can find in Elliot was much more happy area 51 laptop The M17 is certainly a beast.
I was able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider Warcraft 5 in full HD with maxed out graphic and around 90 frames per second.
Popular games like Fothnight, Apecs Legends and Overwatch are designed to run on anything.
For a laptop like the M17 wouldn't even flinch.
My model came with a quad HD display.
You can kid the M7 app with a 4K screen if your into that.
Just remember 4K screens eat up a lot more better and you will struggle to play demanding games with the 4K at more than 30 frames per second even with such a formidable GPU.
Similarly the laptop comes with an intel core i7 processor.
You can splash extra for an intel core 9 processor.
But unless your job or hobby necessitates some intense 3D rendering, you probably won't need it.
At around $3,000 the 2080 equipped Alienware m17 ain't cheap.
But it's a surprisingly portable laptop with enough horsepower to play AAA games for years to come.
