Alienware Aurora R16 Power, Performance, and Style in One Package

Alienware, a renowned name in the gaming industry, has launched its latest Aurora R16 line of gaming PCs. The new series boasts a fresh design, improved cooling, and top-tier hardware, marking a significant upgrade from its predecessor.

The Aurora R16 Gaming PCs aim to enhance two key areas: overall acoustics and thermals, and a revamped design language known as “Legend 3”. The new design offers optimized airflow, resulting in a 20% quieter system and up to 10% lower CPU and 6% lower GPU temperatures. Despite a 40% decrease in total volume compared to the R15, the internal volume of the Aurora R16 remains unchanged at 25.2L, offering a space-saving yet versatile aesthetic.

The Aurora R16, the successor to the previous-gen Aurora R15, features a vastly different design. The iconic circular and alienesque case design has been replaced with a more traditional PC chassis design. The new chassis measures 458.4x197x418mm and weighs 15.37kg.

An intriguing design choice is the “AlienFX Stadium Loop” pattern on the front of the chassis, which channels air toward the internal components. This intake features a 120mm front intake fan to draw in air from the front mesh design, cooling the internal hardware components. Other cooling hardware includes up to a 240mm AIO liquid cooler with dual 120mm top-loaded fans and a 120mm fan on the back of the chassis featuring RGB “AlienFX” illumination. The AlienFX loop also features the same RGB lighting, adding to the aesthetic appeal.

In terms of hardware, Alienware equips the Aurora R16 with the latest 12th and 13th Gen CPUs from Intel. The motherboard features a 12-phase VRM design with heatsink cooling and supports up to 64 GB of DDR5-5200 memory plus 8 TB of SSD Storage (2x 4 TB). The chassis also holds room for an extra HDD with up to 2 TB capacities.

On the GPU front, the Aurora R16 offers a range of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 GPUs with and without the 16-pin connectors. Power is provided by an 80 Plus Platinum rated PSU rated from 500W up to 1000W. The Aurora R16 also comes with WiFi 6E & 2.5 GbE connectivity, Windows 11 Home OS, and one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Starting today, the Alienware Aurora R16 is available at a starting price of $1749.99 US and $2299.99 CAD from Dell.com for the baseline configuration that includes an Intel Core i7-13700F and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card.

With the launch of the Aurora R16, Alienware continues to push the boundaries of gaming performance, offering gamers a machine that not only performs exceptionally but also looks the part.
