Aurora R16 Desktop

If you’ve been on the lookout for the perfect new gaming PC without any luck, Alienware might have just the solution. They’ve unveiled the Aurora R16 desktop, a revamped edition of their iconic computer. Despite being launched less than a year after the Aurora R15, the Aurora R16 boasts a unique design and distinct attributes from its forerunner.

On first glance, the familiar triangular shape has been replaced with the rectangular Legend 3 design, a style Alienware introduced earlier this year with their line of gaming laptops. The Aurora 16, however, retains the same internal capacity as its predecessor despite being 40% more compact, preserving the machine’s upgrade potential. It also presents the Alienware Command Center for the first time in desktops.

The Aurora R16 desktop by Alienware comes with various enhanced features such as a 20% reduction in acoustics, a temperature decrease by seven percent, and a CPU that’s up to ten percent lower than the Aurora R15. Larger air intakes and exhausts are featured, resulting in a 54.5% larger open ratio. The Aurora R16 also includes two M.2 PCIe slots, enabling up to 8TB of storage, and it supports Wi-Fi 6E and 2.5 Gbps ethernet. Priced at $1,750, the Aurora R16 is now available. It will come with either the RTX 4070 or RTX 4070 Ti in the US and Canada. Options for the RTX 3050 and RTX 4080 will be offered in Europe and Asia.
