Achieving engineering excellence and sustainability with the X architecture
The engineering and design teams have leveraged premium materials such as magnesium and stamped aluminum with CNC for structural rigidity, thinness, and lightness. Using high spec materials, the Alienware X-Series achieves its super-thin form factor without compromising performance in an entirely new design layout. Furthermore, under Dell’s 2030 Moonshot Goals, the X-Series comes with a low VOC (volatile organic compounds) waterborne paint. The sustainable, stain-resistant paint provides a soft, highly tactile experience for high-wear surfaces and is better for the planet.

The new Alienware X-Series takes the Alienware DNA to new heights, with significant features that allow users to play the best PC games anywhere:
An industry-first innovation, the advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech™ cooling technology features the Element 31, an exclusive thermal interface material (TIM) concocted from Encapsulated Gallium-Silicone liquid metal compound. It delivers a 24% improvement in thermal resistance over the previous generation and up to a 50% improvement to the contact resistance in preliminary testing
The Alienware Quad-Fan design produces dedicated airflow using evacuative fans and dual opposite outlet fans for improved thermal control. Additionally, the AI-powered Smart Fan control technology allows individual fans to independently spin, slow down or remain steady according to various sensors within the system offering performance control to its user
The Thermal Control Circuit offset (TCC offset) offers gamers five uniquely Tailored Power States (TPS) to choose from according to their needs – Full Speed (max power), Performance mode (graphics priority), Balanced mode (balanced CPU/GPU), Cool mode (low-temperature priority), and Quiet mode (acoustics priority).
The X-Series also includes Alienware’s HyperEfficient Voltage Regulation technology which is capable of up to 12-phase (on the X17) or 8-phase graphics voltage regulation (on the X15). This offers high-performance for longer gaming sessions
