A golden opportunity awaits if you have sought a novel gaming apparatus but have yet to encounter the perfect match. Alienware, the venerated tech giant, has unveiled its latest gem, the Aurora R16 desktop, a revamped iteration of its flagship device. Although the Aurora R16 follows hot on the heels of the Aurora R15, it distinguishes itself with an entirely different configuration and attributes.

At a cursory glance, one cannot help but observe the abandonment of the line’s erstwhile triangular silhouette, supplanted by the sleek rectangular Legend 3 design, which had previously adorned their gaming laptops earlier this year. 

Despite this transformation, the Aurora 16 boasts a remarkable 40 percent reduction in size compared to its predecessor, all while retaining its internal volume, thereby preserving its upgradability. Additionally, the Aurora R16 debuts the highly anticipated Alienware Command Center, specifically tailored for desktops.

Among the standout features of the Aurora R16 desktop by Alienware are a commendable 20 percent decrease in acoustics, a notable seven percent reduction in temperatures, and up to ten percent lower CPU utilization compared to the Aurora R15. Moreover, it now incorporates larger air intakes and exhausts, boasting an impressive 54.5 percent increase in open ratio. 

The Aurora R16 is further equipped with two M.2 PCIe slots, accommodating up to 8TB of storage, and it supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E and 2.5 Gbps ethernet connections. Priced at $1,750, Alienware’s Aurora R16 desktop is available for immediate purchase.

Notably, the device will be offered a choice of either RTX 4070 or RTX 4070 Ti models in the US and Canada, while European and Asian markets will also have access to the RTX 3050 and RTX 4080 variants.
