CES may be completely virtual this year but Alienware isn’t short of surprises as they revealed a version of their Aurora Ryzen Edition gaming desktop that will have the latest Ryzen 5000 series processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics. This is alongside their other offerings like the Alienware m17 R4 and m15 R4 gaming laptops.
There isn’t much changed externally compared to the Intel processor packing version that we saw at E3 2020 save for the swap over to AMD Ryzen CPUs with colour choices running to either Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon.
The Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 has a number of power supply options but you can max things out with a 1000 watt multi-GPU power supply with liquid cooling.
