As the gaming community has come to expect from Alienware, they continue to design each new generation of desktops with advancements that enrich the gaming experience. With the launch of the redesigned Alienware Aurora R16, they’re taking the successful model of the Aurora R15 and making it even better, offering acoustic and thermal improvements and a new space-saving design, all while aiming to deliver the elite gaming performance gamers have come to expect from Alienware.

Here’s what’s new with Aurora R16:

-Optimized airflow: 20% quieter system on average, up to 10% lower CPU and 6% lower GPU temperatures.
-Space savings: Up to ~40% reduction in total volume compared to R15, while internal volume remains unchanged at 25.2L.
-Versatile aesthetics: universal design that adapts to a wider variety of environments.

All these advantages are attributed to the modern design language Legend 3, which comes in desktop form for the first time in Aurora R16.

Driving towards a more minimal, more efficient design

With Aurora R16, designers and engineers chartered a plan to achieve two main objectives:

  1. Create airflow efficiencies that enable a quieter and cooler system while achieving performance goals.
  2. Continue exploring the Future Minimal ethos of Legend with a streamlined, optimized design and customer first.

Punching above its weight class

Thanks to all the airflow efficiencies, the Aurora R16 meets or exceeds the performance of its predecessor with equivalent configurations while boasting a significantly smaller design. And with configuration options that will appeal to a broader range of gamers, we believe R16 will not only be a compelling upgrade but an introduction to the Aurora experience for many.
