The company reports that the Alienware X-Series achieves its super-thin form factor by leveraging ‘premium’ materials such as magnesium and stamped aluminium with CNC for structural rigidity, thinness and lightness. The X-Series comes with a low VOC (volatile organic compounds) waterborne paint. Its gaming features include the use of Cryo-Tech cooling technology that features Element 31, which is a thermal interface material (TIM) concocted from encapsulated gallium-silicone liquid metal compound, Quad-Fan design for airflow (using evacuative fans and dual opposite outlet fans for thermal control, along with AI-powered Smart Fan control technology that enables independent control over each fan) and Thermal Control Circuit offset (TCC offset) offering five Tailored Power States (TPS) to choose from viz. 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, reportedly, capable of up to 12-phase (on the X17) or 8-phase graphics voltage regulation (on the X15). It features AlienFX stadium lighting (an independent and programmable lighting zone that gamers can personalise through the Alienware Command Center), panel options such as ComfortView Plus, NVIDIA G-SYNC on the FHD 360Hz display option with QHD 240Hz (for X17) and FHD360Hz display (for X15).
