The Alienware m18 is Dell’s largest gaming laptop. One of the biggest advantages of a larger form factor, besides the bigger screen and keyboard (this one has a full-sized numpad), is the better cooling. The Alienware “Cryo-Tech” cooling system features a large vapor chamber, seven heatpipes, and four slim fans that work in tandem to keep your laptop cool even during intense gaming sessions.
The latest Intel Core i9-13900HX is the most powerful mobile Intel CPU on the market right now. It boasts 24 cores and 32 threads with a maximum boosted clock speed of 5.4GHz. It improves on the previous generation Intel Alder Lake CPU with more cores, a bigger cache, and support for faster RAM. This laptop chip is fast enough to outbench the desktop i9-12900K in Geekbench. That’s pretty impressive.
The RTX 4080 mobile GPU performs about 20%-35% faster than the RTX 3080 Ti mobile. Compared to desktop variants, the mobile RTX 4080 approaches a performance level similar to the desktop RTX 3070 Ti. It’s definitely more than enough power to run games on the native 1920×1200 display at or close to maximum settings. Heck you might be able to get away with ray tracing… on a laptop. RTX 40 series cards also support DLSS 3.0, which is essentially DLSS 2.0 plus frame generation. For games that support it (like Hogwarts Legacy) this is a massive FPS increase over even DLSS 2.0. It’s pretty much a necessity on ray-traced modern games.
