Dell and Alienware Bring New VR Hardware to E3

Alienware's first monitor is a gamer's dream screen

Alienware unleashes new gaming monitors and slick accessories

It definitely rocks being a gamer these past few weeks, from the gaming-centric Computex to the annual flood of E3.

It's also worth noting that throughout the rest of 2017, Dell will be the exclusive OEM partner for delivering pre-built, 16-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper systems to customers.

Next up are two 34-inch gaming monitors. For those from the other camp, configurations with Intel's new Core i9 from its X-Series will also be available.

The new Area 51 desktops come powered by either Intel Core X or AMD's Threadripper CPUs. Pricing for both of these models will be announced at a later date. Dell's Inspiron gaming desktop is aimed at gamers seeking affordably priced products, launching at $599.99, starting tomorrow.

There's also a pair of new keyboards, called the Advanced Gaming Keyboard and Pro Gaming Keyboard.

On the keyboard side of things, Alienware has the $89.99 Advanced Gaming Keyboard, which has KaiHua brown mechanical switches and ambient LED lighting. Alienware's Control Center allows gamers to configure all keys to desired commands.

The Alienware Advanced and Pro gaming keyboards run for $89 (about £70, AU$120) and $119 (about £90, AU$160), respectively. For PC games, the mouse is just as critical as the keyboard, which is why Alienware's Advanced Gaming Moses promises both comfort and precision with an on-the-fly DPI switch.

AMD is looking to take the enthusiast gaming PC market by storm with its upcoming RyzenThreadripper family, and Dell is apparently more than happy to embrace the new many-core processors.

Alienware's final announcement was that the Alienware 15 laptop will offer the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q technology. All Alienware gaming peripherals are available 13th June. Meanwhile, the Alienware Elite gaming mouse is a step up peripheral that includes a 12,000 DPI sensor with up to 13 programmable buttons, a customizable weight system and magnetic sides grips. Not one to let the opportunity pass, Dell and its Alienware brand has just announced two new gaming desktops, a notebook sporting NVIDIA's new Max-Q tech, and a couple of accessories to take your gaming to the next level.

Availability for the three Alienware gaming monitors hasn't been announced at this time, but we're assuming that it will coincide with the launch of the Area-51 Threadripper Edition.
