ALIENWARE M11x BOOSTS PERFORMANCE FOR 11-INCH LAPTOP GAMING
Gamers Can Power Up with New Intel Core i7 Processor Options and NVIDIA Optimus Technology
SYDNEY, Australia, June 9, 2010 - Dell today boosted the performance of its Alienware M11x, giving the world's most powerful 11-inch gaming laptop even more muscle to please diehard enthusiasts who demand a superior gaming experience they can take anywhere.
New Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processor options combine with the latest Nvidia Optimus technology to provide the ultimate, High-Definition mobile gaming experience. Intel's Turbo Boost technology can further accelerate Core i5 and Core i7 performance when demand peaks. All the Alienware M11x processors are also overclockable beyond the standard specification to help maximise performance.
The powerful Nvidia GeForce GT 335M provides 1GB of discrete, fast HD graphics performance for more realistic gaming environments and virtual worlds playing stutter-free* at high 720p resolution. Built-in Nvidia PhysX technology propels hyper-realistic game play on the M11x that shows every dynamic cause-and-effect detail.
NVIDIA® Optimus technology switches seamlessly and transparently from the integrated Intel HD Graphics Media Accelerator to GE Force GT 335M discrete graphics when extra performance is demanded by visually intensive applications. Switching to integrated graphics during less visually demanding applications, like word processing or e-mail exchange, can help extend battery life.
"The Alienware M11x is the perfect go-anywhere laptop for people who want to play today's most popular and demanding games in high definition. With the new Core i7 processor and high-performance discrete graphics that automatically kick in when needed, you get a stunning visual experience wherever you are without sacrificing longer battery life for less intensive activities," said Walt Mayo, Vice President and General Manager, Dell Consumer Asia. "The Alienware M11x provides the ultimate performance for any power-hungry user without breaking the bank. It's a challenge to make the world's best 11-inch gaming laptop even better, but we've done it."
The Alienware M11x, available in soft-touch Stealth Black or Lunar Shadow, retains its svelte 2KG* figure and distinctive Alienware design with built-in AlienFX™ illuminated keyboard and laser-engraved user nameplate. It ships with a choice of 64-bit Windows 7 operating systems installed.
