The competition between laptop manufacturers in the gaming class seems to be getting more and more interesting every day. It is evident from the many series and choices of laptops that you can currently buy and use to play games, even AAA class.
You can choose from laptops that tend to be bulky, fat, and heavy, to gaming laptops with super-fast capabilities but a stylish, premium, thin appearance, and of course light weight.
One of the lines that we will try to discuss this time is the Alienware M15 R3 (2020) line which looks very stylish, lightweight, and compact. But of course with extraordinary high abilities, and you can use it to play many AAA class games in 2020.
- CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i9-10980HK (8 cores, 16 MB cache, up to 5.3 GHz turbo)
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q
- RAM: 32GB
- Screen: 15 inch 4K OLED 60 Hz 1 ms
- Capacity: 512GB M.2 SSD
- Jacks: USB Type A 3.1 (3 pieces), USB Type C with Thunderbolt 3 (1 piece), HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, Micro SD, Ethernet RJ-45
- Weight: 2.5 kg
- Dimensions: 360 mm x 276 mm x 20.5 mm
Pros: The performance is among the highest for a laptop in its class, the keyboard is amazingly comfortable for typing and playing games, the design is not bulky and tends to be thin and elegant
Disadvantages: Expensive price, trackpad too small for a laptop of this size, RAM cannot be upgraded (but is it not enough with 32 GB?), 4K OLED screen that is paired is not very optimal for gaming.
The first thing you definitely want to know about this laptop is the price, because we think the price is very expensive. Perhaps it tends to be out of reach for most gamers, and it is intended for hardcore gamers.
But indeed the price paid is comparable to the various kinds of madness that you will get in this 15-inch gaming laptop. Starting from the GPU only, the Alienware M15 R3 is equipped with a super Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080!
The RTX 2080 is one of the best GPUs currently available and is one of Nvidia's most powerful and front lines. But it did with some adjustments, because Dell was after practicality and wanted to make this laptop as thin as possible.
From the screen itself, this laptop already carries a 15-inch screen with 4K 400 nits OLED panel technology. Not to mention the kitchen spur which relies on an Intel Core i9-10980HK with 8 cores, combined with 32 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD M2.
The casing given by Dell to this laptop is also very perfect, not to mention the keyboard which we think is just right. Not too hard but not too 'soft' so it is suitable for use in playing various games.
In addition, if there are several manufacturers who are currently removing various connectivity plugs, Dell with its Alienware M15 R3 provides three USB A, USB Type C, Mini DP, HDMI, Ethernet RJ-45 plugs, and of course Micro SD!
With a kitchen like that, this laptop is of course able to devour Metro Exodus and Total War: Three Kingdoms in ultra plus 1080p settings, and survive at 60 FPS! But it's not surprising, of course, this kind of thing can happen thanks to the RTX 2080 stuffed in it.
For the battery, you can't expect too much, especially if you decide to buy the highest series that has a refresh rate of up to 300 Hz which is very high for the size of a laptop.
