Alienware released a new Area-51 desktop PC system with NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GX2 graphics card and a motherboard with the nForce 790i Ultra SLI chipset.
â€œThe Area-51 is every gamerâ€™s dream system,â€ says Alienware Product Marketing Manager Marc Diana. â€œWith support for PCI-Express 2.0, DDR3 memory, a completely open and higher BIOS overclocking than its predecessor, and now the industryâ€™s most advanced graphics solution, the Area-51 sets the pace for desktop performance. Everyone else is just trying to keep up.â€
The nForce 790i Ultra SLI is the motherboard that gamers and enthusiasts have been waiting for. It is the only nForce platform to support DDR3 memory up to 2GHz for record-breaking memory speeds. Compatible with 1600MHz FSB Intel CPUs, it also provides the Area-51 with the impressive next-generation Intel 45 nanometer CPU capabilities. Best of all, the nForce 790i Ultra SLI allows for NVIDIA 2-way, 3-way and Quad SLI technology for unmatched visual computing.
One of the most exciting editions to the revamped Alienware Area-51 is the inclusion of the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 graphics card. Housing dual GeForce 9800 GPUs, the 9800 GX2 delivers SLI power on a single card. Up to 50 percent faster than the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra, the GeForce 9800 GX2 is the fastest consumer graphics solution on the planet. Teamed with the nForce 790i Ultra SLI motherboard, the 9800 GX2 delivers the most lifelike high definition PC gaming, the highest possible frame rates, and ultra-smooth Blu-ray Disc playback.
