As if Dell’s Alienware computers weren’t already monsters, they are now giving their new Alienware 18 laptop even more power with an overclocked 4.4GHz Intel Core i7 chip. On Thursday they also announced a new 17 inch laptop that has an optional i7 chip that overclocked past the 4.0GHz point.
Overclocking a processor is pretty common in the gaming world. It boosts the PC performance and makes everything run a lot faster. Intel and Micro Devices are always trying to find new ways of cranking up their clock speeds and are always fighting to make computers run faster than ever. This is a very good thing.
Most of the time chips operate in the 1.4GHz to 3GHz range. And usually chip makers just add more cores to speed things up rather than overclocking them. But there are always those people out there who are just never satisfied and always have to push things as far as they will go just to make sure that they have the best of the best. For those people, Alienware already has you covered. You don’t even have to mod anything to have the best of the best.
Overclocking like this can cause some heat issues, but Dell thought ahead and made some changes to the design of the laptop to compensate for it and make sure it doesn’t overheat or cause any damage.
Both of the laptops support up to 32GB of RAM. The battery life of them hasn’t been posted anywhere yet, but lets be real, with this kind of power it would probably last for like 5 minutes. Luckily, no one is going to get these laptops for the battery life.
