Dell’s Alienware is teasing a new laptop model lineup called X-Series that delivers improved thermal performance. Alienware did offer a few details regarding new material called “Element 31” the company is using for cooling for the thermal design. Element 31 is made of gallium-silicone that Alienware says provides “a decrease to overall thermal resistance over the previous generation and extraordinary improvement in contact resistance as shown in preliminary testing.”
Continuing with the cooling system, the X-Series laptop uses a Quad Fan design that the company says “produces dedicated airflow using evacuative fans and dual opposite outlet fans.” This enhanced thermal design and extra airflow enables a thinner design overall. The laptop features 11th-gen Intel CPUs and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics. Currently there is no word on availability and its price.
