Apple’s new “trash can” Mac Pro is pretty wild, but Alienware might have just snatched back the title for craziest desktop PC with its new Area-51 a funky, hexagonal machine. Similar to Apple, Alienware claims the design for its new desktop has some practical benefits beyond just looking insane. Without a doubt the PC is going to cost a fortune, but it drooling for the rig is free 🙂
Since the back of the desktop isn’t perpendicular with the floor, the company says you can push the unit up against the wall without blocking its all-important ventilation. Hardcore gamers should take note that the Area-51 will ship with Intel’s newest 6- and 8-core Haswell-E processors, and it can handle up to three monster, double-wide graphics cards. Just what you need to stomp noobs from the comfort of your dorm room.
The Alienware Area-51 ushers in a new era of performance with 6-core and 8-core Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme processor options that come factory overclocked and made possible with the new Intel X99 Express chipset alongside 2133Mhz DDR4 memory — up to 32GB in quad channel. Do insane, intensive multitasking like rendering video or extreme performance 4K gaming at your leisure. Experience a custom balance of solid-state and hard drives, enabling the performance of SSD with the storage capacity of HDD. Plus, 802.11ac – the latest wireless protocol – prioritizes streaming video and gaming, so lag is reduced.
