Dell Alienware x15 with no ports releasing this month!

Dell is coming up with a launch on an ultrathin Alienware gaming laptop, this eventually means the end for the four-year-old Alienware m15 series in the process.

The latest arrival is known as Alienware x15, the model will be one of the thinnest 15.6-inch gaming laptops with GeForce RTX 3080 graphics at just 15.9 mm to 16.3 mm which depends on the display configuration.

Dell had to formulate its own Gallium-Silicone liquid metal solution (RTX 3080 SKUs only), four sets of patent-pending internal fans, and a new 8-phase graphics voltage regulator just to reach the target thickness of 16.3 mm or less.

The Alienware x15 will build with magnesium alloy and CNC aluminium alongside a traditional chiclet keyboard with 1.5 mm key travel. All SKUs will have the customizable RGB "ring" bar along the rear made up of 90 micro-LEDs. if configured with the GeForce RTX 3080, the clickpad will feature its own backlit RGB LED as well.

With a thin chassis build, the GPU in the Alienware x15 will run at a lower TGP than last year's Alienware m15 R4 (110 W vs. 140 W). There will be no mechanical keyboard options and no ports along the left or right edges save for the single AC adapter port. Instead, nearly all of the ports have been moved to the rear edge. Tobii eye-tracking, RJ-45, and the rarely used Alienware Graphics Amplifier port have all been dropped. 

The Alienware x15 will be launched on the 15th of June with the lowest end configuration of $1999.
