Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Review

The most recent gaming desktop from Dell’s premium gaming line is a beast. The 28 kg Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition weighs in a big triangular casing crammed with LEDs. The Area-51 has been updated with two GTX 1080 Ti graphics & top-of-the-line AMD Threadripper processors.

Design and Build

Area 51 leaves an excellent first impression. Most of the front panel is coated with black, glossy plastic panels, and it measures 569mm tall by 272mm broad. The Alienware Area 51 Threadripper is surrounded by RGB LEDs, which also rest on the side panels. The power button is the recognizable Alienware emblem on the front.

It’s depressing on the inside of Alienware Area 51 Threadripper. The graphics cards are plastic-covered variants that closely resemble conventional reference units. The Threadripper processor is cooled by a large 120mm water-cooler with a single 120mm fan. The motherboard is simple without fancy heatsinks, RGB Led, or added features.

Performance

The Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is Alienware’s star component. The top-tier CPU from AMD’s 2017 Barnstorming design sports 16 cores and 32 concurrent threads. The 1950X provides more than simply a large core count. It has a core Threadripper architecture and 32MB of cache, enabling quad-channel memory support and improved exact boost turbo performance.

There aren’t any games available that call for a 16-core processor. The 1950X is designed for difficult labor activities, including video production, CAD design, content development, and databases. The Alienware Area 51 Threadripper includes 64GB of 2,666MHz RAM to boost productivity, a considerable quantity that only the most demanding apps would need. But Threadripper isn’t made to compete with those processors. Instead, it’s meant to compete with the Intel Core i9 lineup. These components vary from the 10-core i9-7900X to the top-of-the-line 18-core i9-7980XE.

Alienware Area 51 Threadripper with two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards provides processing power. The two cards will also support the market’s abundance of Virtual reality headsets, panoramic panels, high refresh-rate screens, and multi-monitor configurations. A good gaming desktop capable of video creation and other graphics applications is also excellent for the workplace.

Alienware Area provides storage 51 Threadripper, a 2TB hard drive, and a 512GB SK Hynix PC401 M.2 SSD. The read performance of the former drive, 2671 MB/sec, is excellent, but the write speed, 659 MB/sec, is only marginally faster than SATA SSDs.

  1. Unusual, fascinating design
  2. Rock-solid design
