Drive Control Corporation’s (DCC) distribution of the Alienware PC gaming series represents an important move in a marketplace that continues to show noteworthy growth. The PC gaming market is a core focus for Dell EMC and the company expects it to grow over the next five years.
In line with Dell EMC’s focus, DCC now offers the new Alienware series which includes the 15- and 17-inch models to the South African reseller channel which is packed with compelling and powerful features, optimised for gaming consumers. The Alienware series for example is VR-capable and has VR-certified configurations available.
Comments Heinrich Pretorius, Dell EMC consumer product specialist at DCC: “Offering the Alienware range to the channel enables our resellers to proactively pursue opportunities in this exciting marketplace that continues to show exciting growth.”
The gaming PCs comes in a thin, industrial factor that includes an infrared camera with support for Windows Hello technology, providing an intuitive PC experience. The Alienware series is available in materials such as anodised aluminium, magnesium alloy and offers steel reinforced keys, and copper thermal modules.
The new chassis design delivers increased total system ventilation and enables a higher TDP (thermal design power) with most of the thermal dissipation occurring towards the rear.
