Alienware refreshes M14x, M17x and M18x with new graphics, same old processors

Sure, they may look the same, but Alienware’s decided to give what’s going on inside its glowing gaming laptops a thorough refresh. Starting with graphics support, the 2012 update of the M14x, M17x and M18x will all be able to handle NVIDIA’s 600 series graphics with GDRR5 memory, bolstered by support for the new PCI Express 3.0 — which Alienware reckons will give double the bandwidth seen on version 2.0. Memory has been given a kick with 1600MHz dual channel memory now the base standard on all three customizable machines, starting at 6GB, up from 4GB in the older models. Capacity for the smaller M14x is locked down at 16GB of RAM, while the large M17x and M18x will be able to utilize up to 32GB. Additionally, these freshened-up models will pack Intel Core i7 processors — but it’s the Sandy Bridge kind. While an Ivy Bridge version is logically the next step, it looks like we’ll have to wait for Intel to let its new hardware out to play before we see it in these gaming laptops.                   More
