Alienware Aurora R12 Desktop vs. Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop

The Alienware Aurora R12 Desktop and the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop were released in the same year, 2021. Both systems share the same full-tower form factor that can accommodate a large motherboard, multiple graphics cards, extra storage, and better cooling solution.

Processor

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is like the brains of your desktop computer. Its performance determines how fast and responsive your PC is. Generally, a processor with newer architecture, more CPU cores, higher TDP (measured in W), and faster clock speed (measured in GHz) tends to be more expensive and run faster than others with older architecture, fewer CPU cores, lower TDP, and lower clock speed.

For Alienware Aurora R12 Desktop, you have options to configure it with a 65W 11th Generation Intel Rocket Lake 6-core Intel Core i5-11400 up to a 125W 8-core Intel Core i9-11900KF with a boost speed up to 5.30 GHz.

While Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop has configurations with a 65W AMD Zen 3 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 5600X up to a 105W 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with a boost speed up to 4.90 GHz.

Memory

The Random Access Memory or RAM is the super-fast and temporary storage used to handle all active tasks, apps, and games that will go away when your PC turns off. The more memory your PC has, the better multitasking your PC can handle without having to reload data from slower permanent storage that includes the hard disk drive or solid-state drive.

Both PCs have the same amount of four RAM slots meaning that you upgrade later if you are unsatisfied with the amount of memory on your PC. You can upgrade memory on Alienware Aurora R12 Desktop up to 64GB of 3400MHz dual-channel DDR4 memory. For Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop, it supports up to 128GB of 3600MHz dual-channel DDR4 XMP memory.

Ports

Computer ports are the interface for connecting your PC to its peripheral devices or other PCs. The most common peripherals are keyboard, mouse, monitor, flash drive, speaker, and printer. Most of them use Universal Serial Bus (USB) as their connection to your computer. So the PC with more USB ports can connect to more peripherals at the same time.

There is a total number of 15 USB ports available on the Alienware Aurora R12 Desktop, four more than the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop that has only 11 USB ports. On top of the number of USB ports, the type and version of each USB port are also necessary for determining how fast it is.

The Alienware Aurora R12 Desktop has thirteen USB Type-A ports and two USB Type-C ports. It has six ports that support USB 2.0 (480 Mbps), seven ports that support USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gbps), and two ports that support USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps).

For Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop, it has nine USB Type-A ports and two USB Type-C ports. The PC has four ports that support USB 2.0 (480 Mbps), five ports that support USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gbps), and two ports that support USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps).

Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 Desktop: Key Features

Built For Beyond The Game

Forged by the continuously passionate and compounding feedback of our fans across the galaxy within the stretch of our 25 years in circulation, we are proud to unveil the new Alienware Aurora gaming desktop. This evolutionary step where our Legend 2.0 industrial design arrives in desktop form echoes requests from our fans, engineered enhancements, and many of the features already loved by gamers and esports professionals in today’s desktop.

  • Designed from the inside-out, components are laid out in perfect harmony enabling performance, easy upgrades, and optimized acoustics.
  • An optional, scratch-resistant, and EMI shielded clear side panel will become available for the first time on all Alienware Auroras, globally.
  • Features up to 4x 120mm fans in our highest-end configurations
  • Our evolved chassis is effectively delivering 1.5x the internal volume compared to Aurora-based on Legend 1.0 designs.
  • Graphics performance increased by 5% using the same NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card while running 3DMark TimeSpy graphics score tests when compared to the predecessor.
  • Our AlienFX customizable lighting capabilities have increased. The previous Aurora R10 desktop contained a maximum of 4 externally-facing lighting zones. The next generation of Aurora Ryzen Edition desktops will support up to 6 lighting zones including various internal ambient and traditional lighting capabilities.
  • We’ve introduced a custom motherboard that places power connections towards the edges to eliminate any chance of airflow obstruction and eliminates the need for a daughterboard for front I/O to reduce internal wiring needs. Each USB port has direct leads into the core architecture.
  • Motherboard power connectors have all been positioned towards the boundary of the motherboard to reduce cable clutter and promote airflow. A meticulous cable routing system has been designed along the right side of the chassis to manage any service or upgrades over time with mechanically isolated cables.
