Alienware Aurora R13 Desktop: Key Features

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 R12 or R10.
  • Compared to its predecessor, while running at idle, the Alienware Aurora ranges from 13% to 16% quieter depending on the configuration selected with available CPU liquid cooling.
  • During CPU-intensive tasks the new Aurora is up to 9% quieter than its predecessor. While overclocked with 175W devoted to the CPU, the new Aurora is up to 13% quieter.
  • CPU temperatures have been recorded at up to 3% lower when comparing the new Alienware Aurora to its predecessor when both had CPU liquid cooling, and both were served the same 160W of power.
  • 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 Aurora R12.
  • Our AlienFX customizable lighting capabilities have doubled. The previous Aurora R12 desktop contained a maximum of 4 externally-facing lighting zones. The next generation of Aurora will support up to 8 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.
