The RTX 3080 is much more powerful than the previous generation’s best graphics card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended graphics card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (ever so slightly) more powerful, but cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU, which is one of the best processors you can get right now, whether it’s for gaming or workstation use. It has also been upgraded with liquid cooling. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a large 1TB NVME PCIe M.2 SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to the task with an ample 1000W rating.

This is the first time we’ve seen an Alienware Aurora gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 priced below $1500. The RTX 3070 is even more powerful than the previous generation’s fastest graphics card, the RTX 2080 Ti. This is the card to get if you want to push 144Hz frame rates or ultra-high settings (or both) up to 1440p. It’s also powerful enough to handle most 4K games. It’s paired with some great specs like a liquid-cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.

New Alienware Aurora R13 2021/2022 Gaming PC

Unceremoniously called “R13,” Dell’s new flagship gaming PC features a number of aesthetic, quality-of-life, and performance improvements over its predecessors. In terms of future-proofing, the Alienware Aurora R13 is the first Alienware PC to come equipped with the latest 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors. That’s paired with a Z690-based motherboard that accepts DDR5 RAM. This proves that DDR5 RAM really does exist in nature. Your video card options are also great; pick your choice of graphics card from the RTX 30 series, from the RTX 3060 Ti to the RTX 3090 – on your own, of course. Perhaps the best news? According to Dell’s website, these configurations ship in early March.

New Dell XPS 2021/2022 Gaming PC

Until recently, the only PC option from Dell that offered an Intel Alder Lake CPU, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30-series graphics cards was the aforementioned Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC. At around $2900 for an Intel Core i7 RTX 3080 combo, it’s out of reach for many people. Now, Dell has extended similar build options to its new 2021-2022 Dell XPS Gaming PC. Compared to the previous model, the new Dell XPS chassis has a larger volume (27L vs. 19L) and provides more clearance for the CPU and GPU area to improve airflow. That’s important because the new Alder Lake processors can get hot under heavy loads. Like the Alienware Aurora R13, the new Dell XPS PC features a Z690 motherboard that supports the latest 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30-series graphics cards over PCI-E 5.0. These configurations should also ship in mid-February.
