Alienware Announces Slew Of Revamped PC Gaming Peripherals

In a live Twitch stream, Alienware unveiled a slew of updated PC gaming peripherals. Furthermore, it provided information on the cost and availability of its most recent laptops from CES.

The mechanical Alienware Tri-Mode Wireless Gaming Keyboard is one of the first PC gaming peripherals that offers three different connection options: Bluetooth 5.1, a detachable USB-A to USB-C paracord cable, and a 2.4GHz wireless USB-C dongle (including a dongle extender).

A programmable rocker switch and dial, anti-ghosting, and N-key rollover are among the features of the keyboard’s Cherry MX Red switches, which have a 100 million actuation lifecycle. On April 14 in the US and China, the keyboard goes on sale for $290. On May 19, it becomes available everywhere else.

A mechanical model that is slimmer and more portable is the wired Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard. Additionally, it has N-key rollover, double-shot PBT keycaps, anti-ghosting, and Cherry MX Red switches.

Depending on your setup, you can position the keyboard towards the left, right, or centre thanks to integrated cable routing on its underside (and the USB cable is detachable). 16.8 million different colour RGB lighting are supported for each key.

It is currently on sale for $160. In addition, Alienware unveiled the Dual-Mode Wireless Gaming Headset, which pairs with your PC via a USB-C dongle included in the package or a 3.5mm audio cable. It has fabric-covered memory foam ear cups and a sliding headband that is 45 mm wide.

There is plenty of interior space, according to Alienware, and “comfortable contact points with your head.” It has a retractable boom microphone and can reduce background noise for your listeners while you speak (this is not the same as active noise cancellation, which it lacks).

The headset also supports Dolby Atmos and has 40mm drivers. Finally, according to the company, the battery has a 30-hour capacity. The headset is currently on sale for $160.

The Alienware Wired Gaming Headset, a second model, was also made public by the company. Although you’ll need to connect it via USB or a 3.5mm cable, it otherwise has almost all the same features as the wireless version.

It uses a 45mm sliding headband, memory foam ear cups covered in fabric, and a retractable boom mic with AI-powered voice isolation. It also supports Dolby Atmos and has RGB lighting. The $100 headset will be available starting on April 14 in China and North America and on May 19 elsewhere in the world.

The Alienware Wireless Gaming Mouse is the final piece of recently unveiled equipment. A dedicated thumb channel and sculpted right-handed design help “provide comfortable control during long gaming sessions.” It features separate L and R keyplates as well as optical switches.

According to Alienware, the mouse’s sensor can track quick movements at 650 inches per second and a maximum acceleration of 50G while supporting up to 26,000 dots per inch. It also features tactile grip zones.

The company claims that five minutes of charging (while the battery is low) will result in 10 hours of uptime, and Alienware guarantees a battery life of up to 140 hours. The $100 mouse is available today in North America and on March 31st worldwide (it was already released in China last week).

The business also disclosed updated pricing and availability details for the products it debuted at CES. Beginning on March 7th, the Alienware m16 and m18 laptops will be offered in every Intel and Nvidia configuration. The m16 costs $1,899, while the m18 costs $2,099 to start.

Meanwhile, the Intel / Nvidia versions of the Dell G15 ($899 and up) and G16 ($1,499 and up) go on sale on March 21. (AMD options will be available for all of those models in Q2, with pricing to be announced later.) Last but not least, the Alienware x15 R2 will go on sale for $1,799 in early April.
