Dell Announces G Series Notebooks and Desktops and Gaming Hardware

Summer is traditionally a season for togetherness - family vacations, backyard barbeques and outdoor festivals. Of course, all things traditional have been upended recently and the concept of togetherness has been redefined. As a father of two young girls whose job requires experiencing the latest Dell gaming systems and gaming titles, I've had to balance home with work. Sure, we might take turns playing our favorite games, but even in our cozy family ecosystem we all need space to do our own things. It's that recognition of individual needs that brings families together and makes me appreciate the Dell G Series even more - this is a product ecosystem designed for gamers at every level.

With its myriad of form factors, colors and configurations, the G Series stands out as one of the broadest selections of gaming systems Dell has ever offered. Its appeal parallels the strong growth of the PC gaming industry and the big tent of gamers it welcomes. What's consistent across the G Series ecosystem is the upscale design, performance muscle and great value - ultimately delivering the best gaming experiences without a significant investment. Dell is introducing the new G7 15/17, a powerful gaming laptop that stands out with its own sophisticated style that can easily go from classroom to gaming.
Completely redesigned - with a slim design, powerful performance and value-added features like customizable chassis light - the new G7 touts significant all-around improvements over the previous gen for on-the-go gaming. As we struggle to squeeze into our swimsuits this summer, the G7 15 is a step ahead, dropping by 4 mm to a svetle 20.5 mm at the hinge, thanks to the innovative hinge design and the black anodized, all-metal chassis construction. The same for its elegant narrow bezel display, going from 9.9 mm to 6.5 mm on G7 15 and 8.16 mm on the 17-inch.

The G7 is powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core CPUs (up to i9) and NVIDIA's GeForce graphic cards (up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q Design on the 15", or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super on the 17"). Its gameplay experience is enhanced with a precision glass trackpad, customizable chassis lighting and 4-zone RGB keyboard. And a discrete "Game Shift" macro key

instantly kicks the fan's speed into dynamic performance mode for heavy action scenes. Nahimic 3D Audio rounds out the experience with a 360⁰ soundscape with VoiceBoost and Sound Tracker radar. The new G7 17 will be available on June 23 starting at $1,429.99 USD, with the G7 15 available on June 29 starting at $1,429.99 USD.

Dell G5 Desktop
In the spirit of gaming desktops, Dell brings roller coaster-worthy momentum to the G5 desktop.

Cranking up the torque is Intel's new 10th Gen Core CPU, delivering performance upgrades for high frames-per-second and smoother gameplay. Paired with VR-capable NVIDIA GeForce GTX/RTX or AMD Radeon RX 5600 graphics cards for stunning 1080p gaming, you can experience strong performance and lighting quick responsiveness for uninterrupted gameplay.

During intense gaming sessions, you'll love the G5's four thermal mode options in the Alienware Command Center that's adjustable whether you're gaming, working, studying or watching videos. Easy to expand or upgrade with tool-less entry, G5 is designed as a compact desktop that makes it easier to game in a smaller space like a dorm room, bedroom or office. Its distinctive front panel design is accented by full RGB LED lighting and an optional clear window side panel, making it a stunning conversation starter. The new G5 is initially on sale July 9 starting around $699.99 USD.

As a bonus - and while we're on the subject of desktops - we're excited to give you a first look at the new XPS Desktop with a modern minimalistic design. Joining the XPS 17 laptop as the latest addition to NVIDIA's RTX Studio program, this desktop provides massive performance for powering creation, gaming and VR. Stay tuned for more details coming July 2020.

Dell Gaming Monitors
Take your pick with the new Dell 27 Gaming Monitor (S2721DGF) and Dell 27 Curved Gaming Monitor (S2721HGF).

In the flat screen category, our Dell 27 Gaming Monitor offers a reimagined design for gamers who want captivating visuals with VESA DisplayHDRTM 400 for graphic-intensive games. With fast IPS technology, QHD resolution, support for NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology, you can expect great color quality and consistency, a blazing 165Hz refresh rate and true 1ms (gray to gray) response time in Extreme mode as well as tear-free, stutter-free graphics.

Spotted with its new gaming-inspired design that offers both functional and aesthetic benefits, the ultrathin three-sided bezel enlarges the screen area. The intuitive OSD navigation with joystick and short-cut buttons at the back of the monitor is easy to reach and use, while the adjustable stand and tapered base makes for comfortable viewing and the smaller footprint provides greater versatility. Dell 27 Gaming Monitor is available worldwide on July 28 for $569.99 USD.

Designed to draw you deeper into the game, the Dell 27 Curved Gaming Monitor delivers truly immersive gameplay on its expansive curved FHD VA panel display. With support for NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible technology and fast 144Hz refresh rate, you will enjoy swift and responsive gameplay coupled with buttery-smooth visuals without motion blur. Like its flat screen cousin, this gaming monitor also features the newly revamped gaming-inspired design providing a refreshed identity. Optimized ventilation is achieved with the extra vents on the back for enhanced heat dispersal. Dell 27 Curved Gaming Monitor is available in China on July 17, expanding worldwide on August 21 for $279.99 USD.

Does a keyboard make a difference? You know it does. That's why we've pulled out all the stops to bring you the Alienware RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (AW410K).

Designed with full Cherry MX Brown Switches, its full-height keys are known for their tactility, silent travel and light actuation force, giving gamers incredibly responsive and tactile feedback (not to mention a 100 million-keystrokes lifespan). This thing is beautiful and useful at the same time. It features fully programmable keys for macros and key assignments as well as AlienFX per-key RGB backlighting that is Internal Use - Confidential customizable with up to 16.8 million brilliant colors. The keyboard is safe from freezing up during intense gaming sessions with 100% anti-ghosting with NKRO. With three different angles and easy height adjustability you can game comfortably, while a pass-through USB port conveniently connects to other devices. Alienware RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is available for sale on August 4 for $129.99 USD.

As you're potentially getting ready to spend more time outdoors, I also wanted to mention another rig that can that travels - the new Alienware Area-51m. It's a powerhouse on the patio and a beast at the beach available now starting at $2,299.99 USD.

Is that an 80mm exhaust fan in the back?

The case itself looks cool, the inside looks like shit.

They also missed the mark by not releasing a 4K gaming monitor.

Yeah not sure why they bother with a window. the interior looks bad.

The front has a lot going on and completely the opposite of a "clean" looking case.

Not that I would consider a pre built Dell but I wouldn't ever

That might be the most awful render of a modern desktop I've ever seen.

1. The motherboard is ridiculous(randomly placed fan headers & 2x4 CPU power).
2. The 80mm heatsink is not inspiring. After looking at images of the innards of Dell PC's it looks like that's their mass produced heatsink, but it looks awful on a windowed case.
3. The case fan looks like it was designed by a first year 3D design student that didn't know how to use a deform/curve function. Surprisingly, like the heatsink, it seems to be an actual real case fan they use, leftover from other designs.
4. Where's the Power Supply? Did they decide the POWER SUPPLY was the ugliest bit in this case and decide not to render that, of all things? Or is it a TFX PSU hidden behind the half-shroud rendered in the rear bottom?

Why would they put a window on this? It's so bad that I'm questioning why they wouldn't just show the front, at least it... looks like a PC?

assuming that is the long box under the GPU, that looks like their typical PSU design anyways.

Everything is one off and if you wanted to upgrade or change anything more than RAM CPU and GPU you cant and can only do the GPU if the PSU has enough juice to handle it

The laptop is a big no from me, prioritising how thin they can make it appear isn't on the top of my list.
I don't want a "gaming" laptop that uses a low power CPU that will constantly throttle.

If it's anything like their alienware designs, that whole back part that's raised has a giant heatsink array or two with full exhaust. It looks like they used the same design from the pic.



It's pretty decent cooling tbh.

Someone with enough IQ to explain Dell, please tell my why the hell there are 2x 4 pin EPS connectors when I see only 1 CPU socket.

Also, don't get a see through side panel if you can't afford to make a good looking cooler that outperforms the stock cooler.

In terms of Dell's lineup, G is more budget than Alienware.

You sure your I.Q. is up to the explanation?
Most motherboards come with an 8 pin EPS connector.
