Dell and Alienware Bring New VR Hardware to E3

Alienware and Dell are bringing their latest virtual reality (VR) ready machines to E3 2017, and they’re bringing VR to the masses with what Dell believe to be a much more affordable VR solution. E3 2017 has been great for VR videogames thus far, but will it convince gamers to buy a VR-ready desktop?

Alienware first debuted two new models of their Area-51 desktop, with AMD Threadripped and Intel X-Series CPUs.

Not content simply bringing desktops to the show, Alienware also introduced a line of gaming monitors, keyboards and mice – all complete with the premium quality you’d expect from an Alienware product.

But for gamers on the go, a desktop just won’t suffice – which is of course why the Alienware 15 notebook exists – and now, complete with a GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q GPU in the machine, the notebook will be running the very best-looking games available – which includes VR, of course.

And then there’s Dell, Alienware’s more conventional little brother. Not content letting Alienware take all the high-end VR glory, Dell have introduced a brand-new Inspiron Gaming Desktop, which even features liquid cooling – very fancy. The VR-capable desktops start at $599 USD, a very attractive price, considering how expensive some VR-ready PCs can be.

Frank Azor, Alienware, Dell Gaming and XPS vice president relishes the opportunity to share their PCs with the world; “I love arriving at E3 every year to watch fans get blown away by our latest PC gaming innovations and this year is no exception.”

Azor continues; “Our fans’ passion for Alienware and our gaming PCs is our lifeblood, and it’s only through our equal passion and commitment in delivering bleeding-edge innovation, design and performance, that we continue to exceed expectations and deliver on their requests.”

E3 attendees interested should stop by the South Exhibit Hall to see all of Dell and Alienware’s new kit.
