The search for run demanding AAA games anywhere It has long been A dream of PC users and manufacturers. The closest we have come is the Nintendo Switch, which made console games portable in a way that no previous portable gaming device could do. Business as Razer They have tried to replicate this in the PC market. But now Dell is taking action with the device Alienware Concept UFO at the CES 2020 fair.
Dell Alienware Concept UFO
Featured above, the new “handheld” computer It is basically a complete PC with Windows. According to the reports, it focuses, as expected, in the games. The UFO Concept includes a 8-inch screen and a resolution of 1900 x 1200 pixels in a factor of portable form very similar to that of the aforementioned Nintendo Switch, with detachable controls. The device in general seems a bit thicker than the Switch, which also seems to make the control a bit more ergonomic.
When turning the Alienware Concept UFO we can see that the back of the screen panel is made of more white aluminum with hexagonal honeycomb vents, similar to what is used in the Area-51m cooling. However, the panel also functions as a downward folding support foot, which reveals a black metallic backrest.
The device on display uses a 10th generation Intel Lake Ice processor. It also works with a 65-watt power block. During the presentation you could see as I was running the titles F1 2019, World War Z and Mortal Kombat 11 with a number of decent frames, although in quite low configurations. On the screen, we will find the power and volume buttons, a USB-C port and a headphone jack.
Now, normally, Nintendo, an extremely protective company of its intellectual property, will try to prevent something like this from going to market. However, we believe that will not apply here. This is because it is not really a direct competitor of the Switch console. Alienware PCs are quite expensive. In fact, we can expect its price to be more similar to that of a portable gamer computer than that of a portable console.
Your exit to the market is not insured
Unfortunately, it's just a concept.. Although the press tried it and the unit seemed to work well, Dell (which owns Alienware) does not promise to go on the market. And although the company has prototypes that work, it does not provide any specification beyond the screen, and the fact that it uses a tenth-generation Intel processor.
