It is quite surprising that such a small space contains some blazing-fast components. The rig is equipped with a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-10900K processor (16 cores, 24 threads, 30 MB cache, 3.2 GHz to 5.2 GHz Turbo) complemented by a mighty Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 (24 GB GDDR6X).

Alienware Aurora 2019 Design

Offbeat, the look of the Alienware Aurora 2019 case is really eye-catching, discontiguous, and somewhat Alienish. For someone who wants to make their gaming room sci-fi inspired, this PC will complement the appearance. The front of the rig looks inspired by spacecraft engine turbines, complemented with glowing stripes. When picking a rig, you can choose from two color options, one is ‘Lunar Light’ and the other is ‘Dark Side of the Moon’. Both models look strikingly beautiful and pretty cool. Choosing a rig will depend on one’s personal preference, for dark side lovers like me, ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ is a one-stop deal. Colors and design being a personal preference, this rig might not satisfy everyone but we do appreciate the overall stand-out look of the rig.

Alienware Aurora 2019 Performance

The rig is overkill to the extent that it can handle a hardcore gamer pushing the machine’s limits. The RTX 3090 is not that much more powerful than the RTX 3080 in terms of frame rates, but when it comes to professional 3D designers, the RTX 3090 proves to be a lot more performant with more memory servings. Overall, this is a pretty impressive, blazing-fast, and powerful gaming Desktop. Next-gen processors equipped with all the latest generation components, 64 GB RAM, powerful graphic cards, and tons of storage truly push the potential of the machine.

Concluding Words

Alienware Aurora 2019 is undoubtedly the mightiest machine in the gaming segment. It is overkill for gaming as well as for media editors and 3D designers. This rig is best suitable for one who is looking for a top-of-the-line gaming desktop PC. Though for gamers we recommend doing some research, one will surely find affordable alternatives with almost similar specifications and performance. For media editors and 3D designers, if the budget allows, this machine is no match with others.
