Alienware Area-51 R2

6-Core 5th Gen Haswell-E Intel Core i7 Performance
The Intel Core i7-5820K processor delivers a base speed of 3.3 GHz and can be boosted up to 3.6 GHz when needed, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a 15MB dedicated L3 cache and 16GB of DDR4 RAM, the 5th Gen Haswell-E processor can cut down on load times and improve your play time.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Graphics
Built for an immersive gaming experience, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 arms you with industry-leading technologies including dynamic PhysX effects, CUDA, and more. Based on NVIDIA's Maxwell GPU architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 provides optimal performance per watt.
With DDR4-2133 memory, the Alienware Area-51 R2 can achieve a read speed of over 2.9 GB/s and a write speed of 3.2 GB/s. With over 30% faster performance than previous generations DDR3-1600, DDR4-2133 lets you optimize your gaming experience.
Unique Design
The Alienware Area-51 R2's three corners are built to support 5 times the system's weight. Pivot the system towards you and gain access to the rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. There is even a button on the back of the chassis that turns on the rear accessibility lighting to reduce the need of having to use a flashlight. The angular shape is designed to have all the I/O ports facing you directly, making connecting a USB device, headphones, or even a media card reader easier than on a traditional rectangular chassis design.
Alienware Command Center 4.0
Customize your lighting experience with AlienFX that provides nine independent programmable lighting zones. You can create up to 512 trillion color combos with over 20 colors to choose from.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
