Intel’s seventh-generation Core processor, codenamed Kaby Lake, made its laptop debut four months ago, but we’ve had to wait until now to see its most powerful, quad-core variants. Today, Dell updates the spec for the Alienware 13, 15, and 17 with the best chips Intel has to offer.
Available from Thursday, January 5th, you’ll be able to purchase the 13-inch Alienware with either a Core i5-7300HQ or a Core i7-7700HQ. Both are quad-core chips with 6MB of onboard cache, with the lower-numbered one achieving a 3.5GHz Turbo Boost speed and the higher spec peaking at 3.8GHz. Memory options top out at 32GB of RAM, and the best graphics card you can cram into the Alienware 13 is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of its own RAM.
