Alienware M17x and M15x get Core i7 update; OptX AW2310 LCD adds NVIDIA 3D Vision support

Jan 7, 2010

The Alienware M11x ultraportable wasn't the only gaming hardware Dell took on stage with them at CES 2010 this morning; the company had two more, larger Alienware notebooks that use Intel's latest Core i7 mobile processors, the Alienware M17x and M15x, together with a new 3D-capable monitor, the 23-inch Alienware OptX AW2310.

The Alienware M17x and M15x have 17-inch and 15-inch displays, respectively, and processors from Intel's new Core i7 range.  The larger machine can be outfitted with twin graphics cards, too, and prices start from $1,799 for the M17x and $1,399 for the M15x.

As for the OptX AW2310, that's a 23-inch Full HD widescreen LCD that supports NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology.  When used with the graphics company's optional 3D glasses, it supports stereoscopic gaming, 80,000:1 dynamic contrast and inputs via one DVI or two HDMI ports.  The monitor will be $499, though the NVIDIA 3D Vision kit is sold separately.
