Alienware M15 Review - How Did They Do This?

  • čas přidán 26. 10. 2018
  • Dave2D review of the Alienware M15, the best gaming laptop from Dell for thin and light performance.
    Alienware M15 -
    The M15 is 38% lighter and 17% thinner than the Alienware 15. Loaded with the GTX 1070 MaxQ and i7-8750H, it still brings excellent performance for modern games.

    What do you think of their first thin and light gaming laptop? Would you get it? The M15 is 38% lighter than the regular Alienware 15 (and has much better thermals than I expected for a thin and light).

    The review was done well, though, the computer, in my opinion, is aesthetically unpleasing. I prefer the larger Alienware laptops, I do not mind lugging around the extra weight. The 15 R4 is a much more attractive unit; the lights, the squareness, and the weight scream refinement. Alienware has confused new with improved in this situation.

    Alienware gives you one the best perfomance for i7 8750h out of the box , some users dont care about the cpu hitting 100c, however if you dont like these thermals you are free to undervolt and decrease these temps significantly.Personally i like the option of getting something more powerfull and having the option of undervolting it myself for my own needs. I dont say that they couldnt do better with the thermals but even with these temps there are solutions to prevent that kind of situations, All in all i believe that thermal issues can be fixed and the fact that it has an aluminium body in such price with that perfomance and weight makes me actually buy that laptop and maybe undervolt it.

      Ah perfect Laptop. The first one i received was totally fucked up as it looked like a refurished. The Second laptop that they sent was a perefct one. It reached 95 deg and after using it like few hours it reached 100 deg because of the laptop table surface temperature. I undervolted using throttlestop upto -0.100v and ideal temps were like 35 to 45 and while playing games it reached 80. Dota 2 - > 65 to 75 . Farcry Primal 75-82. Fortnite 75 - 80. The heat problem is only due to overclocked CPU where other laptops are undervolted. I prefer Alienware though.

      dannyg3677 I have my own desktop at home so for me it was about getting something I could use for my computer science degree, it could last long and was built well, it was $1,187 retail and I think for having the 1060 and a 8750h isn’t great price to performance but I did get the bigger battery and since I got it I had to use the 512 NVME M.2 SSD if I didn’t have a dedicated machine I’d get the 2060 version but all things considered this was a great purchase for me

    • dannyg3677
      dannyg3677 Před 5 měsíci

      @Alex Atwood I see! Well the config I am probably going to get is the i7 with the RTX 2060. Also I am planning to under volt the system so that I get better thermals. I don't mind the 16gb RAM all I am doing is light gaming and CHclip and web browsing. So I don't think I'll need more than that. I just live the design so much. If not I would have gone for the m15 R1 as well. The sale on it is incredible

    • Alex Atwood

      I had the m15 2019 for 2 weeks and sent it back for the 2018 version due to the 2019 running hot also I got the 2018 with a 90WHR battery and it lasted on average around 6 hours which is great also the ram is soldered on in the 2019 version and it does physically look better but on the 2018 is on sale and the way I had configured was 600 bucks off

    My guess for the thermal problems on their bigger laptops is pricing, they spend more money packing it with hardware and when it comes to their cooling and fans, they just slap it in there and call it a day, but with the thin version, they put the basic necessities and had money to spend, so they put it on their cooling technology

      I've heard so many people talk about cooling issues but on my 17 r4 it never gets hot. Must be a luck of the draw type thing.

    I am confused. All other sites say that Alienware's bulkier laptops had no thermal issues but this thinner M15 has thermal throttling, but this video says different story. I am looking to buy one RTX version of M15. Can someone testify the thermal performance of this machine?
