    The 3080 in the X17 is maxed out vs. Nvidia's guidelines.

    Upcoming Dell Alienware x15 laptop is so thin, it doesn't even have any side ports notebookcheck.net

    "Ultrathin gaming" probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think "Alienware". Dell is looking to change all that this year by launching the thinnest gaming laptop the company has ever made.

    Thin chassis designs will always entail compromises. In this case, the GPU in the Alienware x15 will run at a lower TGP than last year's Alienware m15 R4 (110 W vs. 140 W). Yeah, design before/over functionality!

    But notebookcheck forgot that the lightly thicker x17 also offer no side ports.

    The ultrathin 17.3-inch Alienware x17 integrates vapor chamber cooling, Dell's in-house liquid metal formula, and four individual fans for a starting price of $2099 USD when it launches on June 15. The system ushers in a new era of Alienware where thin and light may soon take priority over the traditionally thick and bulky Alienware designs.

    OK, so X actually means eXtra thin, no RAM slots in the x15, no HDMI port, no AGA based on absolutely idiotic reasons. Race to the abysmal thin and light bottom continues. FUA.

    I was initially wondering why they announced and launched the m15 R6 since it would be redundant to the x15, but since the two laptops are so different (and who knows, maybe the m15 R6 with more power-capable GPUs could be more powerful), I can now understand why the m15 R6 exists.

    Here is the x15 https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/cty/pdp/spd/alienware-x15-r1-laptop/wnx15r1esos

    More ports mean more fun: Let the lightning-fast games begin with two Type-C ports for up to 40Gbps data transfer connections. These ports can also serve as an additional display output for external monitors. Plus, with a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A with PowerShare up to 10Gbps connection speeds you’ll have all the quality connection options you could ever need.

    More ports? Do the enginereers of the model and the sales team work for same company?:D
    The price point. Double up with the cheaper SKUs help boost sales.

    so it needs and adapter to get 2 tb ports? because i only saw 1 on the back. does this adapter come with it or a separate purchase? if its separate they are askoles. Today they only have the maxed out x17 which is a whopping 4k price (after taxes and shipping). Memory is NOT SOLDERED as per dell tech and upgradeable to 64gb tops though i think it can 128gb @3200mhz not 3466 64gb as listed. They also downgraded the 3080 to 8gb from 16gb which to me make ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE!!! since they are making the x17 a 4k 120hz display only (For Now) which will already cripple the system and gaming at this configuration even they offered it at 200w its not enough. also the 2tb nvme offered with the system is extremely over valued at 420 bucks! (this is with a dell membership account that gets 2% off regular price) which is obscene and absolutely egregious. overall its just bad bad bad......

    Dell site show the 3080 at 8gb, but the spec sheet shows the 3080 at 16gb, that's quite the discrepancy . . .

    Depends. But it seems they will send with a cheap Usb-C to ethernet dongle. Not sure if it will have a AW sticker or Dell branding.
    Alread posted the specs. They offer 3080 with both 8GB and 16GB vram. Only 8GB for the x15
