Alienware has shown new gaming peripherals

On a Twitch broadcast today, Alienware introduced a bevy of redesigned PC gaming accessories. It also unveiled price and availability dates for its newest CES laptops.

To begin, you may connect to the mechanical Alienware Tri-Mode Wireless Gaming Keyboard in three ways: via a 2.4GHz wireless USB-C dongle (with a dongle extender), Bluetooth 5.1, or a detachable USB-A to USB-C paracord connection.

Cherry MX Red switches (with a 100 million actuation lifetime), a programmable rocker switch and dial, anti-ghosting, and N-key rollover are used on the keyboard. The keyboard costs $290 and will be available in the United States and China on April 14th, as well as the rest of the world on May 19th.

The wired Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard is a mechanical type that is thinner and more compact. Cherry MX Red switches, double-shot PBT keycaps, anti-ghosting, and N-key rollover are also included. The underside of the keyboard includes integrated cable routing, allowing you to place it to the left, right, or centre, depending on your arrangement (and the USB cable is detachable). It enables 16.8 million colour RGB illumination per key. It is now available for $160.

Alienware also unveiled the Dual-Mode Wireless Gaming Headset, which connects to your PC through a USB-C dongle or 3.5mm audio wire included. It sports a 45mm wide headband with a sliding adjustment and fabric-covered memory foam ear cups. According to Alienware, the inside is spacious, with “comfortable touch points with your head.” It has a retractable boom mic and can block out background noise for your audience while you’re speaking (this is not the same as active noise cancellation, which it lacks). Moreover, the headset has 40mm drivers and supports Dolby Atmos. Lastly, the manufacturer claims that the battery may last up to 30 hours. The headset is now available for $160.

The Alienware Wired Gaming Headset was also unveiled by the firm. Although you must connect it by USB or a 3.5mm cable, it otherwise offers nearly identical features to the wireless variant. It also boasts Dolby Atmos compatibility and RGB lighting; it has a 45mm sliding headband, fabric-covered memory foam ear cups, and a retractable boom mic with AI-powered speech isolation. The $100 headset will be available on April 14th in North America and China, and on May 19th in the rest of the globe.



The Alienware Wireless Gaming Mouse is the final piece of new gear to be introduced. It sports a right-handed sculpted shape and a special thumb channel “to aid give comfortable control throughout lengthy gaming sessions.” It includes separate L and R keyplates as well as optical switches. According to Alienware, the mouse’s sensor can monitor up to 26,000 dots per inch while recording fast motions at 650 inches per second and 50G maximum acceleration. It also has tactile grip zones. Alienware offers up to 140 hours of battery life, and the firm claims that five minutes of charging (when the battery is low) would result in 10 hours of uptime. The mouse (which was previously available in China last week) is available in North America today and abroad on March 31st for $100.

In addition, the business revealed updated pricing and availability dates for goods introduced at CES. On March 7th, the Alienware m16 and m18 laptops will be available in all Intel and Nvidia configurations. The m16 costs $1,899, while the m18 costs $2,099. Meanwhile, the Dell G15 ($899 and up) and G16 ($1,499 and up) will be available in Intel / Nvidia versions on March 21st. (AMD choices for all of those models will be available in Q2, with pricing information to follow.) Lastly, the Alienware x15 R2 will go on sale in early April for $1,799 USD.
