Alienware m17 R5 AMD | PC gamer

One thing I love about Alienware is the company’s unrelenting confidence in its new products. Whether that brags that a desktop is a “Benchmark bruiser (opens in new tab)” or the publication of one of the most sophisticated OLED gaming monitors (opens in new tab) to date. So when I’m offered the opportunity to try the new Alienware m17 R5, billed as “the most powerful 17-inch AMD Advantage gaming notebook”, how can I pass up?

And does it live up to the hype? Uh, yes and no.

The Alienware m17 R5 is powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX and Radeon RX 6850M XT combo that looks like a smash hit for Team Red on paper. It’s also the first gaming laptop we’ve tested with an RX 6850M XT, so I was thrilled to see how it stacked up against laptops with an RTX 3070 Ti and even RTX 3080 Ti mobile GPUs.
