ALIENWARE 17 R5 REVIEW

Hey alright, finally got to do this video about my new toy 🙂

I’ve been testing this laptop for a while, wanted to give a really detailed review.

We ran some tests that with VRay 3.6 and VRay NEXT – which you can find in our news section.

And I can tell you for sure that the difference is huge, the workflow is so much faster with VRay NEXT and Alienware 17 R5.

Highlights

  1. The laptop starts up and loads windows in seconds, very fast and responsive on commands.
  2. Great on GPU and CPU rendering.
  3. Can handle heavy exterior scenes with tons of vegetation (more videos to come on that subject).
  4. VR ready – that means optimized for that purpose with the usage of Nvidia GTX 1080.
  5. Build in Alienware system – Security and Maintenance performance
  6. Long living battery
  7. Futuristic design

Downsides

  1. Only 2 USB ports
  2. Needs special backpack
  3. A bit heavy for carrying far distance.

In general I’m very pleased with performance of this laptop, and I would recommend it for Arch.Viz. work.

If you enjoyed this presentation please share it with your VRay friends 🙂
