Alienware m15 R5 Ryzen Edition
Dell Alienware m15 R5 officially returns with AMD CPUs, nearly 14 years since the Turin 65 ML-44 based Alienware mALX was released.
The m15 R5 features either Ryzen 7 5800H or Ryzen 9 5900HX, there is no 6-core option here. Both processors offer 8 cores but they differ in clock speeds. The unlocked 5900HX offers up to 4.6 GHz with 45+ watts, whereas 5800H is locked to 4.4 GHz at 45 watts.
The m15 R5 is equipped with either GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070, both with TDP up to 115W with 10W of dynamic boost. So these are definitely not Max-Q variants. Accompanying these graphics cards users are three display options: 1080p display at 165Hz, 1080p display at 360 Hz (with G-Sync), and probably the most interesting option is 1440p screen with 240 Hz refresh rate. The 1080p panels offer 300 nits brightness whereas 1440p is 400 nits. The third option is also 100% compatible with the DCI-P3 color gamut, while 1080p are 100% sRGB.
The Alienware m15 R5 Ryzen Edition will cost at least 1795 USD and it will be available starting from April 20 in the USA and China. Other countries such as Germany are to follow on May 4th.

Ryzen to the Challenge: Alienware launches first AMD-based laptop in over a decade
Halo 3. The Orange Box. World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. What do all these things have in common besides being epic timepieces? These gaming relics all made their red-carpet debut in 2007, like Alienware’s last AMD-based laptop, the Aurora mALX. Fast forward 14 years to present day, and game experiences have evolved quite a bit. Powering today’s blockbuster games requires serious performance and very few know what that requires better than our friends at AMD and NVIDIA.
Today, we start a new chapter with AMD announcing not one but two new gaming laptops — introducing the redesigned Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 and Dell G15 Ryzen Edition, both outfitted with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs. And to complement, we’re unveiling a new suite of Dell Gaming monitors to complete your battle stations.
Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5
Unrivaled visuals, high performance, and sleek design: the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 represents the holy trinity of mobile PC gaming.
The new m15 combines cutting-edge technologies and new design features to deliver an uncompromised visual experience. Offering Alienware’s fastest displays on a 15-inch notebook ever, gamers can select up to QHD 240Hz or FHD 360Hz panels to deliver smooth gameplay. And as the first Legend 2.0-based Alienware notebook, gamers will be drawn closer into the gameplay thanks to a new design feature called Dark Core, which darkens the interior shade of the laptop to minimize distractions and keep your head in the game. All this visual goodness is powered by high-performance technologies, including:
- Up to AMD Ryzen 5000 H-Series Mobile Processors and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series Laptop GPUs
- User-upgradeable 3200Mhz DDR4 memory for the first time on an Alienware 15-inch notebook
- First Alienware notebook finished with the new Silky-Smooth High-Endurance paint formula engineered for increased stain-resistance and premium surface feel
Finally, we can’t leave out the “cherry” on top – an optional ultra-low profile mechanical keyboard co-developed with Cherry MX that creates a distinctive typing experience and supports per-key RGB lighting. The Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 is available in the U.S. with select configurations on April 20 starting at $1793.98.
