Dell has recently announced that Alienware will be joining the console wars, as the UFO Concept has been revealed at CES 2020. Featuring the Intel 10th gen CPU, the system resembles a Nintendo Switch but adds tons of possibilities. The concept has a high definition display, thunderbolt connectivity and was demonstrated running Mortal Kombat 11 and Rocket League.
“Concept UFO features an 8-inch screen with 1900×1200 resolution. It also includes detachable controllers, so you can game in a range of modes: as one unit, with controllers attached to the screen; separating the controllers and using the kickstand on a surface to game or stream your favorite show (for example, a table, or a tray on an airplane or train); or connect it to an external display and play using the detached controller, or use a mouse and keyboard as you would any other PC.”
Alienware claimed that, users will be able to play AAA PC titles on-the-go. They also include a statement that will be heard a lot in the following days, the investment of thousands of hours in the design, features and ergonomics of the controller.
“With anything you’re going to hold in your hands while you play, it must feel “right” as soon as you pick it up. Our teams have invested hundreds – if not thousands – of hours on the controller design features and ergonomics. And we’ve spent the last few months testing and enhancing the buttons, the weight, all to strike a perfect balance between performance, ultra-mobility and battery life. Using 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors along with WiFi, Bluetooth, and Thunderbolt for high performance gaming, networking and connectivity, Concept UFO offers uncompromised on-the-go performance.”
Alienware will appeal to gamers that likes Nintendo Switch but are more interested in a more powerful device, also, being a Windows PC, the device also features tons of different possibilities, and a way larger library, from Steam, Epic Games Store to Xbox Game Pass.
