Alienware Haswell Gaming Laptops Have Landed - Will Gamers Jump?

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) June 12, 2013 New Alienware gaming laptops empowered with Intel's latest 4th Generation "Haswell" Processors have just been featured on the site, which runs an informative online laptop guide. This guide keeps visitors and subscribers informed on all the latest developments in laptop and computer technology - especially when it comes to purchasing a new machine. It also presents a handy money saving Alienware Discounts and Coupons Page for its patrons.

According to Intel, these 4th Generation Processors (codename Haswell) are 15% faster and will supply 50% longer battery life than their Ivy Bridge predecessors. The new chips will even last three times longer in standby mode. These improvements are impressive but will it be enough to entice more gamers to purchase these new "Haswell" laptops and computers, especially when one considers these new chips are significantly higher in price than 3rd Generation (Ivy Bridge) Core chips.

Alienware is probably betting gamers will take the plunge and is offering up many of its popular models with the new processors and new designs. These new Haswell laptops include the M14x starting at $1,199, the M17x starting at $1,499 and the M18x starting at $2,099. Gamers know if they want the highest specs they will have to pay more for fully loaded systems.

While the low battery consumption is very attractive, one of Haswell's main selling points - the integrated Iris GPU (graphical processing unit) - will not be powerful enough for hardcore gaming so a dedicated graphics card will still be needed. However, for ordinary laptop and tablet usage, these new low-power chips could be perfect. In addition, it is also believed the extra graphics processing power of Iris could help bring ultra-high resolution displays, such as 4K and Retina, into the mainstream.

Alienware is also incorporating the new Haswell chips into its popular desktop PCs such as the NEW Alienware X51 compact gaming desktop with 4th Generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. Gamers will have to decide if Haswell is worth an upgrade or not.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
