Alienware X51 is Compact yet Powerful Gaming Desktop

The U.S based technology outfit Alienware has finally stepped into the mini PC market this week, with the launch of a brand new scaled-down, but powerful gaming PC.

The new offering, which comes in more or less the same size as an Xbox, has been named Alienware X51. The company brags that the new offering brings a whole bunch of powerful and sophisticated components into a compact chassis, PCWorld reports.

Alienware was acquired by Dell way back in 2006 and now it functions as a subsidiary of the Texas-based multinational technology giant. Alienware specialises in squeezing in third party components to its own customised chassis. The products are primarily aimed at the hardcore PC gamers, although they also support other graphically intense tasks such as video editing and animation.

The X51 happens to be smallest ever desktop PC dished out by the company to date. It is powered by an Intel Core i3,i5 or i7 processor, and features a dedicated GDDR 5 memory and Nvidia GeForce GTX 545 or GTX 555 graphics card.

It is also equipped with a pair of USB 3.0 interfaces, a 1 TB hard drive (7200 revolutions per minute), HDMI 1.4 connectivity as well as Wi-Fi for interweb access.
