CES 2019: Nvidia announces RTX 2060, available this month for £329

This graphics card can even give users a taste of the new ray tracing future Nvidia is pushing, though, not to the uncompromising level of the company's higher-end cards. Prices will simply start at $349 (about £270, AU$490), leaving third-party partners to create more affordable or expensive cards on their own whim.

When it comes to graphics, base systems are fitted with a Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. The Alienware m17 is 23mm thick and weighs 5.79 pounds, so it's still bulkier than most laptops. It still falters behind its bigger brother, the $499 (about £380, AU$690) Nvidia RTX 2070, but puts AMD's $399 (£379, AU$679) Radeon RX Vega 56 and $279 (£249, AU$425) XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy in their place. As a bonus, gamers can also get either Anthem or Battlefield V with the RTX 2060 and 2070, and both titles with the 2080 Ti.

Both the new m15 and the m17 will be available on January 29, with the m15 starting at $1579.99 and the m17 starting at $1649.99.

Hailing from the land down under, Sam Chandler is relatively new to the industry, getting his start a few years ago as a writer-for-hire.

For the processor, you can now get the new 6-core Intel Core i9 8950HK processor, clocked at up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost.

Pricing and availability details aren't available at this time. At CES, Razer unveiled the new Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model, which is supposed to be the world's smallest 16.6-inch gaming laptop. The graphics company pulled the wraps off an all-new RTX 2060 GPU for the "midrange" desktop platform as well as its new RTX line of mobile GPUs.

The Alienware m15 and m17 are two peas from the same pod, with the former being built around a 15-inch display, while the latter makes use of a 17.3-inch display.

The device packs an interesting hinge mechanism, as you can see in the image above, as well as specs that will let it compete against all the other models.

On the processing front, you can select from 8 generation Core i5, Core i7 or Core i9 processors.
