MIAMI – Alienware (www.alienware.com)
has tapped into quad-core technology by making Intel’s Core 2 Extreme QX6700
processor available in its Area-51 7500 and Area-51 ALX desktops. The quad-core
Core 2 Extreme QX6700 easily tackles numerous tasks simultaneously, freeing up
time for Alienware desktop users.
The Core 2 Extreme QX6700 is made up of four separate
processing cores in a single package and provides 8MB of L2 cache. This
dramatically increases the multitasking potential of Alienware users by
significantly improving system responsiveness when performing tasks like
rendering a video, playing a demanding game and running productivity software
at the same time.
Multimedia enthusiasts working with applications that depend
on threaded computing, such as audio/video editing or 3D modeling, will see
improved performance. In addition,
users will benefit from a quieter computing environment thanks to the
processor's new Digital Thermal Sensor, which ensures that system fans spin
only as fast as needed in order to minimize noise.
"When a technology breaks crucial new ground the way
the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 has, customers can't wait to get their hands on it,”
says Mark Vena, VP of marketing for Alienware. "Intel's quad-core
technology benefits a wide array of users by accelerating their productivity
and enhancing their ability to manage digital content, laying the groundwork
for emerging games and applications that take full advantage of the performance
capacity of four processing cores.”
