Dell Alienware Aurora R12 Intel Gaming Desktop (2021)

MSRP 1180 USD

Product Overview

Dell Alienware Aurora R12 is a micro-ATX mid-tower gaming desktop computer powered by 11th-gen Intel Rocket Lake processors up to i9-11900KF and NVIDIA GeForce graphics up to RTX 3090.
With design that largely inherits that of the Aurora R11, the R12 primarily improves with these chip updates. It retains other notable features such as 4x DDR4 memory slots and 4x PCIe expansion slots (2x x8 in x16 physical form and 2x x4). Optical drive is not available.
Available in two colors, the Aurora R12 features programmable two- or four-zone RGB lighting.
Two other notable highlights are the number of graphics card options available, spanning three generations of NVIDIA GPUs, and the computer's Legend industrial design with a unique component layout.
