A leading producer of high-end computers for gamers and professionals – Alienware – revealed some additional details about its new initiative to install two graphics cards into one PC for hardcore gamers. It seems that the new ALX computers will greatly use Intel's server technologies to make games run faster.
Alienware ALX – New Ultimate Performers
Last week it was announced that Alienware will come up with ALX computers for gamers that will eventually handle two high-end PCI Express graphics cards for extreme performance in conventional 3D games. The most advanced versions of ALX PCs that are slated for release in Q4 2004 will come with Intel Tumwater-based X2 mainboard featuring 2 PCI Express x16 slots and will allow installation of two identical graphics cards into one PC. However, ALX brand-name does not necessarily mean that the PC comes with two graphics cards. The ALX systems form luxurious ultra high-performance PC lineup that will be available starting from June 2004.
