23 March 2010
Conclusion: Performance Summary: The Dell Alienware Area-51 with its hot off the wafer fab Core i7-980 X six-core processor, put up some of the fastest benchmark scores we've seen to date from any desktop system. From a gaming perspective, its graphics configuration of dual Radeon HD 5970 cards in CrossFireX offers about as much horsepower as you could muster currently in a pair of PCI Express graphics slots.
Pros: Core i7-980X Benchmark Bruiser, Hot-Rod Chassis Design, Great Case Lighting, Wall of Storage Drive Cage, Water-Cooled Goodness, Killer Core i7-980 X Overclocks
Cons: Expensive For Sure, Drive Bay Not Hot-Swap, Expensive Extended Warranty
