Summary

But when Alienware offered to let me review the new Aurora R8 with an Intel 9th gen processor and Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics, I quickly became one.Normally I’d suggest saving yourself a grand by building your own system – but that’s not for everyone. But it’s tax season in the US, and that means some of us have a bit of extra cake to spend.If you’re a serious gamer geek looking for an upgrade, but you’re not interested in building out a new system, keep reading.The Aurora R8 – in the configuration I tested – is a monster. And it’s there the R8 shines above all other systems I’ve used.The Alienware Aurora R8 is a pretty good solution for just about any gamer, but it might not be the best solution for every gamer in the configuration I reviewed. There’s a lot more that goes into it (does the RTX series of graphics cards actually help when it comes to games that aren’t optimized to take advantage of its real-time ray-tracing abilities?), but my experience with it tells me that if you’re not using it for 4K, it’s probably more economical to get one with a GTX 1080 inside for a few quid less.To that end, after playing GTA V with the settings maxed out and getting more than 30FPS in glorious 4K (about 95-ish in 1080), I can say I’m completely hooked.
