Alienware 7500 Quad-Core

Alienware this morning said it was one of the very first companies to introduce a system using Intel's new, more mainstream quad-core CPU. The Area-51 7500 is the first of the gaming PC builder's models to use the Core 2 Quad, a detuned version of the previously launched quad-core Xeon and Core 2 Extreme. The company says it will use the 2.4GHz Q6600 version of the chip to balance the difference between performance and cost. Other components of the system are similar to its previous update and include the option of as much as 4GB of RAM, dual GeForce 8800 GTX video cards, and a Blu-Ray drive. Alienware has not announced the upgrade price as of this posting but should set it $150-200 lower than the $3,219 price of the system when configured with the Core 2 Extreme four-core processor.
