Dell plans Alienware M11x with Core i7, uses new chips

Alienware M11x and Studio 14 get new Intel chips

Dell staked out its claim in high-speed PCs in the past few days with at least two of its systems getting brand new processors. In an overview of the Alienware M11x, the company's Pearce Clune revealed that the 11-inch gaming ultraportable will replace its Core 2 Duo with Intel's new ULV i3, i5 and i7 processors next month. All three should be significantly faster than the existing options and may help with battery life.

At the same time, Dell's Singapore site briefly showed the Studio 14 carrying the new quad-core i7s teased earlier. While now gone, the 1.73GHz i7 740QM would provide a cheaper quad-core option and the 1.86GHz 840QM would become the fastest non-Extreme quad-core chip. US pricing hasn't been settled, but the 1.73GHz chip could cost slightly less than its predecessor and the 1.86GHz slightly more.

Intel hasn't publicized the new quad Core i7s but could make them known in the next few weeks, such as at Computex.

    Alienware decided that it needed more CPU power and better graphics technology, which is why on Tuesday, the M11x has been updated with an Intel Core i7 processor and a new graphics switching technology from Nvidia, called Optimus.
