|Following last week's additions of the GeForce 9800 GX2 and nForce 790i motherboards, the Alienware Area-51 desktops have now received a new update, with the introduction of Intel's QX9770 processor.
"Alienware is about empowering our customers by providing the highest performing, most versatile computers possible," says Marc Diana, product marketing manager for Alienware. "Incorporating the Intel QX9770 processor into our award-winning Area-51 desktop is just one more example of how Alienware is at the forefront of cutting-edge PC technology."
Now ready to be included in top notch and very expensive Area-51 configurations, the 45nm-built QX9770 is Intel's first desktop CPU with a 1600 MHz FSB and has four cored clocked at 3.2 GHz. The processors also boasts 12 MB of L2 cache and it should be the highest-end release of the Yorkfield family as the upcoming Nehalem quads are set to replace it by the end of the year.
