Thirdly, talking about the graphics card there are two variants here as well. With the first one being the Nvidia’s RTX 2060 and the second one being Nvidia’s now discontinued RTX 2080. Both of which can run any triple-A title at the high setting with ease. Lastly, for storage, you get either 1TB SSHD or 2TB RAID0 SSDs + 1TB SSHD both of which should be sufficient for storing your large games. The only downside of the Alienware is its thermal system.
