One thing I love about Alienware is the company’s relentless trust in its new products. Whether it’s boasting that a desktop is a “Benchmark Bruiser (opens in new tab)“or drop one of the smoothest OLED game screens (opens in new tab) to date. So when I was offered the chance to check out the new Alienware m17 R5, which has been called “the most powerful 17-inch AMD Advantage gaming laptop”, how can I let it go?

And does it live up to the hype? Eh, yes and no.

Alienware m17 R5 drives an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX and Radeon RX 6850M XT combination which on paper seems like a slam dunk for Team Red. It is also the first gaming laptop we have tested with an RX 6850M XT, and so I was surprised to see how it stood up to laptops with an RTX 3070 Ti and even RTX 3080 Ti mobile GPUs.
