Alienware today announced its latest products, including a new, lower-cost version of its curved OLED monitor, a keyless keyboard, and a redesigned Aurora R15 desktop. They will all be available in the fall.

Perhaps the biggest reveal is the 34-inch QD-OLED curved monitor. It’s a slightly downgraded – and therefore cheaper – version of the QD-OLED monitor released earlier this year. In practice they are no different, but the new monitor has a slightly lower refresh rate (165 Hz) and supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro over Nvidia’s G-Sync Ultimate. It costs about $1,099 versus the other monitor’s $1,299.

Alienware also offers its first tenkeyless keyboard. According to the company, this keyboard frees up mouse space and comes with Cherry MX switches. It also features per-key RGB lighting and fully programmable keys.

Perhaps the biggest (physically) new device is the upgraded Aurora R15 gaming desktop. It will feature 13th-generation Intel processors and GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs. The full, top spec is pretty beefy and it also has improved cooling technology.
