KitGuru gets up close to Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition

Alienware showed its Area-51 Threadripper Edition at E3 and now as SIGGRAPH kicks off KitGuru has had the chance to get some photos showing the innards.

Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition will go on sale in Europe on 22nd August.

The standout feature is the eye-catching Centauri chassis and alongside that we have the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU. Close behind that we have the price which starts at US$2,999 for which you get a mere 8GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive and an 850W PSU.

If you want to buy Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition with a sensible specification you’re easily looking at $4,000. Dell assures us they will update the options to include Radeon RX Vega graphics but in the meantime we shall have to settle for the RX580 shown in the photos.

As a passing comment, we really hope the cabling inside this epic PC will be tidied up in retail examples as it looks rather messy for such an expensive purchase.
