The R16 is the newest Alienware Aurora gaming desktop for 2023. The R16 chassis is 40% smaller in volume compared to previous iterations. It features a simple yet proven airflow design; air is drawn in through the side intake vents over the GPU area as well as a 120mm rear fan drawing air in and a generously sized 240mm all-in-one liquid cooler exhausts air out through the top. A side benefit is that the GPU is supplied with fresh air from the outside instead of recirculating hot internal air.

The Alienware Aurora R16 is equipped with an Intel Core i7-14700F CPU, GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 8GB GPU, 16GB of DDR5-5600MHz RAM, and a 1TB NVMe SSD. The 14th generation Intel Core i7-14700F Raptor Lake Refresh CPU boasts a max clock of 5.4GHz with 20 cores, 28 threads, and a 33MB cache. This is an excellent general purpose chip. In fact for gaming, it’s pretty much on par with a Core i9 CPU. The “F” in 14700F simply means that the chip doesn’t have onboard graphics (iGPU).

The RTX 4060 Ti 8GB video card is the perfect GPU for 1080p gaming, although it’s also capable of handling 1440p gaming. It’s about 5%-10% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti at 1080p and supports the newer DLSS 3.0 and 3.5 technology for even better performance in games that support it. It’s about 20%-25% faster than the RTX 4060 in 1080p gaming.
