Alienware announced today that it has updated its Area-51 ALX desktop and is re-launching the line. The new ALX desktop is now available with quad graphics and a CPU overclocked to 4GHz. The Intel QX9770 processor is normally clocked at 3.2GHz.

According to Alienware 4GHz is the maximum stable frequency for the processor and the CPU is liquid cooled by the ALX high-performance liquid cooling. Graphics options for the machine include NVIDIA quad SLI with a pair of 9800 GX2 video cards or ATI CrossFireX with Radeon HD 3870 X2 cards. The system has 4GB of Corsair Dominator DDR3 running at 1600MHz.

"The performance packed into the Area-51 ALX desktop is flat-out unheard-of," says Marc Diana, Product Marketing Manager for Alienware. "Alienware has always been committed to building only the fastest, most powerful systems available, and that's exactly what we've done with the new ALX."
