Alienware has announced that its Aurora R11 gaming PC now ships with Nvidia RTX 30-series graphics, including the mammoth RTX 3090

Although the gaming desktop already offers a ton of configuration options, Alienware today announced that buyers now have the option to add either a Nvidia RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 GPU to their machine, both of which will be "custom-engineered" with advanced cooling and boosted thermal management. 

These new RTX 30-series options are available for both the Intel-based Aurora R11 and the Aurora Ryzen Edition R10, with the latter supporting up to a Ryzen 9 3950X

This extra graphical grunt won’t come cheap, though. Adding an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card to your Aurora R11 will set you back an additional $813.30, while upgrading to an RTX 3090 will set you back an eye-watering $1,597.40. 

On the plus side, both options come with a free copy of Watch Dogs: Legion and a 12-month membership to GeForce Now
