The lounge, appropriately named the Alienware Arena, will sport more than 150 Aurora R9 gaming PCs with Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2070 Super GPUs. Fortress Melbourne will also benefit from a mixture of 27″ and 34″ Alienware monitors, RGB keyboards, gaming mice and headsets.
On the infrastructure side, Alienware parent company Dell will also be providing the Esports centre with Dell EMC PowerEdge R640 servers with Intel Xeon scalable processor, Dell EMC SC Series storage and Dell EMC N-Series and S-Series networking.
“We want Fortress Melbourne to become the go-to venue for all Australian gamers, which is why we’re so excited to be partnering with Dell Technologies,” said Jon Satterley, CEO at Fortress Australia.
“By having our venue equipped with Alienware’s powerful gaming PCs and peripherals, as well as infrastructure from Dell Technologies, gamers of all skill levels will be able to experience the best gaming equipment in the world.”
Fortress Melbourne is set to open next month, March 2020.
