Lightside Edition and DarkSide Edition
WHAT: Alienware has created, for the first time, a Star Wars branded desktop PC based on the AMD Athlon™ 64 FX-55 processor. AMD (NYSE: AMD) and Alienware will give away one Alienware Aurora: Star Wars Edition desktop PC — featuring the AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 processor — at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration III, in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 21-24, 2005. The event is expected to attract more than 30,000 Star Wars fans from around the world.
AMD64 technology was the force behind the upcoming Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Star Wars fans will be able to tap into the power of AMD64 technology with AMD Athlon 64 processors, which will be featured in all of the Alienware gaming systems at the AMD LAN event. AMD Athlon 64 processors provide mind-blowing performance benefits along with Cool’n’Quiet™ technology and Enhanced Virus Protection (EVP), which combined with Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and certain other operating systems* protects the computer’s operating system and applications against certain malicious viruses. Star Wars Celebration III attendees participating in the free AMD LAN gaming arena will be entered in a raffle to win the Alienware Aurora: Star Wars Edition PC. The AMD Athlon 64 processor-based Alienware Aurora: Star Wars Edition PC will be awarded to the winner in one of two Star Wars themes; Darkside or Rebel Alliance, depending on the winner’s preference. The winner will be selected on April 24. Alienware Aurora: Star Wars Edition PCs featuring AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 processors will be available in the U.S. in the near future. Both the Star Wars Celebration III and the AMD sponsored LAN gaming arena will be open to the public. Participants in the LAN gaming arena can demonstrate their capacity of the Star Wars force with Star Wars games Battlefront Republic Commando and Knights of the Old Republic II.
