The Alienware Transmission

On Thursday, July 14th at 1pm ET (5pm GMT) join Jon and Anna from the Alienware Community Team for the very first episode of the Alienware Transmission on Twitch! This is a new regular show where we discuss all the latest Alienware news, and answer the community's burning questions.

For our inaugural show, we will be joined by Travis North - Sr. Distinguished Engineer at Alienware/Dell and Mark Gallina - System Thermal & Mechanical Architect at Intel, to talk about Alienware thermal design and how we consider thermals when we design our systems for the best gaming experience. Ever wanted to understand more about what has changed in CPU tech in the past decade? Or even what TJ control means? Make sure you tune in!

About our guests:

Travis North


Travis is a Texas Registered Professional Engineer, and a Sr. Distinguished Engineer within Dell’s Technical Leadership Community. His responsibilities include strategy, research, product development, and performance optimization with a focus in high impact technologies for mobile and fixed compute products. He leads a talented technical team of engineers, technologists, and key partners focused on pushing the boundaries of cooling, power, acoustics, and performance technology. Travis graduated from the University of Missouri Columbia with a Master of Science in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with a focus in heat transfer.



Mark GallinaMark Gallina holds a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University (2002) and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Idaho (1999). He joined Intel in 2002 with a focus on fluid dynamics and heat transfer as applied to system thermal designs. Over the course of Mark's career he has developed new thermal solutions for all Client system form factors ranging from passively cooled phones and tablets up to liquid cooled desktops. Mark's work has resulted in numerous shipping products and 9 granted US patents. He is currently the senior system thermal and mechanical technologist in Intel's Client Computing Group. His current focus area is on detailed CPU design and the transient temperature response of the CPU during high voltage and frequency operation.
