Dell subsidiary Alienware has announced that customers will soon be able to add Intel's new Broadwell-E processors with six, eight, or ten cores to their configurations of the company's Area 51 gaming desktop PC. Specifically, you'll be able to add the Core i7-6800K, 6850K, 6900K, and 6950K processors to your setup, with shipping of those configurations beginning June 14.

Don't expect the addition to be cheap. The six-core i7-6800 and 6850 retail independently for $434 and $617, respectively. The eight-core 6900K comes in at $1089, while the ten-core 6950K costs $1723. The processor line was announced during this week's Computex 2016 show.
