Alienware’s upcoming Area 51 desktops will feature the flagship 16-core, 32-thread processors combined with quad-channel memory, and the best graphics cards out there. This exclusivity deal does not however affect DIY customers, so you’ll still be able to buy PIB (processor in box) versions of 16-core, 32-thread ThreadRipper chips from your local PC shop or from online retailers.

Expect Alienware to make a big deal out of the new Area 51 because of this deal though.
