The new Bolt gaming desktop from boutique PC manufacturer Digital Storm is throwing around a lot of buzzwords today. We might take issue with their claim of being the world’s ‘most powerful’ gaming PC, but the thinnest gaming desktop? They might just have that one.
Thanks to an all new chassis, the Bolt comes in at only 3.6 inches across, and 14 inches high. Despite the reduction in size and volume, the Digital Storm engineers managed to pack in a slim optical drive as well a complement of front ports, including two USB 3.0.
A lot of clever heat redistribution went into the new PC, and that point becomes evident when you read through the components list. Intel Core i7-3770K overclocked CPUs, up to three hard drives (two RAIDed SSDs and a mechanical hard drive) plenty of RAM and a full-sized video card.
Depending on the configuration, customers can take home anything from an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 TI 2GB to a GTX 680 with 2GB of GDDR5.
To ensure that each system is stable, Digital Storm promises to put every order through a 72-hour stress test before it leaves the factory. The new systems start at $999, and are available at Digital Storm’s website.
