One of the biggest stories at CES
2011 was Intel's Sandy Bridge. The
second generation of Core processors is a huge deal, and the performance
gains are definitely real. PC makers have been hurrying to offer new,
refreshed systems with these cutting-edge chips in them, and Digital
Storm is no difference. They have just announced that Sandy Bridge chips
will now be available in their desktops and laptops.
Turbo Boost 2.0 will be found across the line, with unlocked multipliers
making it easier to overclock. All of the machines are available to
order now, with pricing varying by machine. But if you were looking to
spend a little holiday cash on a new rig, be glad you waited!
Digital Storm’s New Desktops & Laptops Feature World’s Most Intelligent Chipset
New systems to feature Intel’s 6-Series chipset for intelligent overclocking, energy efficiency, improved price vs. performance ratio and superior computing power
Fremont, Calif. - (January 5, 2011) – Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly announces the addition of the Intel® P67 chipset (formerly Sandy Bridge) into its legendary line of award-winning PCs and laptops.
Sandy Bridge incorporates Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0 technology so that depending on how many CPU cores are being used at a given moment, Turbo Boost 2.0 can temporarily disable unused cores and aggressively overclock the active cores. This results in increased computing performance bursts when the user needs it, all while staying within the processors thermal design. For unlocked 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors, unlocked multipliers mean greater and more stable overclocks, without having to pay upwards of $1,000 for an Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition processor.
In addition to Sandy Bridge’s new Turbo Boost 2.0 technology Intel® has built in GPU and video transcoding engines on-die which share L3 cache reducing distance & improving speed. SLI scaling for NVIDIA’s dual GTX 580s also receives nearly twice the performance boost.
“The performance gained by Sandy Bridge, especially with respect to price, is unlike any new hardware innovation we’ve seen,” remarked Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “We’re now able to offer laptops and PCs with unprecedented power for less money than we ever have before.”
Digital Storm’s Intel® P67 chipset-based optimized desktops and laptops will be available for purchase at www.DigitalStormOnline.com on January 9, 2010.
