In the notebook world, we see a lot of change. Ultraportables have become hip, and netbooks changed the category forever. But on the desktop side, change comes a lot slower. The "beige box PC" reigned for what felt like a decade, and for some time, Alienware was just about the only major company doing unique cases. But even now, with loads of custom case makers, the design is generally the same: a rectangle, with a few nooks and crannies to differentiate. But Digital Storm is going for broke with a radical new design, the Enix desktop PC. This machine is slimmer than a full-tower, but just as powerful.... Read more...
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...

Is it too late to consider a new notebook for Christmas? Not if you're asking Digital Storm's opinion! The custom PC maker has just revealed their newest machine, the XM15 laptop. It's a new "hybrid" breed of gaming machine, which also sips power when you aren't taxing the GPU. NVIDIA's Optimus graphics solution is at the helm here, offering better battery life whenever you could use an IGP. There's an NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M (1GB) video card, but the separate integrated Intel graphics chipset can be called on when you aren't in need of serious graphical horsepower. The switching is automatic, and... Read more...

Menacing? Oh yes. Mean? Definitely. Powerful? You bet. Digital Storm is an up and coming pre-fab PC builder, and in order to go toe-to-toe with the big guys at Dell, Alienware and HP, they've got to offer cutting edge hardware at a great price. And offering that in a PC enclosure that looks like this doesn't hurt matters. The company's new SPECIAL|OPS gaming PC family is one of the wildest we've seen, with all sorts of options for all sorts of budgets. The new range of overclocked machines can be ordered with Intel or AMD chips, as Core i5, Core i7 and Phenom II processors are on tap. The company... Read more...
Digital Storm has already struck gold once with their Black|OPS desktop range, and as they say in Hollywood, there's no need to create something brand new when there's something awesome still left to milk. Despite the fact that we just made all of that up, there's no denying that Free Willy 2 is evidence of it being true. Oh, back to the PC. The new Black|OPS Assassin is called the "world's most advanced vertically cooled PC," which is exactly what a system needs if it plans on running at 4.4GHz. Yes, this new machine includes three 180mm fans, a sub-zero cooling system and an overclocked Core... Read more...
Digital Storm is following the crowd, but how could you blame them? With NVIDIA turning the graphics market upside-down by introducing the Fermi-based graphics card lineup (GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480), the company is revealing a new version of the Black|OPS gaming PC with NVIDIA's latest in the rig. The Black|OPS has always been a fantastic gaming machine, but now it's easily the best of the best. Little else has changed in the configurations, with moneyed consumers still able to soup it up with an Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition. The new cards are now available as options in the machines,... Read more...
Digital Storm is completely and fully on the Core i7 bandwagon. Just a day after the custom PC builder announced that Intel's benchmark warrior (that would be the Core i7-980X Extreme Edition) would be present in their consumer desktops, now the company is bringing the same chip to their most powerful workstation.Engineered to suit the needs of creative professionals who need serious horsepower to churn through audio and video editing, the DAVINCI is one of the most wildly powerful workstations on the market today. Digital Storm’s DAVINCI workstations harness the power of Intel’s new i7 980X processor,... Read more...
Digital Storm has been fighting tooth and nail to make a name for themselves in the gaming desktop area, and there's hardly a better way to do that than by putting the world's fastest CPU into one of their desktops. And then overclocking it. The company's massive Black|OPS desktop is now available to order with Intel's Core i7 980X Extreme Edition, but rather than running at the stock 3.3GHz speed, this one can be tuned up to 4.4GHz. There's no question that this 32nm chip will turn out some serious benchmarks, but those extreme results will require extreme cash. The Extreme configuration has a... Read more...
We've personally experienced the potency of Digital Storm gaming rigs, and it looks like the company is now ready to really up the ante when it comes to power and performance. Digital Storm may not as huge a name in the industry as Alienware, but it certainly offers up the best of the best for those who are willing to pay.The new Black|OPS line of high-performance gaming computers are some of the most wicked machines that the company has ever offered, equipped with Core i7 CPUs, ATI's 5970 GPU and optimized for overclocking. In order to keep things cool while the OC takes place, the systems ship... Read more...
When Intel introduced its LGA1166 Lynnfield processors earlier this fall, one of its goals was to introduce Nehalem's advanced technology at lower price points. To that end, Digital Storm has designed a high-end system around the P55 chipset and Core i5 processor. At a price of ~$1900, the customized system isn't what you'd call cheap, but it's still less expensive than some of the Core i7 PCs we've seen recently, several of which landed between $3100-$4000 dollars. At first glance, the 2.67GHz Core i5 might not seem to be capable competition for Core i7 processors running at 3.2GHz and above,... Read more...
