Digital Storm announces the Bolt gaming PC, claims it as world’s thinnest and most powerful

Oct 23, 2012

Digital Storm, maker of custom-built gaming computers, has just announced the Bolt, which is the company's newest creation and is claimed to be the world's thinnest and most powerful desktop gaming PC on the market currently, thanks to the custom-built computer chassis and top-of-the-line components.

How thin is it exactly, you ask? Surprisingly, it's only 3.6-inches thick, and it stands 14-inches tall. Digital Storm says that they "found no chassis on the market that met their design criteria," so the company ended up designing and building their own case that would fit their criteria to the letter.

The company says that no other thin form factor tower has as much power on the inside as the Bolt does. The computer can fit up to an Intel Core i7 3770K quad-core processor that can be overclocked to 4.6GHz, 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 graphics, 120GB SSD, and a 1TB hard drive with room for up to five drives total.

Of course, that model will cost you a pretty penny: $1,949. However, their base model weighs in at $999 and comes with a Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM, GTX 650 Ti graphics, and a 1TB hard drive. All of their machines come with Windows 7 Home Premium. The Bolt is available now for purchase, so if you've been looking for a powerful rig in a small package, this might be your time to buy.
