Digital Storm Bolt II Steam Machine packed with customizations

Digital Storm Bolt II is a Steam OS-powered device in a small form factor, packed with a custom design to enhance cooling ability

| Computer Systems News | Posted: Jan 7, 2014 1:03 pm

Boutique PC maker Digital Storm launched a small form factor hybrid PC that will dual boot Microsoft Windows and Valve's Steam OS, in a liquid cooled SFF cooling system. The GPU, storage drives, optical drive, and cooling system can be easily removed and upgraded, and provides optimal cooling in a small space.

 

The Digital Storm Bolt will be available later in January with a starting MSRP of $1,899 - not a surprising high price point, as Digital Storm makes high-quality products for a very niche market.

"We are not looking to compete with console pricing," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm Director of Product Development, in a press statement. "We're taking aim at the high-end of the market, targeting consumers that demand the best possible gaming experience and who are looking for a PC capable of playing any title on their new 4K display."

 

Meanwhile, Steam OS is helping bring PC use to an entirely new level, as the price of computer hardware remains friendly for consumers. CES 2014 will feature a slew of different Steam OS-powered devices, with a dozen companies planning to implement the custom platform.
