Welcome to our first review of a Digital Storm PC. Today in the lab we have the Digital Storm Bolt, a powerful small form-factor desktop designed and built just outside of Silicon Valley, California.

 

Normally when downsizing hardware, one would have to give up performance. With the Bolt, this isn't the case. While limited in expansion options, the Mini-ITX motherboard is fully capable of running a quad-core CPU and powerful video card.

 

Another fear when going to a small form-factor system is that components will be custom and proprietary. If this is the case, upgrading a system can prove difficult in the future. Luckily for us, the Digital Storm Bolt makes use of standard PC hardware.

 

We're also announcing a slight change to our desktop testing methodology. We have added Crysis 3 because there is no other game that can challenge a system as well as it can. Without further ado, let's check out just how well the Bolt performs.
