Digital Storm Unveils Hybrid PC-Steam Machine

Computer manufacturer Digital Storm today (Jan. 6) unveiled the Bolt II gaming PC. It features both the Windows operating system and the Linux-based SteamOS. The SteamOS from Valve has been optimized for computer gaming, including an interface intended to be used on televisions in living rooms.

The Bolt II features Digital Storm's advanced heating measures, including a liquid-cooling system, a case designed to stimulate airflow, temperature sensors throughout the machine, a 240mm radiator to cool the processor and the HydroLux control board that allows users to monitor and adjust every aspect of the cooling system.

The company says the Bolt II case was designed to allow easy access to individual components, including removal for any adjustments or for complete replacement. The Bolt II is also designed as a small-form factor system, with the case measuring 4.4 inches wide by 16.4 inches tall and 14.1 inches deep.

The Bolt II will be available in four different configurations, starting at $1,899. It will be released later this month, via the Digital Storm website.

  • Eat your heart out gaming consoles.
  • That box is sexy as hell...
  • 1900 bucks?! Must be created and sold in California where people try to waste money. You can build your own, with 2 780 GTX's and liquid cooled for under 1,000. There is a sucker born every minute and sadly (as Apple has proven) people think more expensive products = better prodcucts....(which is completely wrong btw)
