Fremont, Calif. – Build-to-order high-performance PC resource Digital Storm unveiled Thursday four gaming notebooks targeting mobile gamers.
The new models include the 15.6-inch Javelin (retail pricing starting at $1,196) and Lance and the 17.3-inch Krypton and Behemoth.
All four include Nvidia GTX 800M-series graphics cards offering improved performance and advanced technology like Battery Boost, to maximize battery life during gaming, and ShadowPlay for recording gameplay streams, the company said.
“We’ve wanted to refresh our notebook line for a while and the Nvidia GTX 800M-series launch provided the perfect timing,” said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm product development director. “The cards’ ability to deliver gaming performance comparable to a desktop system allow our notebooks to dominate anywhere.”
The custom-built Javelin notebook delivers FullHD 1080p multimedia performance.
The Lance includes a high-performance notebook cooling system that compartmentalizes critical hardware to keep temperatures down while handling heavy workloads.
The notebook also comes equipped with Sound Blaster’s X-Fi MB3 platform and two precision balanced Onkyo speakers with a built-in subwoofer.
The 17.3 inch Krypton, was designed to be upgrade-friendly, by providing room for up to three storage drives and fully upgradable components (graphics card, processor and memory).
The 17.3-inch Behemoth features dual SLI GTX 880M graphics cards, and Digital Storm’s multizone customizable LED-backlit keyboard.
Digital Storm said it is giving away a Krypton model (a $1,478 value), to a gamer in need to celebrate the launch of the four notebooks.
