Security's become a sensitive subject ever since former NSA contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the U.S. government's spying shenanigans, and if you don't fancy wearing a tinfoil hat, you might be interested in Patriot Memory's latest storage device. To begin with, Patriot's new Supersonic Bolt XT flash drive family boasts built-in FIPS 197 compliant hardware-based 256-bit AES data encryption.
The Titan's reduced length makes it an ideal fit for small form factor (SFF) gaming rigs.
Nvidia today unleashed its GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, which is supposed to offer nearly the same performance as its dual-GPU GTX 690 (check out our Titan preview). Equally remarkable is that Nvidia was able to shorten the length of the card by an inch, reduce noise output, and keep temperatures in check. Put it all together and you have a potent card destined for SFF systems, a point that wasn't lost on Digital Storm.
The world's thinnest gaming desktop just received a few upgrades.
Digital Storm was as proud as a peacock when it unveiled its Bolt desktop back in October of this year, claiming it had designed the world's thinnest gaming PC. Now that it's been on the market for a couple of months, the boutique system builder has had a chance to evaluate customer feedback, and based on the responses it's received, the company decided to upgrade its Bolt line to run faster and quieter without jacking up the price.
Boutique system builder Digital Storm today unveiled Bolt, a small form factor (SFF) PC billed as the slimmest custom designed gaming computer ever built. Bolt is the latest attempt to port PC gaming to the living room with smaller size systems that have a comparable footprint to that of an Xbox 360 console, which pair nicely with Steam's new Big Picture Mode. The Bolt measures just 3.6 inches wide, 13.3 inches high, and 13.4 inches deep. That's just slightly more portly than the Xbox 360 Slim, which measures 3 inches (W) by 10.6 inches (H) by 10.4 inches (D).
