Digital Storm Launches 4 Laptops with 800M Series GPUs

On Thursday, Digital Storm revealed four new laptops packed with Nvidia's new GTX 800M series of GPUs. To celebrate the launch, the company has decided to give away a "Krypton" laptop worth $1,478 USD. To enter, contestants must upload a picture of their "broke-down, dilapidated, decrepit" laptop to this address. Digital Storm will choose the best of the worst and announce a winner on May 1, 2014.

As for the new laptops, the company launched the 15.6-inch Javelin and Lance, and the 17.3-inch Krypton and Behemoth. All four arrive in four configurable models: Good, Better, Best and Ultimate. Starting prices begin at $1,196 (Javelin "Good") and extend up to $3,984 (Behemoth "Ultimate").

According to the specs, every model features an Nvidia GTX 800M series GPU. For example, the Javelin $1,196 "Good" model starts with a 15.6-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, an Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU, Nvidia's GTX 860M (2 GB), 8 GB of 1600 MHz memory, a 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a DVD drive and Wireless N. The $1,630 "Ultimate" model builds on that setup but swaps out the CPU for a Core i7-4810MQ, 16 GB of 1600 MHz memory, an additional 256 GB SSD, a Blu-ray player and Wireless AC connectivity.

Feeling frisky? The company's Behemoth "Good" configuration starts at $2,289 and features a 17.3-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M GPU (8 GB). Also included is the Intel Core i7-4810MQ CPU, 16 GB of 1600 MHz memory, a 128 GB SSD, a 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a DVD drive and wireless N connectivity. The $3,984 "Ultimate" version packs an Intel Core i7-4930MX CPU, a larger 256 GB SSD and Wireless AC connectivity.

"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's Director of Product Development.  "The cards' ability to deliver gaming performance comparable to a desktop system allow our notebooks to dominate anywhere."

    Bragging about 1080p res on a laptop is no longer hip. About 3 - 4 years ago when it was still new and uncommon yeh when I had a Asus G73. But halfway into 2014 with the hardware out now its common place. Also 256Gb SSD should be the standard OS hard drive now too.

    Lets see what maxwell can do ! I bet you guys are at least semi annoyed to see these new GPUs out onto the market already , considering you guys just did a review of the mobile 780m down to the 760m. I hope we see a review soon.
