    Posted: 31 May 2016 at 10:29am
We're excited to announce the Digital Storm Aura, a powerful 34" curved all-in-one gaming PC. http://www.digitalstorm.com/aura.asp

Aura spawns a new class of high-performance PCs by replacing the traditional bulky tower for an elegant form factor that saves valuable desk space and eliminates clutter. Experience an immersive gaming experience in a slim AIO form factor.



Thanks to an innovative internal design, the graphics card, memory, storage, processor, and even motherboard are all based on standard off-the-shelf components that can be replaced or upgraded by users. Aura is not only a great day one purchase but also a system that users will enjoy for years, even through multiple upgrade cycles.

AIO's have certainly come a loooong way.  Awesome    Very nice. 

For those with an issue on space or just sick and tired of towers and where to put them, for a premium, this is a great choice.  Strong

Nice addition.  Big%20Smile

Alex... Couple of questions that might come up.    I'm assuming a 450watt psu , a guess, and will there be options like gold vs bronze, etc.   Also, build times.

Thanks.

450W Gold, it can run GTX 1080 with headroom. It can even run a GTX TITAN X. It's a high amperage unit on the 12v rails.

Build times are 10-15 business days, it's on the configurator, you can pre-order now with a ship date of end of June.

Congratulations Alex and Digital Storm. Looks like a good move. We will need to know the monitor specs and probably the manufacture. I don't know where you are going to stick a radiator but you must have it figured out.

Man this is a game changer for me

Ive been wanting to move up to 1440p gaming, need a montor for it as well and im in a small room

This might be what i end up getting once i can save up the $ (poor college kid)

As far as upgrading goes, is this something that if we need work done or want to upgrade, we could send to you?

Also i take it that it has USB ports to i could hook up an external HD?

May have to get one of these for my parents for christmas too, my mom has an all in one but its an I3 and slow as hell. She would love something like this, minus the GPU since she doesnt play games.

Love this. I just ordered my new PC a few days ago, but if I weren't dead set on 1080 SLI, I would've strongly considered the Aura. So cool.

Nicely done, DS, nicely done.


Just poked around the configurator... Are you going to offer the Aura with GTX 1070, too?

Does it do G-sync?

Does it have audio outputs, if so what kind?  Can the internal speakers be muted?

Until the specs are released, or Alex chimes in, I doubt it's g-sync and the audio outputs would be motherboard dependant.   Pick the mobo, Google it and see what the audio is.    The z170n gaming 5 for example is very good. Also has wifi on the board.

This monitor does not have built-in GSYNC.

For audio output, it is dependent on what motherboard you choose. Most midrange to high-end boards come with optical out. The internal speakers can be muted via Windows sound control.

Hi Nav... What's the keyboard shown in the promo pic ? I could figure it out but easier if someone's knows. Save me some hunting.

We just sold our initial batch of Aura units. The pre-order ship date is now End of July. If you're on the fence of buying one, I suggest placing an order soon before you end up waiting until August.

It's longer, but not as tall. It's due to the sheer size of the display.

On the Configurator there are various keyboards to choose from. Does it come with the one pictured (Corsair K95) or can we choose? Same with the mouse?

Pretty sure it's the AIO only, no keyboard/ mouse included.   That would certainly be icing on the cake.

From the Aura Configurator:

Corsair Vengeance K95 RGB (Fully Mechanical Gaming Keyboard) (Black Brushed Aluminum Finish)
[+$189]

So, the one pictured is only $189.

I think bprat22 is correct. The Corsair Vengeance K95 RGB is a $198 add on. None of the builds offer a keyboard in the configurator base price for the unit.

I also think the new keyboard is called the Corsair K95 RGB and Corsair has dropped the Vengeance name. I looked on the Corsair site and couldn't find a Vengeance K95 RGB listed. It was listed as the K95 RGB.

The listed Vengeance keyboard sold by DS has the Cherry Red keys. This may be one of those things that is better bought from Newegg if you want other than Cherry Red keys.

I was confused because none of the builds' images in the configurator's opening page are shown as a unit with peripherals like the Aura is. Just kind of hoping. Don't know anything about AIOs..
