Introduction


A big thank you to Digital Storm for providing the Lynx system for review.

Digital Storm may not have the market presence of Dell or HP, but having been in business since 2002, they are not a newcomer by any means. From that point onward, they have grown at a breakneck pace, delivering cutting-edge performance and rock-solid support to customers. Along the way, they have grown into a premier boutique PC builder in a highly competitive market that regularly produces some of the fastest gaming computers on the market out of a desire to give customers an experience that is unmatched by the competition.


Today, I take a look at the first Digital Storm gaming PC to cross my desk. Dubbed the "Lynx", I have here their ultimate configuration for review, and it's packed with high-end parts and RGB LEDs. Number crunching is handled by an Intel i7-9700K, while graphically demanding games are eaten alive by the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070. Add in 16 GB of DDR4, a 500 GB M.2 SSD, and 2 TB of regular storage, along with an ultra-clean design, and you end up with quite the system on paper. Before I heap any praise on it, let's take a closer look at the specifications and see what else is on offer.
