Digital Storm Announces The Aura 34” All-in-One Featuring A 10-Core i7-6950X and GTX 1080 GPUby Brett Howse on May 31, 2016 6:00 AM EST

Without missing a beat with the launch of the latest Broadwell-E processors from Intel, and the highest performing graphics card ever with the NVIDIA GTX 1080, Digital Storm has shoehorned both into their 34-inch all-in-one display.
There were several manufacturers showing off the 34-inch all-in-one gaming system at CES, and the curved display makes for a commanding view. The widescreen display features a 3440x1440 21:9 panel with a slight radius to it. As mentioned, this is a common design from several manufacturers, with Digital Storm being the first to market (or at least the first to my inbox) with the latest and greatest Broadwell-E and GTX 1080 cards.
If you don’t want to go quite that crazy, Digital Storm offers a lot of customization on the device with processors from the Core i5-6500 through Core i7-6700K Skylake parts, or if you need more cores, substitute in some E Series for up to 10 cores plus HyperThreading. On the graphics side, you can opt to just use integrated graphics, or anything from a GTX 950 to the GTX 1080. The all-in-one can be configured with up to 32 GB of DDR4, and there are plenty of storage options including spinning disk and M.2 PCI-E storage.
Since the parts are standard, the end device is able to be upgraded down the line by the owner, which isn’t always the case in all-in-one systems.
Cooling is always going to be an issue with you pack this much power into a small space, so Aura features liquid cooling for the CPU, and the graphics card blower exhausts hot air out of the display bezel, which should be ideal for expelling the waste heat from the GPU.
The Aura is available now starting at $1999.

WithoutWeakness - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkTheir site has now been updated to list the 6950X. The AIO cooler they have pictured on their site looks like an older style Corsair H80 with corrugated tubing. That means a 38mm radiator plus two 25mm fans. I'm curious to see how where they mount it back there.
K_Space - Thursday, June 2, 2016 - linkHuh? Intruiging, how will the fans act in push pull configuration. It'll probably be a single fan with vents in the back cover for the fan to act as intake. This won't be quiet!
fallaha56 - Thursday, June 2, 2016 - linktry reading what you jst wrote lol -overclocking an all-in-one?
folk will buy this for status, style and upgradeability
DanNeely - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - link"the graphics card blower exhausts hot air out the top of the display, which should be ideal for expelling the waste heat."
Are you sure about that?
The card orientation shown would have the card exhausting from the bottom of the display unless they're Rube Goldberging some sort of ductwork to reverse the airflow for some reason instead of just mounting the card itself the other way around.
hans_ober - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkIMO it would exhaust down because of the display cables, unless there's an internal extension.
ImSpartacus - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkYeah, you want any display outputs to aim downwards.
Brett Howse - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkHmm it does blow it out the bottom - the design I saw at CES had it blowing out the top so not sure if this is a rendering issue or what. Looking at other devices they all show it blowing out the bottom as well though.
Brett Howse - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkI looked back through my notes and I was incorrect - the CES versions did exhaust out the bottom. Text is corrected thanks for the feedback!
Valantar - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkConsidering that the GPU is oriented downwards, I'd be very surprised if it vented its heat upwards. Unless, of course, the heat has to move down, hit the bottom of the chassis, and then flow upwards past every single other component in the PC. Doesn't sound like a good solution. Are you sure there isn't a vent directly below the GPU?
FameMoon - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - linkNice try Digital Storm..Overwatch do not support widescreen
