Digital Storm wants laptop gamers to stop making compromises when it comes to playing high-end PC titles.

The manufacturer is refreshing its gaming laptops with four new notebook computers that take advantage of Nvidia’s latest graphics chips. The machines promise a combination of high-end gaming, good battery life, and thin designs.

The manufacturer aims to fill the needs of any mobile PC gamer, and these compete with machines such as Razer’s headline-grabbing ultrathin Razer Blade gaming laptop. Such machines seek to transform laptop gaming so that players no longer must give up power and graphics when going mobile.

The new laptops include the 15.6-inch Javelin and Lance models as well as the 17.3-inch Krypton and Behemoth machines. All feature the new Nvidia GTX 800M series of graphics cards.

The machines have features like Battery Boost, which maximizes battery life during gaming, and ShadowPlay, which can record gameplay streams.

“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, in a statement. “The cards’ ability to deliver gaming performance comparable to a desktop system allow our notebooks to dominate anywhere.”

Prices start at $1,200 for the Javelin. The Lance uses a cooling system that compartmentalizes critical hardware.
