Description

Where most powerful computers look like they stepped off the set of Terminator, the Volta V offers a refreshing new take on the gaming PC. Produced by Computer Direct Outlet in South Carolina, Volta V is the first commercially-produced computer featuring a hardwood chassis made from domestically-sourced trees, and it’s inspired by honestly-made wooden furniture. Each one is outfitted to custom specifications, creating a workstation that is perfect for professionals, gamers, and those interested in a powerful statement piece for their desk.

History

It isn’t Computer Direct Outlet’s first rodeo. Born in 1997, Computer Direct Outlet has been creating custom computers with lifetime service warranties ever since. In 2011, Underwood and his team of designers and engineers started designing a computer that could support high-end programs yet maintain speed and quality graphics. After years of prototyping designs and operations, Underwood released the Volta, which became a hit among architects, photographers, graphic designers and other professionals using high-end programs. Underwood and his team spent 15 months designing and prototyping many versions of the Volta V. “The process was very exciting and frustrating, because for every problem we solved, two more would just crop up. But we wanted to design something that was sustainable and durable,” Underwood said. It was a success, resulting in the Volta V: just as powerful as it is beautiful.
