Steam Machine prototype from iBuyPower revealed, runs at 1080p and 60fps
Pretty sure valve won't be as stupid as console makers and allow their systems to be sent out with poorly designed cooling.Considering you can install Windows on it if you wanted to, it's basically a PC, isn't it?
Will be interesting to see how it handles heat problems.
It's a PC in console's clothing so as not to scare off people who think all PC gamers are 25 stone bedroom-dwellers who live at home with their mothers. Plus it runs Steam which is a PC content delivery system.
Does the steam box/console fall under PC gaming? Not sure where to post this tbh since it still is steam.
Just seems very stupid price, if people are that desperate for a PC steam machine you can build an ITX PC, with a decent size ITX case like the Fractal Design Node which is pretty small but is 37cm long so it fits in all modern day GFX cards.
I think £900 is abit steep but then I am not sure if people would build an ITX machine.What would that translate to in GBP? A direct exchange is around £900, but we all know it doesn't work that way and we normally get stung here in the UK.
£900 for a high spec ITX build isn't that bad really. If it costs £1469 then not so much. In that case it could be built a lot cheaper. But it is three times the cost of a next-gen console in the United States so perhaps it isn't great value after all.
Definitely one for the 'more money than sense' crowd.
Not sure about those. While the US price isn't too bad, I wouldn't fancy an i3 processor in a gaming rig, nor the AMD A6.
