If you have ever thought of buying Valve’s Steam Machines in future, cutom builder iBuyPower has a machine for you in 2014 and it ill cost you $499 – same to Xbox One price but with the specifications of a high-end computer.
Last September, Valve has reveled that the multi-branded Steam Machines are coming tus came the first “branded” unit in a glossy white case with a customizable light bar in the center as shown in the image. iBuyPower revealed its Steam Machine prototype with multi-core AMD processor, $180 worth AMD Rdeon R9 270 Graphics card, 500GB HDD, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. These specs aren’t the firm’s revelation, what it has revealed is the size of the console, which would be smaller than Xbox One and larger than PS4.
The device will be running on Steam OS, which is based on Linux core and the company claims that the compatible games can run at 60fps with 1080 pixel resolution – not revealed the game settings to run with this phase, but we expect a better performance similar to the Xbox One and Sony PS4.
iBuyPower is not alone in this section and many other “multi-branded” machines are coming but not announced or revealed the pans yet. We expect to see those consoles in the CES 2014 event to be held in January. However, the rumors suggests that Valve’s own machine will be coming with Intel Core i7 CPU with Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 graphics card, motherboard, hard drive and unique cooling solution in the nutshell.
