Steam Machines — Linux-based computers designed to play Steam games with all the bells and whistles at their best settings, come in a wide variety of colors and sizes, as well as configurations, apparently.
For $499, the new CyberPowerPC Steam Machine A will come with a 3.9GHz AMD A6-6400K processor and AMD Radeon R9 270 discrete graphics, 8GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive, in a new custom case. A Steam Controller and software comprising of SteamOS also comes in the box, when it ships in the second half of 2014.
It won’t be able to run all your Windows games, of course, but Valve is promising to announce a raft of content for the Linux-based SteamOS operating system.
On a side note, loading Windows on to these systems will only be a matter tinkerers getting gutsy.
