The first steam machine not made by Valve is coming by way of custom PC provider iBuyPower.
Set to release sometime in 2014, the living room PC will cost $499, the same price as Microsoft’s recently released console. Coming in two SKUs (that only vary aesthetically), the system will feature a multicore AMD CPU and a AMD Radeon R9 270 Graphics Card. The machine will also come packaged with Valve’s Steam controller and 500GB hard drive.
While the console looks a lot like the PS4, IBuyPower has said that the device falls somewhere in-between Sony’s latest console and the Xbox One in the size category. As you can see from the picture above, the system will come in a glossy white shell, which will definatly help it stand out from all of the glossy black plastic that seems to be standard with electronics these days.
