Valve Issues Steam Machine Prototype Hardware Specs

Valve has full plans to send out more than 300 Steam Machine prototypes to special users before the year is over. These consist of state-of-the-art computers constructed from new PC components. The hardware specs are quite an interesting mixture of electronic gadgetry. They include a GPU which has units working in tandem with Nvidia Titan, GTX780, GTX760 and GTX660 according to type. Then there is the Central Processing Unit. 

Here too the varieties can be divided according to Intel Core i7-4770, Core i5-4570 and Core i3. As for Random Access Memory: the CPU possesses 16 GB, while the GPU contains 3GB. It functions perfectly with a one terabyte storage capacity on an 8 GB hybrid SSHD. The power supply amounts to 450 watts. And as for the dimensions, they are about 12 inches x 12.4 inches x 2.9 inches. 

The device is available in a custom-made box. Many design objectives got nailed that had been ignored in most previous attempts. Superb power along with a seamless living room experience was at the top of the list. Openness of components was another factor that was looked into. And while this prototype is not necessarily meant for the entire user base, it still holds value for many who are about to test it. However, it is definitely not a substitute for the existing gaming gadget.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
