Gallery: All 14 First Generation Steam Machines

Last night during a press event at CES 2014 , Valve’s hardware partners pulled back the curtain on their first generation of Steam Machines, which are small form factor gaming PCs designed to integrate into the living room and run Valve’s SteamOS.

As I observed during title="Liveblog: Valve’s CES 2014 Steam Machine Press Conference [Updated]">our liveblog last night , Valve’s hardware partners weren’t prepared to answer detailed questions about their Steam Machines just yet. The majority of them don’t have finalized names, pricing, or even hardware, and the impression I got is that all of the Steam Machines below won’t be available to the public until the latter half of 2014.

Still, there were standouts from a design perspective. The NC10 from Scan with its curvy, sleek aluminum. The glowlight sandwich from iBuyPower has a subtle futuristic look, while the new diminutive new Alienware makes the company’s X51 looks like a towering monster.

My original goal was to publish photos of the actual hardware at the event, but a dominant pink lighting at the venue really betrayed the good looks these machines have. So, enjoy the gallery below with shots directly from the vendors. I’ve also listed any known specs for the machines, but even these could evolve over time; 6 months is an eternity in this industry.

  • Alienware: No pricing or specs revealed, other than a proprietary motherboard
  • Alternate: $1339, Intel Core i5 4570, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSHD, Nvidia GTX 760
  • Cyberpower PC: $499 and up, AMD R9 270 or Nvidia GTX 760, 500GB of storage
  • Digital Storm’s Bolt 2: $2584, GTX 780 Ti, 16GB of RAM, Intel Core i7 4770K, 1TB HDD + 120GB SSD
  • Falcon Northwest’s Tiki: Starts at $1799, up to 16GB RAM, up to GTX Titan, up to 6TB of storage
  • Gigabyte Brix Pro: Intel Core i7 4770R, Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics, 8GB RAM, 1TB storage
  • iBuyPower: $499 and up, Quad Core Intel or AMD CPU, Radeon R9 graphics
  • Material.net: $1098, Intel Core i5 4440, 8GB RAM, MSI GeForce GTX 760 OC graphics, 1TB SSHD
  • Maingear Spark: AMD A8-5557M 3.1GHz CPU, AMD Radeon M275X graphics, 16GB of RAM, weighs less than 1 pound
  • Origin PC Chronos: Highly configurable, up to 2 GTX Titans, Intel Core i7 4770K
  • Next Spa: Intel Core i5, Nvidia GT 760, 8GB of RAM, 1TB of storage
  • Scan’s NC10: $1090, Intel Core i3 4000M, Nvidia GTX 765M, 8GB of RAM, 500GB of storage
  • Webhallen: $1449, Intel Core i7 4770, Nvidia GTX 780, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSHD
  • Zotac: $599, Intel and Nvidia components TBD
