First Non-Valve 'Steam Machine' Prototype Revealed

iBuyPower are the first company to release images of their Steam Machine prototype. Speaking to Engadget, the company revealed will be making their own design, which will include the Steam OS and come bundled with Valve's official Steam Controller. They have 2 versions in development (gleefully code named Gordon and Freeman) though they both look identical, the only difference being the colour of the light bar surrounding the pseudo-console.

Reports suggest that one of the prototypes contains multi-core AMD CPU, AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics card and be bundled with one of Valve's Steam Controllers for $499. It's unclear whether the other prototype will be similarly equipped or will be some form of entry level or even premium version with better, or indeed, more humble specifications. Expect them to launch next year, with no doubt more details to come on Steam boxes in the near future.

Looks like a cucumber sandwich. So refined. So civilised.
