Steamroller? - Page 84

post #831 of 3492
i would have thought they would use nvidia because nvidia has been working closely with valve for openGL porting of source

Various Steam Boxes will most likely have AMD and Nvidia variants for sure.

I would assume a high end Kaveri would be featured in a Steam box. It's the only part that makes sense to me in such a HTPC/gaming device.

But I don't see how a Steam Box competes with the up coming consoles unless it's much less expensive in comparison, meaning significantly under $400-500. Because otherwise, why bother? Big Screen Steam is mostly console port games anyway. Unless Valve personally is going to make a big push into developing/funding Steam Box games, which I highly doubt.

1. both AMD and Nvidia ramping up linux support
2. AMD Mantle should run on Linux Also ( therefore bf4 will run on linux)
3. Steambox can stream games from another computer in a similar fashion to the Nvidia Shield so you should immediately have access to every single game in your steam library

Vaporware is vaporware;Kaveri will be out late 2013/early 2014.
That's the best I can do with the facts available. sozo.gif

*Broken record*

We will know more about Steamroller when:

1) AMD releases the next wave of roadmaps which will focus on the year 2014 and possibly a small chunk of 2015; These roadmaps will be released sometime either in October of November.

2) The APU '14 event which is supposed to be sometime in mid-November 2013, I think.

edit - Lol @ vaporware. Kaveri was only pushed back by a year at most, that's nowhere close to being considered vaporware.
