It keeps needing to be said that, that is why Steam Os will be installable on anything so that those with uber gaming pcs already who don't want to lug the behemoth into the tv room will be able to stream games from their uber gaming PC in the study/bedroom etc to their 1080p playback capable media player with SteamOS installed already under their tv in the Livingroom.
That's the way I'll be using SteamOS. It's why I can't wait for 8 core Haswell-E too. It might even be possible with multiseat software and sandbox software to be able to have multiple instances of steam on the gaming PC and with all those CPU cores and multiple GPU's to be able to stream multiple steam library games to multiple media players around the house at the same time. My six XBMC devices around the house hooked up to flat panel Tv's made up of low powered uSFF pcs and laptops will in effect become full detail 1080p capable gaming machines too.
The Futures Bright. The Futures Steam Powered!!
Oh yeah, forgot to mention. All cores and GPU's will also be used to power a 4k Occulus Rift whenever that happens or gaming on a 130" 4k projection system.Edited by Calibos - 1/11/14 at 1:33am
