[engadget] Here are all of Valve's Steam Machines from CES 2014, in pictures - Page 7

post #61 of 103
If you own a good Gaming PC I don't really see the Point of buying one. But I do see it going over big for people who own consoles and never had a Gaming PC. But it will depend on Availability in stores to make it easy for consumers to purchase Them like the Xbox and PS4. Also price point will be a big issue.

the only off the shelf steam machines that make sense are the ultra compact ones that does not use standard off the shelf parts that DIYers can self clone.

we dont need another ITX box as a console, we want a console that is designed as a console that can still run x86 windows and have mid end hardware that is capable of 1080p gaming

The only problem with those boxes is they use mobile parts and offer much less performance for the price. Rendering them worthless.

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.

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.

I can already do that and 4k at 30Hz via hdmi cable and without additional device and lag. With one push of the button on harmony. rolleyes.gif
Once hdmi 2.0 capable gpu or adapter will be available it will be able to do 4k at 60Hz.

You Don't need a Steam box to stream games from your pc to the Living room lol.
You Also don't need Steam OS to do it either.
I currently stream from my office in my den to the living room and use Big Picture watch movies Net Flix Browse the web with out a overly priced Steam Box LOL

sure desktop parts offer better bang for buck but its not like mobile parts offer far less performance.

a high end gaming laptop is more then adequate for 1080p gaming, i'm willing to pay more for a more compact form factor. issue with ITX boxes is they are still far too big

Do you live in a refrigerator box? I can't see how an itx box is now too big? All joking aside, I understand the push for smaller cases. However, there comes a point when cooling and performance is compromised as well as being able to work on it easily if there is an issue.

OT:

Really disappointed in these steam machines... I was hoping to see $300-$500 systems that were decent... it's not like linux gaming is anywhere near on par with Windows gaming at the moment unfortunately.

it still doesnt fit in my messenger bag/ back pack, its too big.

the closet thing that i have that fits is an AMD 5800k in an ISK100 case, it still lacks performance for 1080p.

all my other ITX cases are just large and taking up too much space and they are still only a fraction of the prodigy in size.
