Since Valve’s latest round of announcements, the biggest questions left unanswered involved the prototype Steam Box itself. Fortunately, earlier today the company revealed details for the machine that 300 lucky testers will receive later this year.
GPU: some units with NVidia Titan, some GTX780, some GTX760, and some GTX660
CPU: some boxes with Intel i7-4770, some i5-4570, and some i3
RAM: 16GB DDR3-1600 (CPU), 3GB GDDR5 (GPU)
Storage: 1TB/8GB Hybrid SSHD
Power Supply: Internal 450w 80Plus Gold
Dimensions: approx. 12 x 12.4 x 2.9 in high
As you can probably guess, the specs outline multiple machines ranging from mid to high-end. Testers will be sent one variation in an attempt to gather a wide range of data. If you’re afraid of receiving a lower end Steam Box, Valve has assured us that each one will be fully upgradable.
