Powerful Steam Machines coming in 2015

Valve recently published its list of Steam Machines which will go on sale in November 2015.

For those of you unfamiliar with Valve and Steam, Steam is often described as iTunes for PC games, and Valve is the company which conceived the online gaming platform.

The various Steam Machines will be built by third-party manufacturers, but will run the company’s SteamOS and are aimed at “bringing PC gaming to the living room”.

“Looking for a lightweight gaming machine to cuddle up next to your DVR? Maybe you’re interested in running the latest release at 4K? Are you looking for an all-in-one solution to power your VR headset?” Valve asks, knowing full well we’re interested in all those things.

Well, then there’s a Steam Machine for you.

All Steam Machines come with a controller, and vary in pricing depending on what hardware they are packing. A list of the premium Steam Machines coming to the market later this year is detailed below.

The various “budget” options can be viewed on Steam’s store page, while some hardware details are yet to be finalised on certain models.
