: Valve has invited third-party companies
to develop and release their own Steam Machine living room PCs, packed with Valve's SteamOS and a Steam Controller. Manufacturer iBuyPower has taken up the offer, and today revealed its own Steam Machine.
The iBuyPower machine is still early in development but is already running SteamOS, and comes in two different model types, currently codenamed Gordon and Freeman. The company is planning to release the device sometime next year for $499, according to
The Verge, and will come with a multicore AMD CPU and an AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics card.
The console, which comes with a 500GB hard drive as standard, is said to be bigger than the PlayStation 4, but smaller than the Xbox One. Click through to Engadget
