CyberPowerPC reveals $500 Steam Machine featuring 8GB of RAM
Meanwhile, the $700 model features a 3.5GHz Core i3 and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 graphics card.
This year's Consumer Electronics Show is expected to bring news of many new Steam Machines, the first of which was officially revealed today. CyberPowerPC announced two models today, with the base model starting at $500, the same price as Microsoft's Xbox One.
Engadget reports that both systems feature Bluetooth, WiFi, USB 3.0, 8GB of RAM, and a Steam Controller.
The $500 model sports a 3.9GHz A6 CPU from AMD and a 2GB Radeon R9 270 graphics card. Meanwhile, the $700 model features a 3.5GHz Core i3 and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 graphics card, as well as 802.11ac WiFi.
CyberPowerPC will also allow shoppers to customize nearly every component of their machine, meaning you'll be able to spend more than $700 on a configuration if you want. Both Steam Machines are slated to launch in the second half of 2014.
In addition to Valve's own unit, at least a dozen PC manufacturers are believed to be working on Steam Machines to be announced this week at CES 2014. Others include Alienware and Origin PC.
GameSpot has a team on the ground in Las Vegas for CES 2014. We will bring you more written and video content as the event progresses, including coverage of Valve's event today at 5 p.m. PDT. The show officially runs January 7-10, though news is expected to flow out of Sin City all week.
