PC manufacturer OriginPC today announced a pair of Chronos Steam Machines during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, piling on top of the already-announced systems from iBuyPower, CyberPowerPC, and Digital Storm.

OriginPC made clear that specifications for both the Standard and the SLI Editions of the Chronos Steam Machines are fully customizable, so you won't be locked into the specs listed below. In addition, the specs for both units listed below are subject to change, the company said.

Both units will be available starting in "early 2014," but pricing was not announced. However, looking at the specs, the machines are more than likely to carry price tags above the current going rate for the Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

In addition to Valve's own system, at least a dozen Steam Machines from third-party manufacturers are expected to be announced this week at the 2014 CES. We'll have a round-up of the systems--and further editorial analysis of the machines--as the week progresses.
