iBuyPower Reveals the Prototype of their $500 Steam Machine

When Valve’s official Steam Machine hits the market in 2014, it won’t be alone. iBuyPower has revealed the prototype for their own Steam Machine, which looks a little bit like a white PlayStation 4, carries the same $500 price tag as the Xbox One, and contains pretty decent PC guts.

The box is powered by a multicore AMD CPU and contains an AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics card. It will also come equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 500GB hard drive and packaged with the Steam Controller. It features an integrated power supply so you won’t have to deal with a cumbersome power brick.

The idea of having a gaming PC crammed into a console is no doubt an exciting one, but keep in mind that the box will run Steam OS, so that limits your gaming selection considerably. There’s still a library though and Valve has said that major developers will be putting out triple-A titles for Steam OS in 2014, so they’re coming.
