Later this year, Valve will ship out 300 prototype Steam Machines for beta testers. If you thought you wanted in on this action, just wait until you see the official system specs. "The prototype machine is a high-end, high-performance box, built out of off-the-shelf PC parts," says Valve. "It is also fully upgradable, allowing any user to swap out the GPU, hard drive, CPU, even the motherboard if you really want to."

  • GPU: some units with Nvidia Titan, some GTX 780, some GTX 760, and some GTX 660
  • CPU: some boxes with Intel : i7-4770, some i5-4570, and some i3
  • RAM: 16GB DDR3-1600 (CPU), 3GB DDR5 (GPU)
  • Storage: 1TB/8GB Hybrid SSHD
  • Power Supply: Internal 450w 80Plus Gold
  • Dimensions: approx. 12 x 12.4 x 2.9 in high

For reference, the current slim Xbox 360 4GB console's dimensions are 12.4 x 11.9 x 7.4.

As we know, multiple manufacturers will be introducing their own SteamOS-powered systems next year. "Some of those companies will be capable of meeting the demands of lots of Steam users very quickly, some will be more specialized and lower volume. The hardware specs of each of those machines will differ, in many cases substantially, from our prototype."

Titanfall's minimum PC specs are totally doable

Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella has shared the minimum system requirements for Titanfall on PC and they're quite low, at least to my eyes: 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 8.1 AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4...more

Yep, that's HD: Resident Evil 4 PC comparison shots

Despite loving the hell out of Resident Evil 4, I never did pick up Capcom's first attempt at a PC port of the 2005 game. By all accounts it was a mess, one that modders were able to salvage to some extent. The new PC version...more
