Steam Machine specs revealed

Valve has revealed the technical specifications for its forthcoming Steam Machines, which it announced last week

Valve has revealed a list of hardware specs for its upcoming Steam Machine prototypes, which will be sent out to 300 lucky beta testers later this year. 

In a post on Steam's announcement forum, Steam Community Manager Greg Coomers posted the following specs for the 300 prototype units:

GPU: some units with Nvidia Titan, some GTX780, 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

Coomer went on to say that the 300 Steam Machine prototypes are high-end, high performance machines built with off-the-shelf parts and will be customisable at the user's discretion.

[The Steam Machine] is also fully upgradable, allowing any user to swap out the GPU, hard drive, CPU, even the motherboard if you really want to," wrote Coomers. "Apart from the custom enclosure, anyone can and build exactly the same machine by shopping for components and assembling it themselves. And we expect that at least a few people will do just that. (We'll also share the source CAD files for our enclosure, in case people want to replicate it as well)"

The Steam Machine spec list is just the latest piece of Valve's strategy to make in-roads into the living room gaming space. Over the last couple of weeks,  Valve unveiled SteamOS, the existence of Steam Machines and the new Steam Controller
