Valve: AMD-based Steam Machines are also en route

Mark Hachman | Oct. 11, 2013
Valve Software and AMD confirm that Steam Machine game consoles using AMD processors will arrive next year.

On Wednesday, AMD also responded to the question whether it had been excluded from the Steam Machine program. "This couldn't be further from the truth--AMD is very actively engaged with Valve on these products and campaigns," a spokesman said.

So far, Valve has not said what AMD GPUs will be used. The existing Steam Machine prototypes will be built as follows:

  • GPU: Units will include Nvidia's Titan, GTX780, GTX760, and GTX660 cards 
  • CPU: Some boxes will include Intel's i7-4770, i5-4570, and some i3 CPUs
  • RAM: 16GB DDR3-1600 system memory; 3GB GDDR5 (GPU) 
  • Storage: 1TB Hybrid SSHD (with 8GB of cache)

The Steam Machines themselves will measure 12 inches by 12 inches by 2.9 inches, and contain a 450-watt power supply, Valve has said.
