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.
