US computer manufacturer, iBuyPower has revealed its prototype for a Steam Machine which they hope to put on sale in 2014.
iBuyPower says that its console will run existing ‘Steam for Linux’ games at 1080p and 60FPS. Currently there are 323 games with some sort of Linux support on Steam, with 245 confirmed to be working, according to SteamDB.
More details were not provided by iBuyPower, but looking at Valve’s own Steam Machine prototype can give an idea of what sort of power will be under the hood: Valve reveals Steam Machine prototype hardware.
iBuyPower has said its prototype is sized between a PS4 and Xbox One, and has an integrated power supply.
The console comes in two aesthetic versions: both have the glowing centre strip, but when turned off, one is clear white and the other black.
