First Steam Machine will cost $1899 USD
Digital Storm announced today that it will launch its first Steam Machine in late January. The system does not include the iconic Valve control, but it will be possible to buy later.
Another unusual aspect is that, at first, will not come with preinstalled SteamOS, then wait for the operating system Valve out of the trial period, once this happens, the system will be sold as a hybrid of Windows and SteamOS.
Technically, the Steam Machine, called The Bolt II Digital Storm has liquid cooling, an Intel Core i5-4670K processor overclocked to 4.2 GHz and offers its owners a great ability to update, remove and replace components – memory, graphics card, hard drives, etc..
The specifications are not yet complete, but the base model will be sold at a price of $1899 USD with several options for updating its features. According to Rajeev Kuruppu, director of product development at Digital Storm, not looking to compete with the price of home consoles from Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, but seek high-end market, “we aim to consumers who demand the best possible gaming experience and those looking for a PC capable of playing any title on your new monitor 4K. “
