Update: All pricing, designs and specs have now been posted for third-party Steam Machines.

With CES taking place this week there’s plenty of hardware news to get stuck into and the long awaited reveal of who will be making third-party Steam Machines  has been revealed.

Twelve manufacturers have shown their backing of the Steam Machine concept and these are:

  • Alienware
  • Falcon Northwest
  • CyberPowerPC
  • Origin PC
  • Gigabyte
  • Scan Computers
  • Webhallen
  • Alternate
  • Zotac

CyberPower also revealed their specs and pricing of their Steam Machines and they come in two flavours.

CyberPowers Machine A

  • Price: $499.00
  • Case: CyberPower Steam Machine Chassis
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon R9 2GB GDDR5 Video Card
  • Processor: AMD A6-64000K 3.90 Ghz
  • Storage: 500 GB SATA-III 7200 RPM HDD
  • Chipset: mITX motherboard w/802.11 WiFi+ Bluetooth
  • Acccessory: Steam Controller
  • OS: Steam OS

CyberPowers Machine B

  • Price: $699.00
  • Case: CyberPower Steam Machine Chassis
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 Video Vard
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-4330 3.50 GHz
  • Storage: 500 GB SATA-III 7200 RPM HDD
  • Chipset: mITX motherboard w/802.11 AC WiFi+ Bluetooth
  • Acccessory: Steam Controller
  • OS: Steam OS

These are the first manufacturers to show hands and no doubt as the year rolls on we’ll see more companies coming on board.

I am still not convinced of the hardware specs and pricing, they are not exactly cheap for a gaming machine that’s going to sit in your living room. We’ll have to wait and see if the new Steam Machines will be embraced by gamers but with a large choice of manufacturers it’s not going to make it easy.
