After several updates to the system software and firmware and lots of additions to its hardware, the new Alienware Steam Machine is ready for sale.
Now, probably everyone knows about Valve, a company that was formed in 1996 by former Microsoft employees, Mike Harrington and Gabe Newell, which developed famous games like Counter-Strike, Half-Like, Left 4 Dead and Dota. Well, they decided to make a little change and released a gaming console that has over 1,000 games and can take down any PC.
The new Alienware Steam Machine is running Valve’s Steam OS operating system and also has a Steam Controller that is simply amazing, probably the best gaming controller on the market. Alienware Steam Machine is already loved by every hard-core gamer and costs less than 500 dollars.
Now, releasing a gaming console that homes more than 1,000 games, amazing hardware and which is not so expensive is something that probably only Valve could have thought of. The release of this product wasn’t so easy, because there were numerous delays, roadblocks and redesigns that made the Steam Machine the gaming console that it is today. However, the new Alienware Steam Machine is finally here and it is an incredible product that will definitely have a huge success on the gaming console market.
For approximately two years there were numerous rumors or even a beta version with the Steam Machine, but all that ended because they have released the final product. The new gaming console was built by Dell’s gaming division, which was not easy, because building something that costs less than a gaming console, but being more like a gaming PC is something hard to achieve. The new Alienware Steam Machine is available at the price of 449 dollars, which is pretty affordable for every hard-core gamer.
The base model of this gaming console comes with an Intel Core i3 processor, a custom Nvidia graphics chip and 500GB of storage. However, customers also have the possibility to opt for a more powerful configuration, like 1TB of storage and 8GB of RAM for the price of 549 dollars. Moreover, at the price of 649 dollars they can opt for more powerful processors, like an Intel Core i5 or Core i7.
