Submission + - SteamBox Prototypes Use Intel CPU, NVIDIA GPUs (

An anonymous reader writes: Valve has revealed their first Steam Machines prototype details. The first 300 Steam Machine prototypes to ship will use various high-end Intel CPus and NVIDIA GPUs while running their custom SteamOS Linux operating system. The Intel Haswell CPU + NVIDIA GPU combination should work well on Linux with the binary drivers and using a range of CPU/GPUs in the prototypes will allow them to better gauge the performance and effectiveness. Valve also stated they will be releasing the CAD design files to their custom living room console enclosure for those to reproduce.
