Mine must be stuck at the post.
This is Valve’s Steam Machine prototype and SteamOS (hands-on)

Two wi-fi antenna ports, four USB 3 ports, one eSATA port. HDMI and Display port both on the board so maybe they got a Intel integrated setup in mind. Is that a mini SSD in the middle or a 2.5?November 4, 2013 at 3:16 pm #70331FrojoeKeymaster
Its probably a 2.5 hybrid disk drive. One of the ones with 8GB of NAND for caching.
Also more than likely they’re just using a single One size fits all board and the HDMI/Displayport is there for the ones using IRIS graphics. Or it could support multiple configurations for being a low power relay box and for being a full on console. Two sets of video out might confuse the consoletards though.November 4, 2013 at 3:31 pm #70332
Interesting quote in the article……
As promised, the OS is built on Linux (not based on Ubuntu, we’re told, but entirely custom), though you’d never know it as the only interactive layer is all Steam
I hate how they say the Steambox has no streaming of video or music. Then go on to say but the PS4 and Xbox One do, well fuck yeah they do, they have been around for a few years. How about stating the obvious and then saying the Steambox will catch up, it is just a matter of time. Dumb Asses writing an article that promotes the Steambox then in the end sticks a knife in it’s head for DA console players to go “oh well I don’t want that then.” Word it and lay it out better before you do stupid things like that.November 4, 2013 at 3:47 pm #70333Pedro MateusKeymaster
The FUD is strong in this one.November 4, 2013 at 4:13 pm #70334madhi19Member
The PS4 and Xbone won’t even support dlna media servers the way the ps3 did. A Steam Machine is a ppa away from XBMC.November 4, 2013 at 5:11 pm #70335
Exactly Madhi but engadget just stuck it. What a way to promote it. Why the fuck they get one and not LGC? Politics……the dumbasses screwed it up.November 4, 2013 at 7:29 pm #70336linuxgnuruParticipant
I was really rooting for the ps4 until I learned about the lack of uPNP; every night we use our ps3 to stream movies / tv shows from my MythTV server. You can’t even play mp3s from CD / USB flash anymore; it all has to come from the Sony music unlimited service.November 4, 2013 at 7:39 pm #70337
Yeah but the so called unlimited service is now not a free service, it’s apay service to be able to use it like the other service. On Xbox if you want to use Netflix you have to have a monthly paid for account of Xbox live and your Netflix account. WTF? I threw the Xbox out and have no console. When the Steambox is available I will have it.November 5, 2013 at 6:41 am #70341striderParticipant
There’s hardly enough room to plug the GPU power supply, and with a Titan it *will* need an external source of power.November 5, 2013 at 7:05 am #70342
it looks like there is space there for a bigger power supply. Now I would love to test a Titan to see if it stays cool enough,unless the Titan comes in a different box?November 5, 2013 at 7:30 am #70344striderParticipant
The problem isn’t with the size of the power supply but with the space between the edge of the case and the power supply connectors on the GPU. Having another look at it, it seems that there may be just enough room to plug those in (and the power supply may provide custom connectors, to fit between the GPU and the case)November 5, 2013 at 8:03 am #70345Pedro MateusKeymaster

First try, Open Sauce drivers: Silent Crash (0 terminal output). No log file anywhere… Fuck!
Let’s install the propri… Nope, Fedora says: NEW KERNEL! INSTALL NOW!
Looks Like a FUD……..
