Origin PC Chronos Steam Machines Target the High-end

Origin PC is pulling out all the stops for its Steam Machine, applying all the same sort of design philosophies it has to its boutique PCs. Interestingly, the box on display at the Valve event were different that the ones Origin showed us earlier. Given that these things aren't shipping until later this year, there's still plenty of time for design changes.

  • Price TBD (configurable)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K (3.9 - 4.6 GHz)
  • RAM: Up to 32GB 2133 MHz
  • Graphics: 2 x 6 GB Nvidia GeForce GTX TITANs
  • Storage: Up to 14TB w/ 4 hot swap drives

    As someone mentioned in another Steam Machine thread, why the hell are they putting Titans in these??? Makes absolutely zero sense for a gaming machine to have weaker, yet more expensive graphics cards.1. Put in 780 Tis2. Lower the price accordingly3. ??????4. Profit

    Let's be honest here: the only people likely to buy this are people that have so much money on their hands that the time taken to assemble a computer as good (or better) would be more valuable than the machine itself. You could probably even hire a company to assemble a computer, with the same or superior specs, and it'd probably end up being cheaper (where I live, the good companies charge 5-10% of the component price as their fee for building it).But I'm just speculating since no price was made public. Will they prove me wrong? I doubt it.
