Zotac Previews Steam Machine That Piggybacks Your Display

Zotac has revealed its Steam Machine offering, but it won't be ready for sale until the summer. What we can tell you is that Zotac is aiming for a sub-$1000 price point that will include an Intel Core processor with Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics.

Branded under its Zbox brand, the Zotac Steam Machine is in a compact mini-PC form factor that's smaller than mini-ITX based gaming systems.

Exterior enhancements to the Zotac Steam Machine include an all-black third-generation Zbox chassis with orange lighting. Of course, Zotac's Steam Machine offering will ship with SteamOS preinstalled and include the Steam Controller.

We expect the Zbox Steam Machine to reach retailers in the second half of 2014. More details will be released closer to the launch date.

    GTX650 at best(unless they go for a mobile GPU, which I doubt). And even that will be a mission to cool.
