Valve has released the hardware specifications of the SteamOS-powered Steam Machines beta units they’re working on. The prototype box is meant to replicate a high-end desktop, though Valve’s Greg Coomer has reassured fans that Steam Machines “designed to cost less, or to be tiny, or super quiet” will also exist. But here’s what you’ll find under the hood of the prototype box, which will also be fully customizable by the user.
