Earlier this week Valve announced specifications for their new prototype Steam Machine’s that would be sent out to beta testers to be put through their paces but AMD hardware was no where to be seen in the listing.
Specifications that Valve revealed for the systems included NVIDIA Titan, GTX780, GTX760, and GTX660 to mix up the specifications for testing.
Together with Intel i7-4770, some i5-4570, or i3 processor for testers, however today Valve have announced that their new Steam Machines will also function perfectly well with AMD hardware installed.
Valve Steam Machines equipped with AMD processors and graphics chips are expected to be made available next year by Valve to add even more variety to the different Steam Machines that will be available for gamers to enjoy.
When Valve first announced their Steam Machines they explained that the Steam machines are going to be made up of a range of different consoles to suit a range of gamers requirements as “Entertainment is not a one-size-fits-all world”. Valve explain’s :
“Last week, we posted some technical specs of our first wave of Steam Machine prototypes. Although the graphics hardware that we’ve selected for the first wave of prototypes is a variety of Nvidia NVDA +1.05% cards, that is not an indication that Steam Machines are Nvidia-only. In 2014, there will be Steam Machines commercially available with graphics hardware made by AMD, Nvidia, and Intel. Valve has worked closely together with all three of these companies on optimizing their hardware for SteamOS, and will continue to do so into the foreseeable future.”
As more information is released by Valve on a release date for the new Steam Machine hardware powered by AMD processors and graphics we will keep you updated as always.
