iBuyPower Steam Box Price and Specifications Released


Yesterday iBuyPower released images of their Steam Box prototype, but there was no mention of the hardware powering the unit or the price. Thanks to The Verge, both of these are answers today.

According to the site the Steam Boxes are powered by a multicore AMD processor and the graphics are powered by an AMD Radeon R9 270 that has 1280 Streaming Processors and 2GB of VRAM. In addition the Steam Box comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 500GB hard drive. With these specs the system should easily be able to render most games above 30FPS.

The units also come at an attractive retail price of only $499 – so you get a decent amount of power without breaking the bank.
