Steam Machines will utilize AMD hardware in 2014

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Speaking to Forbes earlier today, Valve confirmed that AMD graphics hardware will be included in its Steam Machines, which will become commercially available next year. It's a bit of a shocker, truthfully; when Valve first revealed the specifications for its initial prototypes, the machines included graphics cards manufactured by AMD's rival, Nvidia. Many took this to mean that AMD would not be producing hardware for the consoles - after all, several Nvidia enginners are actually working directly on the console with Valve. 

Steam Machines will utilize AMD hardware in 2014

Valve's PR representative Doug Lombardi replied to an email from Forbes (oddly enough, at the urging of AMD) that this most definitely is not the case.

“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 +0.72% 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.”
