The temptation to release their Steam Machine succumbed to many companies. iBuyPower, too, was among them. Its developers have created a console that received “name” SBX.
Actually news release took place in the autumn of 2014 – in the form of “naked” platform for enthusiasts. Without SteamOS and corporate controller Valve complete.
We have now fixed the bug. They presented an updated modification of the project – running above the operating system, with the “right” gamepad and an attractive price tag.
First iBuyPower SBX pleases low (relative to competitors) value. Pay for Steam Machine will have only 460 US dollars.
That for this amount will get users? Very balanced solution to the processor AMD Athlon X4 840. Plus graphics accelerator Radeon R7 250X (with 1 GB of video memory GDDR5).
If we talk about memory, the most “junior” model is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and hard drive to 500 GB. However – surcharge – both are easily double.
In addition, the presence of a complete set of necessary connectors and ports from USB to HDMI.
Body from iBuyPower SBX pretty interesting – steel, coated with plastic. Install it somehow allowed: vertical, horizontal, and so on.
Home “chip” design – LED strip that serves as an indicator for all occasions. She can impart any color to provide even animations.
For those who do not want to burden themselves with the settings – there are ready-made templates.
Release Management will be held in November this year.
