More Info and A Pic of Valve’s Rumored Console
As we previously reported, rumors suggest that Valve is working on a Steam gaming console, with specs that allegedly include a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GPU. An anonymous tipster pointed to the Twitter account of Valve employee Greg Coomer, where a picture was posted on November 2nd, 2011, with the following caption:
Built this tiny PC. i7 quad core, 8GB ram, Zotac Z-68 mobo w/ onnboard Nvidia mobile gfx. Runs Portal 2 FAST.
i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, an NVIDIA GPU… coincidence? Perhaps. The Xbox controller in the picture sure is suggestive, but ultimately, this speculation proves nothing. While this may be a prototype for this alleged console, it could also be a completely unrelated project, or even a hobby project.
Valve has yet to comment on the rumors.
