Zotac’s first Steam Machine gaming PC will feature an Intel Core i5-6400T quad-core Skylake processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 graphics.
The Zotac NEN SN970 Steam Machine also features 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and four HDMI 2.0 ports.
The computer runs Valve’s SteamOS software and the whole thing measures about 8.3″ x 8″ x 2.4, making it look more like a game console than a traditional PC.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFI, Bluetooth 4.0, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, 3 USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a USB Type-C port with USB 3.0 speeds. There are mic and headphone jacks and an SDXC card slot. Under the hood there’s also an M.2 SATA SSD slot for additional storage.
The NEN Steam Machine will ship the system with a Steam Controller wireless game controller.
Zotac first unveiled the computer earlier this year, but the NEN name is new, and the specs have been revised a bit since then: Skylake processors hadn’t even been announced at the time.
Interestingly, Zotac also seems to have opted for a desktop-class GTX 960 graphics card instead of a GTX 970M mobile graphics processor. That change should offer slightly better graphics performance. The change does make the SN970 model number seem a little odd though.
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet.
