Valve officially showed off the 13 official Steam Machines during its brief CES press event this evening, but it was in the aftermath where we got a closer look at the devices. Below, Reviews Editor Lee Hutchinson snapped photos of all the Steam Machine variants in their glorious array of shapes and sizes.

They start at $499, and come in all shapes and sizes.

I think the Gigabyte one and some other one for $499 which had a slower A10 and a R9 270(X?) was the most interesting ones.

The R9 270X still got higher floating point performance than the PS4. The PS4 and Xbox One may still come with the movement detection kits though?

The new Kaveri I suppose will deliver about current-gen performance at least as far as within their hardware goes. If that's true for the same game titles on both platforms I don't know.

I don't know whatever Valve is interested in getting Steam on Android but I would be if I was them. The new Nvidia Tegra K1 could run Serious Sam 3 with all the PC features on whereas the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions can't. So that's pretty powerful too. And tiny!

Way slower than a GTX 780 Ti, even more so 2-4 of them .. but powerful enough for many games for people who are happy to just get a whole bunch of games.

In the case of Windows games since one get lots of old games available even on a limited chip rather than close to nothing it's not too bad.
