i7 4770 and iris pro for gaming ? why not a low end i5 and a descent gpu ? i mean even low end i5's are better tahn amd chips for gaming
That CPU is WAY overkill for integrated graphics.
Think it was noted the Iris Pro was compared to a GT650M. Not all that bad considering where the used to be with their IGP. A discrete GPU would add to the size for the card itself and SFX PSU. Throw out the current form factor, which at that point, pick up a Volt/Revolt or just make your own with a ML07 or RVZ01.
i dont think anyone gets my point you can build a 400$ pc that would outperform these things and cost 1/3 the price
i say the best steam box config would be athlon x4 750 + r9 270/260 then things will be good for GAMING only thats what steam boxes are basically for
I'd say that they're on the right track with these boxes. Many people who don't know how to build their own boxes will buy them. If they do it well and can be upgraded, then more power to them.
As for me, I have a few systems unused here that would run Steam ragged.
FX-8350, 16GB, SLI GTX-570s, 240GB SSD for OS and 2TB HDD for storage.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Intel's gave away these boxes, so of course they're going to feature their best desktop chip with integrated graphics. The 5200 chipset is a good baseline for what developers should support at a minimum, and the i7 gives some overhead for debugging.
I'll want at least an i7 in my steam machine anyway, as it will give some leeway for running services in the background, like my minecraft servers.
After using Linux for about 9 years, AMD is the last chipset I'd recommend in a Steam box. Historically and currently, they have had more bugs than nVidia and Intel on Linux, and their performance has always been less than on Windows (whereas nVidia and Intel have usually been in parity or better on Linux than Windows).
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
