After Valve’s Steam Machine has been delayed, there is no need to fret just yet. Here we are with word that CyberPower PC will be rolling out their very own Syber gaming PC (although I do wonder whether there is a better name for it) which intends to stake a place for itself in the hotly contested living room, running on the Windows 8.1 operating system rather than SteamOS. Of course, this does not mean that the Syber gaming PC will run exclusively on Windows 8.1, since it will also be able to handle Valve’s SteamOS the moment it comes out of beta. Apart from that, the Syber gaming PC has also been optimized for Steam’s Big Picture mode.
It is said that CyberPower PC’s Syber gaming PC will kick off from $599.99 a pop, where the base model sports 4GB RAM, accompanied by a 500GB hard drive, while relying on a standard graphics card. Of course, this does not rule out the possibility of seeing a model that has higher end specifications, although that will cost you another $100, where it will come with an Intel Core i3-4150 processor, 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Regardless of the model that you pick up, they will be part of a bundle, which frankly, we are not sure what the bundle will arrive with – perhaps in a controller and/or a remote control?
