At GDC Valve has announced a new product called Steam Link that will come out later this year. This product is “designed to extend your Steam experience to any room in the house” according to the official announcement from Valve. The device will work with Steam Machines, Windows, Mac and Linux computers to stream content from steam to the device as long as they are on the same network.
Steam Link will support a 1080p resolution at 60 Hz with “low latency”. The device is designed to take advantage of the PC horsepower you already have in your home. From the above shot it looks like we have two USB ports, Ethernet port and HDMI out. So we are assuming that this device is Ethernet only, much like the NZXT DOKO we reviewed a little while ago. We are going to guess it is going to do the same thing, but for Steam only, not your full PC experience.
The Steam Link will be available in November and will retail for $49.99.
