SMACH Zero previously known as the SteamBoy has revealed the specifications it should be releasing with.
I am still extremely sceptical that it will even see a general release, but stranger things have happened. It’s a bit different to releasing your own full platform, since it will have an existing games library and the operating system (SteamOS) is already done for them. With that in mind, if the price is right it could see easy success.
Quote AMD embedded G-Series SoC “Steppe Eagle” with Jaguar-based CPU and GCN-based Radeon graphics.
- 4 GB RAM memory
- 32GB internal memory and SD Card Slot
- USB OTG
- 5-inch Touch screen with 720p resolution
- Configurable tactile gamepads
- HDMI video output connection
- Wi-Fi conectivity
- Bluetooth connectivity
- 4G mobile network connectivity (PRO model only)
Would be very interested in getting my hand on one of them, as I would love to play some Steam games on the go even with settings turned right down. If the price point is right at release, we will pick one up to review.
How do you feel about a SteamOS handheld?
