Valve Wants to Make Your House ‘Steam-Ready’ with Steam Link
Gabriel Roşu / 2 years ago
GDC bring a lot of announcements, one of them being from Valve. The company has announced its new Steam Link, which is a gadget that will “extend your Steam experience to any room in the house”.
Steam Link is said to work by streaming content from Steam, providing that both Steam Link and the streaming source are on the same network. The device is said to be compatible with the PC, Steam Machines, Mac and Linux.
Judging from what steam has made here, we can safely say it is a receiving device for its In-Home technology, which lets you stream and play on your low-end notebook, for example, all your games straight from your high-spec PC. The only difference is that Valve wants you to hook up its new Steam Controller, which was also advertised at the event, and your TV to it.
In terms of hardware specs, Steam Link comes with three USB ports and a HDMI output. It is able to output video at a resolution of 1080p and 60Hz with “low latency” and will be available in November for a price tag of $49.99 .
