The Steam Machines
The Scan 3XS Steam NC10 is a custom design developed by Scan Computers in conjunction with NVIDIA to provide gamers with the smallest possible PC for their living room. Utilising special components the NC10 is less than a quarter the height of other Small Form Factor PCs making it an ideal fit under your TV on a shelf next to an amplifier, Freeview box or other AV devices.
The Scan 3XS Steam NC10 measures just 202 x 369 x 45mm, giving it a volume of just 3 litres. In comparison, most mini-ITX cube cases have a volume of at least 15 litres – five times larger than the NC10.
As standard it includes a powerful 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphics card, Intel Core i3 4000M CPU, 8GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz and a 500GB Western Digital hard disk. However, as with all Scan 3XS systems, the Steam NC10 will be fully customizable with different CPUs, RAM and storage devices using our online configurator.
The Scan 3XS Steam NC10 will launch in the second half of 2014 alongside the full version of Steam OS and the official Steam Controller. The estimated end-user price is £699 inc VAT.
Steam OS is the exciting new open-platform operating system developed by Valve Corporation, specially designed to give gamers the ultimate living room experience. It incorporates both a TV-friendly interface to the Steam gaming store and social media platform along with your favourite music, TV and movies.
What the press say...
Just look at that chassis! This is by far the slimmest and most premium looking Steam Machine of the lot.
This is currently my favorite form factor of the current crop of Steam Machines
Out of all the Steam Machines announced by Valve at CES in Las Vegas, Scan Computers' NC10 has to be one of the thinnest. The Steam OS-ready device looks… just the right form factor if you're looking to buy a Steam Machine to blend in with your home theater setup.
