The Coolest Thing About This Valve-Backed Gaming PC Is That You Can Probably Drive A Truck Over It

Kotaku - The Wii U can't survive a microwave. The PlayStation Vita can survive a four-foot drop. And I guess, technically, the Xbox 360 can run Crysis. (PC, Valve)

I really doubt the "steambox" will be those Xi3 PCs. I don't think they are even powerful enough to run games.

If you're in the position to where a truck is driving over your shiznat, you don't deserve a working console.

i think the steam box will be sorta neat if it has direct x support.

It's running Linux, gius. Never, ever will it run DirectX natively. Linux is a different OS for a reason, it's a completely different computer system. Steambox will run OpenGL. Which, is a GREAT thing. OpenGL is taking over graphics everywhere. It is a much more modern, fast, and just better 3D library than anything else out there. That's all it will run. Welcome to Linux, and welcome to the future of gaming.

(Bonus points: Linux based OS's usually runs about 15% better than Windows on the same hardware. It grows exponentially when it has less hardware.)

OpenGL has been around for a long time (longer than directX), but pc games are almost all made in directX now. And who knows what valve is actually going to do. Im guessing they will have their own flavor of linux, maybe they will have some sort of directx support as well. The only thing I can see that would really hamper them would be microsoft themselves, so Im guessing valve will add all the rest of what directX does (its not just graphics) and make it easy for devs to work with.

Somehow I don't see them putting enough power into that little box to run latest video games...

But if they prove me wrong, they will have my money.
