Ever since Valve announced SteamOS and Steam Machines there have been two Steam Machines that were shown the most. They were the Alienware Steam Machine and Zotac’s NEN SN970. Not that long ago we took a look at the Alienware unit, and now we have the NEN SN970 to review. This unit is part of Zotac’s extremely popular ZBOX line of mini PCs. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i5-6400T processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, 8GB of memory, and a 1TB 2.5“ SATA hard drive. Like all Steam Machine’s the NEN SN970 will ship with SteamOS pre-installed and an official Steam Controller. This will bring gaming into the living room and you’ll have the massive Steam library of games to choose from, which has more games than either of the two major consoles. Let’s get to gaming and see what the NEN SN970 is all about!
This year was a great one for gamers with some of the most anticipated games of all time coming out.

This device is made to give gamers a dedicated PC handheld with the vast library of games available on Steam. The unit will come in at a very low cost of €299 ($325 USD) for the Standard version and €499 ($542 USD) for the higher specd Pro version.
Things are not getting better for the developers of Batman Arkham Knight for PC. Those looking for a patch that will allow the game to take advantage of multi-GPU technologies like SLI and CrossFire has yet to be seen. Responding to concern for this on the Steam Community forums a developer has stated that implementing multi-GPU support for the game was too high of a risk for creating new problems for gamers that it is “Not Practical”.
The term Steam Machine is something we’ve been hearing for a while now, but the actual real Steam Machines are only coming out now. A Steam Machine is meant to bridge the gap between a console gamer and traditional PC gamer. It brings the Steam experience and Steam’s vast library of games to the living room. Even if you are a traditional PC gamer there are times you just want to sit in front of the TV and play some games. Many people have already done this by building their own HTPC system, but these are bulky and more often than not underpowered. Steam Machines are designed to be smaller than most current-generation consoles, which means you can easily add them to your home theater setup. A true Steam Machine is powered by SteamOS and comes with an official Steam Controller. Today we are looking at Alienware’s Steam Machine (model: ASM100-2980BLK) which is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU with 2GB of memory, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and a 1 TB hard drive. Come on this adventure with us as we see what Alienware’s Steam Machine and the SteamOS is all about.

ZOTAC International, a global innovator and manufacturer of graphics card and ZBOX Mini PCs, makes the case for small form factor gaming with NEN, the most powerful small form Steam Machine. ZOTAC taps into NEN to draw out a truly powerful Steam Machine with minimalism, portability, and an all new design for a new way to game.
We told you last week when Batman Arkham Knight was re-released that it was still broken, and now Steam has officially announced that it is offering refunds for the game. If you are new to this story Batman Arkham Knight was launched for PC in late June, but then was shortly pulled from Steam because of many different bugs and issues.
