Steam Machines ranked by 3DMark score

January 16, 2014

Valve revealed 14 different Steam Machines at CES covering a wide range of configurations from small streaming boxes like Gigabyte's Brix Pro to Origin PC's twin-Titan powerhouse. There are plenty of choices, but which one offers the best combination of performance and value?

To help you make sense of all the options, we've trawled through our results database to estimate 3DMark Fire Strike scores for each configuration with confirmed hardware specs. These estimates are based on PCs with similar hardware running Windows. The performance may differ under SteamOS using Linux drivers, but the relative differences should be the same.

For Steam Machines with announced prices, we also calculated a measure of value - how much 3DMark performance you get for your money. 

You'll find all the known details summarized in the new Steam Machines comparison page in the Hardware section of our website. After you've seen the choices, why not download 3DMark and see how your own PC compares?
