Syber’s Steambox: Is it Worth it?

The Syber Steam Machine is a unique beast. We’re sure some PC enthusiasts out there are a little wary about trying a Steam Machine for the first time, but if the intent is to play Steam games, we’d like to sway your thoughts towards owning a Steam Machine. The benefits outweigh the drawbacks, and here’s a few reasons why:

Dedicated Resources

The Steambox opens Steam and plays games. That’s it. Resources go to running the operating system and few other operations behind the scenes, so your video, RAM, and processor aren’t churning out extra power to keep Windows processes running. Games run better on a Steam Machine because there isn’t much else to run.

Simple Startup

Steam Machines boot into the SteamOS directly, Just provide your login and password for your Steam account (or make one if you’re new), and your entire library of games is there to play, wherever your Steambox is located. Imagine having your entire PC game library on a 52-inch LED television in your living room connected to surround sound audio.


Steamboxes run on a specialized version of Linux, which means viruses need to be specifically written for that operating system. Not only does that require malicious software to be highly specialized, you’ll only be downloading directly through Steam and through specific virus-free outlets. Play on worry-free.
