Chip Shot: Intel Empowers Twelve Hundred Valve Steam Developers with Iris™ Pro

Intel congratulates Valve on their first Steam Developers Conference and continued commitment to growing and supporting PC gaming and the ISV community. Intel is happy to support Valve in these efforts by sampling all 1200 Valve Developer Day attendees with Gigabyte Brix Pro Steam Machines — which Tech Radar deemed the “best rated Steam Machine at CES.” These systems come with our blazing-fast Intel® Core™ i7-4770R processor with Intel® Iris Pro graphics. This processor is a leading edge high performance “system-on-a-chip” (SOC) with quad core CPU, Intel Iris Pro graphics and eDRAM all on a single package. This gives users highly optimized and thermally efficient computing like you see in the Gigabyte Brix, as well as mainstream gaming offerings in the market.
