The Steam Machine tag refers to a line of gaming hardware that was developed by Valve Corporation, the company behind the digital gaming platform Steam. Steam Machines were introduced as an alternative to traditional gaming consoles, offering a PC-like gaming experience in a console-like form factor.

A Steam Machine is essentially a compact computer that runs on SteamOS, Valve's Linux-based operating system. These machines are specifically designed for playing games from the extensive library available on the Steam platform.

The key features and characteristics of Steam Machines include:

  • Hardware Configuration Unlike standard consoles, which typically have fixed hardware specifications, Steam Machines provide more flexibility and variety in terms of specifications. Different manufacturers offer different models with varying levels of performance to cater to various budget and performance priorities.
  • Steam Controller Alongside the launch of Steam Machines, Valve also introduced their innovative wireless controller designed specifically for use with these machines. The controller features touch-sensitive pads instead of traditional analog sticks and offers customizable controls for a wide range of games.
  • Built-in Streaming A notable feature of the whole ecosystem enabled by Valve is game streaming. With this technology, users can stream games from their powerful gaming PCs running on Windows or Mac OS to a less powerful machine like a Steam Machine connected via home network.

The aim was not only to offer PC gamers an alternative way to experience their favorite games but also provide console gamers with access to an array of PC titles from genres typically associated with personal computers like strategy, simulation or massively multiplayer online (MMO) games.

To summarize, the "Steam Machine" tag refers to compact gaming PCs running Valve's Linux-based operating system called SteamOS.
These machines offer a dedicated gaming experience with features like customizable hardware configurations and the ability to access the extensive library of games available on Steam.
