Steam Link streams PC games directly to TV
Valve has been around for a very, very long time. First starting as a game developer, the company – under the wings of its founder, Gabe Newell – is now the “go-to” digital distributor for games around the internet.
The company recently announced a whole new range of products, such as new, more powerful Steam Machines, the availability of the Source Engine 2, as well as their collaboration with HTC to create a new VR headset. Among these products is also a streaming device: Steam Link.
As reported by Engadget, these little add-ons cost US$50 (approx. RM181) and, just like Chromecast and a Miracast Display, are designed to stream content directly from your PC or Steam Machine directly to your TV, provided that the devices are on the same WiFi network. Valve has said that the Steam Link will be able to handle gaming at 1080p (Full HD) at 60Hz, with minimally low latency.
There's not a lot of information going around about the Steam Link as of yet, but the product was up on the Steam Store for a brief moment, and judging from the pictures, the device will come with three USB ports, Ethernet, HDMI and a power button.
