I'm Dan Ackerman here at E3 2014 with a gaming PC that thinks it's a living room console.
This is the Alienware Alpha and we first saw this earlier this year When it was the Alienware speed machine, one of a whole batch of gaming PCs that were gonna run Valve, Steam OS, and come with a really unique Steam controller.
Now that whole Steam platform has been delayed until at least next year, so Alienware took the small form factor boxes they made, that's very cool, and they decided to flip it.
Now it's a Windows 8 machine that's going to ship with a the standard wireless Xbox 360 controller, that's still the.
The PC standard, and they're gonna include a ten foot interface, kind of a custom interface, that's gonna let you control the entire PC from the game pad.
You're not gonna need a keyboard and now, they don't have that interface ready to show yet but they do have some games running on it.
component-wise, it's gonna have an Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, depending on what kinda.
Configuration you want and it's gonna have NVIDIA's very power efficient small Maxwell graphics platform, and that lets you run, you know games at a pretty good setting at 1080p which is what you want, when hooking it up to your living room PC.
And that's the idea here to get a gaming PC that's as easy to hook up to your TV as a game console is, and, as you start with the lower end specs, it starts at 549 even if you bump it all the way up it's still gonna be under $1,000.
