The Consumer Electronics Show for 2014 is on and it was inevitable that a number of Steam Machines were going to be announced and showcased after Valve opened the floodgates for their Steam OS and Steam Machine initiative back in 2013.

Apparently this Alienware-Valve collaboration has been in full effect for nearly 4 years the the fruits of their labor are about to be realized in the form of the X51 Steam Edition.

AlienwareX51Complete with acoustical and thermal whammadyne-3000 design, this gorgeous media center looks to be the Dell-Alienware answer to the Steam Machine gold rush set for release in late 2014.

“With the introduction of the X51 system nearly two years ago, Alienware       kicked off an evolution of small form factor PC gaming systems designed       for every living area,” said Frank Azor, Co-Founder and General Manager       of Alienware. “When Valve and Alienware began collaborating on our       vision for a PC gaming console several years ago we could clearly see we       were on to revolutionizing PC Gaming forever.”

Alienware is also on the record to be developing a PC gaming console in addition to this X51 gaming desktop. Stay tuned for more steamy news!
