Gamers that were paying attention to CES know that Valve has teamed up to work together on a third party Steam Box that can fit into the palm of gamers’ hands.

The Xi3 Piston looks to provide high levels of performance from a tiny box and features a slew of features including four USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, four eSATA ports to connect more drives, the ability to connect three displays, and more. AMD Trinity APU is what powers the core of the Piston that means it could possibly have a quad core CPU and Radeon HD7660D.

For a small machine this would pack a ton of power that most gamers would possibly not even see out of the next set of home consoles. The machines is modular and provides cool temperatures so there is no need to worry about over heating.

Those that have been keeping up with the Xi3 will want to check out the screens below and keep an eye out for more information regarding the system.
