    Default Intel & ARM?

    Read the specs: http://www.iconsole.tv/iconsole-tech-specs-faq/
    Not very clear... the Box has a x86_64 CPU, but how does it handle Android? ARM CPU or is it the x86 version of Android...

    So packing Android alongside things seems to be all the rage now.

    I was hoping for Ouya releasing a SteamOS console with its Android app store offered in parallel by emulation similar to that in SailfishOS ... oh well, perhaps it will come...

    Default Great news ifi t is CHEAP and has PCI-E

    I think that this cheap Intel chips with a discrete NVIDIA card can beat actual MS Xbox and Sony PS4 AMD consoles with cheaper prices for better performance

    And I have just seen a demo of the new Nvidia - ARM K chip and if Steam games can be compiled for ARM can also be a great cheaper alternative to AMD consoles

    They can't, aside from those already having ARM ports.
