A Haswell-based game console with Iris Pro graphics that originally set out to be an Android gaming platform is now looking to support Valve's SteamOS.

iConsole.tv is an Android gaming platform powered by an Intel Haswell CPU with Iris Pro graphics to offer much better compute and graphics performance than found with other Android gaming consoles like Ouya. Being x86-based, iConsole.tv is now looking to support Valve's SteamOS as well to complement the Android gaming support.

The commitment to supporting Valve's SteamOS on the iConsole.tv was made today via the project's blog. However, details are scarce and the SteamOS integration details won't be available for some months.
