CyberPowerPC’s new division, Syber, has revealed a new line of Steam Machines will be coming at the Game Developers Conference on March 3. The Steam Machines will be a part of Syber’s open platform PC gaming systems.

The devices are expected to officially launch this fall, according to a press release from the company. There are six “consoles” in total, and three of them will be previewed at the GDC. The Steam Machine-Mini and Steam Machine-Mercury will be on display, as well as a concept of the Steam Machine-Switch.

“For gamers who want to break out of the bedroom and into the comfort of the living room, the Syber Steam Machines offers the best performance at an affordable price,” said Eric Cheung, CEO of CyberPowerPC.

One other item being showcased at GDC this week is the Steam Machine-E, which will lead the launch of the line with a price tag of $449.00. It features a quad-core AMD processor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX GPU. As the most affordable system in the lineup, it’s also the least powerful, but Syber believes it is still adequate for gaming at 1080p resolution.

However, this is just one of many products that Syber intends to roll out by the end of 2015. Specialty products will also be a part of the line, such as the Steam Machine-X, which comes with in a “fire-orange color” and a price of $1,399.00. That model will have a Core i5-4960K processor and an Nvidia GTX 970 video card.

Several of the Steam Machines from Syber are based off the Vapor, a living room gaming PC that won our Editor’s Choice award late last year. We loved the system’s balance between compact dimensions and powerful hardware and were surprised to find it wasn’t terribly difficult to upgrade. Other models, however, will use alternative enclosures that in some cases are smaller than the Vapor. We saw some of these concepts at CES 2015, but at this time it’s not clear which will be given the nod for production.

The six Steam Machines will be available on the CyberPowerPC website to customers in the U.S. and U.K. by the fall.
