0:00 Intro
1:26 But why did Steam Machines exist?
2:15 Basically PC consoles – They even made a controller!
2:53 Linus broke the script
4:02 It was already broken. Let’s tear it down and fix it!
5:36 It’s all standard hardware, but a very nonstandard chassis
6:58 The GPU is NOT stock.
7:49 This was so ahead of its time
9:40 Linus breaks the script again
10:53 Hardware was only half the problem…
11:43 HoloISO to the rescue!
12:42 IT LIVES! But it’s not a good experience
13:53 Tragedy.
14:23 Controllers, old hardware, and shaders, oh my
15:29 What would a modern version without these problems look like?
16:58 Hang on… How did Valve plan to deal with hardware variations?
17:44 Conclusion – All hands on Deck
