About a month after the first rumors, thearrival of Steam on Chrome OS is getting closer and closer. In fact, they have arrived online new confirmations regarding the support of some Chromebooks on Steam. At the moment, the list is very limited but it is still a first step towards a complete release of the popular client dedicated to PC gaming. Here are the details.
Steam is getting closer and closer to Chrome OS
The information disseminated by 9to5Google confirm a new step forward in the project that aims to bring Steam to ChromeOS. In fact, a list of the first compatible Chromebook models. The list in question is as follows:
- Volta | Acer Chromebook 514 (CB514-1H)
- Volet | Acer Chromebook 515
- Voxel | Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-3W)
- Delbin | ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5500)
- Drobit | ASUS Chromebook CX9 (CX9400)
- Elemi | HP Pro c640 G2 Chromebook
- Lindar | unknown model from Lenovo
These Chromebooks are high-end models, not yet available in Italy and characterized by far more complete specifications than the models available in our country (there are Core i5 and Core i7 processors). The prices of these models are also much higher than the prices we’re used to seeing Chromebooks.
Google follows the project directly
In any case, this is a first confirmation regarding the future arrival of Steam on Chrome OS. Google is working directly on the project with the aim of introducing support to the store as soon as possible. NVIDIA is also involved in the project with the possibility, in the future, to record the arrival of Chrome OS devices with dedicated video cards and able to access Steam and the entire catalog of games.
