Ahead of their press event at CES 2014, Valve has today told EnGadget the first 12 companies that they will be partnering with to create third-party Steam Machines in 2014.

The list so far includes Alienware, Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, CyberPowerPC, Origin PC, Gigabyte, Materiel.net, Webhallen, Alternate, Next, Zotac and Scan Computers, however Valve say that some might be signing up at a later data.

This news comes after Valve kicked off their own Steam Machines beta late last year, and will allow the company to focus more on their SteamOS software rather than trying to manufacture the system itself.

Out of all of the companies, we have only seen plans from iBuyPower so far, who revealed their prototype earlier today, we should hear more during Valve’s press event later on today.
