Taito Type X²
The Taito Type X is an arcade system board released by Taito Corporation in 2004. Based on commodity PC hardware architecture, Type X is not a specification for a single set of hardware, but rather a modular platform supporting multiple hardware configurations with different levels of graphical capability. This flexibility allows game developers limited choice in selecting a configuration to fit the game's specific requirements, and allows the platform as a whole to more efficiently support gaming titles with vastly different computing needs. For example, the Type X+ and Type X2 models have upgrade graphics processing power, which could be put toward better game visuals, or outputting to higher-resolution (HDTV) displays. The Type X7 board is used primarily for pachinko machines in Japan. Taito Type X and X7 use Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional as the recommended development platform. The Taito NESiCAxLive add-on allows arcade owners to use a digital distribution system to download games.
Taito Type X2 Satellite Terminal is a variant of Taito Type X2, but supports networked multiplayer play.
