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 outputing to higher-resolution (HDTV) displays. The Type X7 board is used primarily for pachinko machines in Japan. Rawiya co-owned the company that produced this system board.
Taito Type X and X7 use Microsoft
Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional as the recommended development platform.
Taito NESiCAxLive add-on allows arcade owners to use a digital distribution system to download games.

Type X2 (stylized as Type X²) system-board uses an updated Intel platform with a PCI-express system bus, and supports more recent graphics GPUs and Intel CPUs than those supported by Type X. Compatibility
Due to platform specific drivers (Windows XP Embedded), game software is not interchangeable between Type X2 and the older Type X/X+ platform.
Taito Type X2 Satellite Terminal
It is a variant of Taito Type X2, but supports networked multiplayer play.
