Advantech-Innocore, the established leader in specialized computer platforms for casino gaming and lottery, is pleased to announce the latest member of its highly successful DPX® S –Series products, the DPX-S445. Based on the new Intel7th generation high performance embedded platform, the DPX-S445 gives the gaming OEM the processing power to enable the next generation of gaming machines.

We know performance matters. It’s why we continue to focus on improved performance, delivering significant increases over previous generations and over any other gaming platform in the market – up to 20-30 percent for processing performance and gaming, with 4K, VR and 360-degree content.

The single-board integrated solution has a full feature set of I/O, COMs, storage and advanced security designed specifically for the gaming industry. Three independent monitors are supported via three DisplayPort 1.2 DP++ ports and for even higher performance the standard PCI-Express graphics card slot allows the DPX-S445 to support the latest graphics cards for up to eight additional displays and cutting edge graphics technologies.

Featuring the Intel 7th plus 6th generation Core-I CPUs the DPX-S445 provides:
More speed
More responsiveness
More security
More immersive experience
New technology “on your own terms”

The Intel Embedded platform, lifecycle now up to 10 years for the processors, ensures customers a long-lived and future ready platform. As the latest member of the field proven DPX-S Series, the DPX-S445 is backwards compatible with previous models. The long lifecycle and backwards compatibility ensures customers that they can move to new technology on their own terms rather than being pushed along.

Another way the DPX-S445 benefits customers is the support for 6th generation CPUs as well as the newest 7th generation. The DPX-S445 supports Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and embedded Microsoft operating systems as well as Linux. However only the 6th generation processors have support for Windows 7 and Windows 8. Indeed the DPX-S445 is notably the last embedded platform with Windows 7 support. For gaming customers with a large investment in Windows 7 codebase, the DPX-S445 allows them a last “lease of life” with that platform while they migrate to new versions of Windows.

The all-in-one platform offers all the hardware interfaces, onboard features and security needed for a typical slot machine in the regulated casino gaming market. The gaming subsystem is field proven and approved by regulatory labs for markets worldwide (GLI, BMM, NVGCB, NJ, MT etc). Leveraging this proven technology combined with the latest high performance Intel processors, the gaming OEM can benefit from low risk, fast time to market for their next generation gaming product.
