The Taito Type X is an arcade system board released by Taito Corporation in 2004. Based on commodity PC designs, the Type X board is upgradeable by developers, with the Type X+ and Type X² models having more advanced graphics abilities.

As the name implies, Type X² is a natural evolution of Type X and X+ that allows the use of newer PC technologies introduced after the unveiling of its predecessors. Like its predecessors, the specs of Type X² are comparable to that of a contemporary PC.

Compatibility: Due to platform specific drivers (Windows XP Embedded), games running on Taito Type X will NOT run on the Taito Type X² platform and vice versa.
