IRVINE, Calif.--()--Advantech-Innocore the gaming focused business group of Advantech Corp, announces the new DPX®-E145 gaming system. The DPX-E145 is a complete gaming system for the regulated casino and AWP gaming markets combining all the hardware features necessary for a gaming platform together in a high performance industrial grade system.

Breaking new ground in integrated graphics performance, the new 11th generation Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics allows the DPX-E145 to meet the ever-increasing demands placed on casino slot machines for a multi-screen, high resolution, immersive player experience.

At the heart of the DPX-E145 is the 11th Generation Intel Core processor, which includes high performance dual and quad core CPUs up to Dual Core @ 3.0GHz (3.9GHz max turbo), Quad Core @ 2.8GHz (4.4GHz max turbo) and sporting massive cache up to 12MB. The system is supplied with up to 64GB DDR4 PC3200 system RAM, and the DPX-E145 is ready for mission critical applications that require an ECC memory option.

The “Discrete-level Graphics” core (Intel Iris Xe graphics) outputs to four independent monitors via four DisplayPort DP++ ports. The graphics engine features the latest Intel Xe architecture with up to 96 graphics execution units, providing unrivalled performance and features including Direct X 12, OpenGL 4.5, OpenCL 2.2 and support for video decoding HEVC/VP9/SCC (10 bit). The new display engine is optimized for four 4K displays at 60Hz but also supports two 8k displays at 60Hz.

Even with the unprecedented high performance, the DPX-E145 is passive-cooled requiring no CPU fan in most applications and therefore reducing maintenance costs for potential fan failures in the field.

The DPX-E145 is designed with the same format as the other E series products (DPX-E135, DPX-E140) and has the same “Cabinet-ready I/O”. This innovative design puts all the connectors conveniently in one area and uses typical slot machine industry connectors to provide an economical, robust harnessing design. The need for additional connector boards or backplanes is eliminated saving cost and simplifying cabinet layout and harnessing.

A full feature set of I/O and COMs designed specifically for gaming devices is also included and the system is compatible with Advantech’s software solutions for security, media validation, SAS and diagnostics.

A wide variety of storage devices are supported including SATA DOM, C-Fast, M.2, USB drive and the system has a built in easy-service tray for 2.5” SATA SSDs.

The DPX-E145 is the ideal integrated platform for many gaming, amusement and kiosk applications calling for a very high performance gaming platform backed by the reliability and longevity only available from Advantech and Intel.
