Apacer showcases new gaming storage solutions at G2E 2018
Aims to enter gaming market with full force
Apacer is a global leader when it comes to industrial-grade storage solutions and supplies storage for the world's top three manufacturers of gaming equipment. From October 9 through 11 of this year, Apacer is participating in Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas to showcase products and technology critical to gaming equipment storage, all of which meet requirements for the new generation of gaming equipment. Apacer aims to actively expand its shares in the global memory market for gaming equipment.
3D NAND NVMe SSDs process high-end video and audio without lag
With the rapid development of video technology, the high resolution 4K/8K curved surface Ultra LCD replaces traditional mechanical gaming machines and comes accompanied by dazzlingly colorful video and audio. Only high performing memory can process video and audio programs without delay in content playback. Apacer is launching a brand new series of NVMe/PCIe products that are designed using full industrial-grade 3D TLC NAND and come with built-in over-provisioning technology. Their sequential read/write speed is as fast as 3300/2600 MB/sec respectively. These products have the ability to operate smoothly at high speeds, allowing them to process a wide range of high-definition video and audio effects with ease.
TCG Opal 2.0 data security protection prevents illegal invasion
The gaming machine is a piece of high-yield entertainment equipment which stores strictly confidential information, such as betting odds, adjustment standards, cash flow data, and member accounts. The built-in storage system must thus be proof against errors or vulnerability. Apacer has created TCG Opal 2.0 storage solutions that utilize a data protection mechanism for gaming machines with tailor-made levels of access for customers. Under each access level, customers can perform more elaborate operations and modify settings. This includes reading/writing data, setting passwords, and customizing instructions. Multiple check points for all possible operational behaviors are designed and matched with AES technology. With dual protection in the software and hardware, data security is preserved under the most rigorous protection net.
CoreLife breaks through the read/write bottleneck and extends SSD lifespan
Once a slot machine becomes popular or enters a high usage period, it continuously has new data randomly written to it in massive amounts. The existing data in the attached SSD needs to be constantly relocated and written in. Such operations not only affect data reading and writing efficiency, but also shorten the lifespan of the SSD in the long run.
CoreLife is designed to break through such a bottleneck. By reading and writing continuous small data, an SSD with built-in CoreLife technology can read and write data twice as quickly as a regular SSD. It is also able to sustain 8 times more P/E cycles than a SSD with an MLC chip and 1.25 times more cycles than one using SLC-lite. The CoreLife technology provides excellent continuous random write performance and significantly enhances the product's durability and lifespan, making it the best storage solution for gaming equipment.
Apacer has years of experience in the gaming storage market and is backed by a strong R&D team. The company has received recognition from the industry for its professional and prompt service. Cindy Huang, Apacer’s Director of the Vertical Market Application Business Division, promises, “Apacer has been dedicated to satisfying the needs of the gaming industry and continuously developing highly reliable memory products. Our unchanging mission is to help our customers enhance their market competitiveness. We will uphold our original vision of ‘trustworthy and reliable’ to serve our customers to the best of our ability while expanding Apacer’s territory in the gaming storage market.””
