The Namco System N2 arcade platform runs on an nForce2-based motherboard that NVIDIA developed. It is based on a GeForce graphics card, using the OpenGL API.

It runs a Linux operating system that appears to be based on Debian etch. Also, according to the boot logo, System ES2 PLUS and System ES3 run Windows Embedded 7 as their operating system. It runs in an arcade game racing cabinet designed by Bandai Namco Games.


Because the N2 is based on PC architecture, development for it and porting from it is relatively easy and inexpensive.
