Closer to the game developer

Software solutions cannot be successful without reliable hardware, and it is of upmost importance for game developers that their content can run without performance issues. For game developers, it goes without saying that more processing power will enable them to create even better content, minimising the challenge of optimising software for specifi c hardware. And software optimisation takes time and for many is not as entertaining as developing content, so outsourcing is often desirable. Slot machines contain random number generators that

can produce thousands of numbers per second, each of which is associated with a different combination of symbols. The game platform needs to manage these various operations within micro-seconds and display high resolution graphics at high frame rates to bring the magic on the monitors to provide the ultimate player experience. High quality animations, with particle effects and multiple videos rendering at the same time are demanding on hardware resource, especially when using software frameworks that are not optimised for the specifi c hardware. As part of the Quixant Software Hub, there are software development and multimedia solutions that allow developers to maximise the performance of the CPU and GPU resources. There are a variety of user-friendly software libraries that are part of the Software Hub which provide access to complex embedded system elements and consist of electronic components, fi rmware, and operative system drivers which accelerate processing for fundamental elements of the game and free up CPU and GPU resources so the game developers can run their content with the desired games mechanics, without a lag and with maximum impact.
