At AOU 2009 Sega revealed the Ringedge and Ringwide trademarks we discovered are being used for a new series of Windows based arcade boards. Both pieces of hardware utilize Windows Embedded Home 2009, but have different chipsets. Ringedge has an Intel Pentium Processor E2160 running at 1.8Ghz at its core while Ringwide uses a Celeron Processor 440 running at 2Ghz.

 

When compared side by side Ringedge appears to be the upper tier model and Ringwide is built with budgets in mind.
