Sega Model 3 is an arcade platform released in 1996 as the successor to Sega Model 2. Model 3 mostly continued arcade games series established on previous Sega arcade boards, with games such as; Daytona USA 2, Sega Rally 2, Virtua Fighter 3 and Star Wars Trilogy Arcade. Upon release, the Model 3 board was more powerful than any other arcade platform on the market, as well as any home console or computer at the time; it took several years for home systems to catch-up. Model 3 was followed by Sega Naomi in 1998 which uses a similar architecture to the Sega Dreamcast.

Comparisons[edit]

  • Supermodel is an open-source Sega Model 3 emulator. The aim of the Supermodel project is to develop an emulator that is both accurate and playable. It is in an early stage of development, meaning it lacks several planned features (such as a user-friendly graphical interface). It has an experimental multi-player network build (~6 games supported for now). Make sure to use the latest SVN version since the build on the home page is severely outdated, and check out the help page for instructions on how to use it. A libretro port has been confirmed to be in the making.
  • MAME has a driver for Sega Model 3 but emulation is in a preliminary state, with no games marked as working yet. It is slow and has lots of bugs, some games hang or crash.
