Sharp X68000 emulators
The first model featured a 10 MHz Motorola 68000 CPU (hence the name), 1 MiB of RAM, and no hard drive; the last model was released in 1993 with a 25 MHz Motorola 68030 CPU, 4 MiB of RAM, and optional 80 MB SCSI hard drive. RAM in these systems is expandable to 12 MiB, though most games and applications did not require more than two.

- XM6 Pro-68k was, at the time, the only English interface, focused on providing necessary debugging features and has decent compatibility. It has since been succeeded by TypeG in most regards.
- XM6 TypeG is going to be your best bet in terms of accuracy; can run in X68030 mode, good peripheral/expansion support and will run just about any game you throw at it.
- MAME's X68000 core is, in terms of playability, still in a very early stage of development and should only be used if the debugging features of Pro-68k are lacking.
- XM6i is built largely around being able to run NetBSD/X68k. While it can run games, it is clear that this is not what XM6i is focused on.
