[[File:Jaguar-and-controller.jpg|thumb|The Atari Jaguar and controller]]The '''Atari Jaguar''' (AJ) was a console produced by [[wikipedia:Atari|Atari]] in 1993. Despite the intense marketing efforts by Atari, the Jaguar is, in fact, a 32-bit console rather than 64-bit, as a whole; only one part of its two CPUs were 64-bit. The console would prove to be the final home console release for Atari, before releasing plug-and-play versions of their older games. There was also a CD addon called the '''Atari Jaguar CD''' (AJ-CD).

The '''Atari Jaguar''' (AJ) was a fifth generation home video game console produced by [[wikipedia:Atari|Atari]] on November 23, 1993 and sold for <abbr title="$432.15 in 2018 money">$249.99</abbr>. It had a Motorola 68000 CPU and 2 custom RISC CPUs. It has 2MB of RAM. Despite the intense marketing efforts by Atari, the Jaguar is, in fact, a 32-bit console rather than 64-bit, as a whole; only one part of its two CPUs were 64-bit. The system's convoluted architecture didn't help matters either, which led most developers to just use the 68000 for gameplay logic. The console would prove to be the final home console release for Atari, before releasing plug-and-play versions of their older games. There was also a CD addon called the '''Atari Jaguar CD''' (AJ-CD).

;[[Phoenix (emulator)|Phoenix]]:A newer closed-source emulator. More compatible than Virtual Jaguar. About 95% of Jaguar titles are compatible (full list available on [http://www.arts-union.ru/node/66 website]). No support for CD games yet. The PC version of the emulator is currently only available in Russian, but an [http://www.rlauncher.com/forum/showthread.php?4160-Help-with-3DO-Phoenix-2-8 English patch] is available.

;Project Tempest:Was the first ever working Atari Jaguar emulator. It emulates some games, but most have issues. As its name suggests it was primarily made for Tempest 2000, with other games as secondary goals. Project Tempest is the first and only(?) Jaguar emulator that supports Jaguar CD games, but only two are compatible; Primal Rage and Baldies (the latter has sound distortion though). It has not been updated since 2004.

;[[Phoenix (emulator)|IrataJaguar]]: The Phoenix emulation project is released as separate emulators for Android, this is the Jaguar version. Identical compatibility to PC version according to the author. Requires fast 64-bit CPU 2GHz+ or better for full speed.
