[https://segaretro.org/Sega_Model_3 Sega Model 3] is an arcade platform released in 1996 as the successor to [[Sega Model 2]]. Model 3 continued several 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 significantly more powerful than any other arcade platform on the market as well as any home console or computer at the time, with graphical fidelity roughly to par with Dreamcast or even some early PlayStation 2 titles; it took several years for home systems to catch-up. It had an IBM-Motorola PowerPC 603e CPU that could run at 66, 100 or 166 MHz, 33 MB of RAM and two Lockheed Martin Real3D/Pro-1000 GPUs. Model 3 was followed by [[Sega NAOMI and variants|Sega Naomi]] in 1998 which uses a similar architecture to the [[Sega_Dreamcast_emulators|Sega Dreamcast]].

*'''[[Supermodel]]''' is an open-source Sega Model 3 emulator with good compatibility. The aim of the Supermodel project is to develop an emulator that is both accurate and playable. However, after several years of development, it still lacks a lot of the originally planned features, such as a user-friendly graphical interface. It has an experimental multi-player network build (~6 games supported for now).<ref name="multiplayer">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u9dbWuclBc</ref> Make sure to use the latest [https://www.supermodel3.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1206 SVN build] since the build on the home page is severely outdated, and check out the [https://www.supermodel3.com/Help.html help page] for instructions on how to use it.

*'''[[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. See [https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/mame0209/src/mame/drivers/model3.cpp MAME driver] at Git page for current compatibility (Ignore game status at top of page, which just shows boot compatibility, and check official compatibility at bottom).
