  10. Source only, pass '--enable-x64' to configure
  11. Supports the Conroe model.
  12. As calculated by Carlo Delhez's clkfreq, originally distributed with his XTender emulator. The ZX81 has relatively complicated timing mechanics, depending on signalling of WAIT during NMI; relative speed is a measurement of how closely an emulator matches a real machine in terms of clock cycles spent processing within a frame. 100.0% denotes the same execution speed as a real machine.
  13. After turning off the simulated hardware improvements that were not standard in the original computer.
  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Only available on PC as a libretro core (e.g. RetroArch).
  2. The Game Gear emulation doesn't work.
