Nestopia UE is an open-source Famicom (NES) and Famicom Disk System (FDS) emulator written in C++. Nestopia allows graphical enhancements such as texture scaling and TV filters, as well as netplay support. It's one of the most popular and most compatible emulators around.

According to TASVideos, Nestopia is ranked as the fifth most accurate NES emulator, with 1.40 scoring a score of 82.3%.[1] Other NES/FDS emulators, such as Mesen and puNES, have higher scores on these tests. However, these test ROMs don't test everything that matters for accurate emulation (and in some cases, test stuff that doesn't matter for emulating any games). So the test results may be a bit misleading, but that does not mean it is not a high accuracy emulator.
