;[[MAME]]:Very extensive in scope, with the majority of arcade system boards from the 1970's, 1980's and early 1990's supported. Do not expect support for more recent boards, such as Atomiswave. MAME focuses on [[Emulation Accuracy|accuracy]] and preservation, meaning usability comes second for the end user. Only the most up to date ROM dumps will work in the latest MAME.

;[[FinalBurn Alpha]]:Supports many boards, such as [[Neo Geo emulators|Neo Geo]], Capcom CPS1-3, and others. It is very good for the boards it supports. The Neo Geo X system, in fact, uses FBA. It offers much better speeds on lower-end hardware than MAME and has been ported to many different devices, such as [[PlayStation 3 emulators|PlayStation 3]], [[Xbox emulators|Xbox]], [[Xbox 360 emulators|Xbox 360]], [[Sega Saturn emulators|Sega Saturn]], [[Android emulators|Android]], [[Wii emulators|Wii]], Dingoo, and many others. Development is inactive, as many of the developers have moved on to [[FinalBurn Neo]].

;[[DICE]]:Emulates old arcade machines from the early 1970's <!--(including Coleco Telstar Arcade)--> at a very high level of accuracy. Since these machines had no CPU, the emulator instead emulates discrete logic components in the circuit board. This method is very system-intensive, and getting full speed requires at least a mid-range gaming PC along with the 64-bit version of the emulator. Due to incompatibility with the newest Windows, the program will need to be run in compatibility mode or else it would crash when attempting to run a game.
