The PC-FX was a NEC's fifth generation home video game console that was only released in Japan on December 23, 1994 and it had a NEC V810 CPU at 21.5 MHz with 2MB of RAM, 1MB of SRAM, 256KB of VRAM and without 3D graphics support. It also had something called "Back-up RAM", of which it has 32KB.

The PC-FXGA (GA stands for Game Accelerator) was a series of computer boards and sports the same hardware as a regular PC-FX with the exception of an additional processor the HuC6273 that can handle 3D graphics. PC-FXGA is used to play PC-FX games on a PC-9800 and DOS/V but also makes possible for enthusiast to develop their own games.
