PCem is an x86 personal computer emulator written by Sarah Walker. A dynamic recompiler is available, optional for 486 and WinChip and mandatory for Pentium processors, providing accurate performance for those processors. The original author has quit the project in June 2021, although development has then resumed in December 2021 under a new project maintainer.
