PCem was 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. Support for ACPI BIOS was added in v15.
It has been discontinued as of June 12, 2021.
A fork known as 86Box is also available, which includes a number of additional features, such as support for SCSI and additional boards.
