A PC emulator focused on accuracy and hardware preservation.

What can I do with PCBox?

  • Learn how computers work at a low level by exploring the source code
  • Run certain demos that don’t work on much else than real hardware (Like 8088MPH, for instance)
  • Run old games or applications, on emulated hardware that they were designed for
  • Intel Pentium 3 emulation
  • Atari PC 4, VIA C3 and Intel i815 (From "feature/ich2" branch of 86Box) emulation
