SEGA Mega Drive Consoles
The SEGA Mega Drive was one of SEGA's most popular home games consoles which was powered by 16-bit CPU and become a real competitor to Nintendo's rival SNES console. The SEGA Mega Drive was released in Europe in 1990 but had received a prior release as the SEGA Genesis in North America in 1989.
The SEGA Mega Drive was adapted from SEGA's System 16 arcade board, centered on a Motorola 68000 processor as a primary CPU and a Zilog Z80 as a secondary processor. The system supports a library of more than 900 games created both by SEGA and a wide array of third-party publishers and delivered on ROM-based cartridges. It can also play Master System games when the separately sold Power Base Converter is installed. The Mega Drive had an array of expansions released for it including the 32x which allowed users to play 32-bit games developed for the platform and the Mega CD which allowed the playback of specifically released, CD-ROM based games.
