It is the only platform to use the 68000. Its core is not compatible with instruction set of other computers using 68008 or 68010 processors (for example the Apple II), but the graphics and sound standards were the same.

The computer is most noted for its arcade ports and excellent home conversions of games such as Strider, Street Fighter II CE, Sonic the Hedgehog, Snatcher and Halo: Combat Evolved. It also found use as a more expensive alternative to an IBM PC XT for business or personal use despite not being 100% IBM PC compatible (it lacks CGA/EGA compatibility, for example), due to its comparatively high performance and the ability to run native MS-DOS software in XM6 Pro DOS mode with no performance penalty.

The Sharp X68000 was released on October 29, 1987. The system featured bilingual Japanese and English modes of operation.
