Atari 5200 emulators

The Atari 5200 console

The Atari 5200 was a video game console produced by Atari in 1982 as a high-end model of the 2600. It was created to compete with the Intellivision. The 5200 was incompatible with 2600 cartridges until a later revision, making it unpopular compared to existing consoles. Many of its games were simply ports of 2600 titles, but it's an interesting piece of history regardless. 5200 emulators can emulate Atari 8-bit family (Atari 800 and similar) computers, too.
