The Alpha68k is an arcade board type from 1986 designed by Alpha Denshi. The NeoGeo base system (which was designed by the same company) is heavily based on the Alpha68k.

The Alpha68k is interesting in that it mainly uses classic logic chips instead of ASICs, which reveals lots of the NeoGeo's GPU design.
