Emulation is different. There is a huge
processor overhead for translating/recompiling the instructions that were meant for another processor into something that the native processor can understand. After the translation, the actual execution also requires some CPU time.
Hehehe, now I suddenly remember the most common argument in an emulation board I frequent: "This and that emulator s_cks. Quake 3 can play smoothly on my PC, but the emulator can't even handle a simple PSX game..." :wink:
