How fast can the PPC Emu be?

How fast can the PPC Emu be?

Postby DillRye » Jul 15, 2002 @ 6:21am

I was just wondering How fast the PPC emu runs? Is it throttled to only run so fast? It runs a little sluggish on my pc(colors are sooooo much better than on my jornada :D, but the speed doesnt seem too much better), but im guessing since its only 800mhz. Just wondering if anyone else had experience with this.

colors are better then on most PPC because you have got perfect 565 color images and most PPCs downgrade it to 444 images:(

About emu speed, on my duron 600mhz emulation worked about 4-6 times faster (depends if debug or release build on emu vs release build on PPC) for a more complex project using cpu only. FPU instructions tend to work 20+ times faster.
Of course those results are PC cpu dependent.
