Traditional double buffering halves the update rate (not refresh rate!) if rendering takes more than 1 frame.

Note that emulator vsync or buffering mode has nothing to do with software running on emulated hardware and its use or lack of vsync or buffering.

Emulator vsync is is sort of like camera that periodically takes photos of some display device's screen. Without vsync camera capture rate and display update rate are not 100% synced (camera is synced to "real world", display device is synced to "emulated world"), sometimes one frame is not captured, sometimes same frame is captured twice. In vsync camera is synced to display's vsync rate.
