Let me answer ...

According to PearPC about page ->

PearPPC emulated CPU runs at speed 1/500th (generic, currently implemented into WinUAE) or 1/15th (JIT-X86, canceled for WinUAE in exchange for QEMU) than the host.

Well, according to above the speed difference is 500/15 = 33 in favor of JIT engine.

Although QEMU JIT engine is much more accurate, I hope there should not be much difference in speed in relation to the canceled PearPPC JIT engine.

Someone somewhere mentioned that he had a feeling that the current (generic) WinUAE PPC emulation runs on 7MHz !?

Therefore, theoretically it could mean that future PPC JIT emulation could work on 7 x 33 => 230 MHz !!! (also depending on the PC processor speed)

I hope that the expectations regarding the JIT-PPC emulation speed is somewhere close enough.


According to

Blizzard PPC = PowerPC 603e @ 160 / 200 / 240 MHz

CyberStorm PPC = PowerPC 604e @ 150 / 180 / 200 / 233 MHz

It might even be possible that emulated PPC is faster than the original, which depends on how modern PC CPU will run.
