ElectoMan on AfA-OS is fast enough with 1500/2000 cycles, see video.
Doom2 is always slow at least on my old PC (DualCore)

Yep your PC is just not fast enough to run DOOM 2 emulated. My Ryzen laptop can only manage about 8000 cycles which isn't really enough to play DOOM 2.

I think with the right tweaking of the config file (cycles) then a Vampire V4 should be fast enough to play some old VGA adventure games and dungeon crawlers.

I think however that DOSBox on AmigaOS consumes a lot of CPU, on my old DOOM2 PC with WinUAE AMiGA x86 Bridgeboard is much faster.

Yes of course my 68k DOSBox port consumes a lot of CPU, don't forget on WinUAE it is emulating a 68k CPU which is then emulating an x86 processor using a massive CASE statement

An x86 game will always run much faster on a real x86 CPU (JIT).

In that Video, emulated 386sx bridgeboard run much faster than original 386sx. on real 386DX40 Doom 1 isn't much fluid. Doom 2 is much more complex.

Now with the latest versions of WinUAE (see second video) DOOM2 is even faster.
