It would be kinda sad if a computer with a 2000 euro price tag couldn't emulate a console game from 1996.
I think even Raspberry Pis can handle it.

OK sorry about 040 speed.
I think PC's were always more powerful than PS1. 486DX33 can run Doom probably the same as the PS1. Pentium 60 came out in 1993, PS1 came out in 1995. At that time there was already P133.
EDIT I just researched more on the internet, looked at all of this on wikipedia etc. Here are the links

Doom is a pretty terrible example since it's written for PC-style graphics systems, not the 3D acceleration of the PS1. As a result, it will always compare poorly to the PC version. Look at any of the games developed for the PS1 and later ported to the PC for a comparison in the other direction. And then that's not taking price into account - a PC capable of running Wipeout 2097 for example (3D acceleration and Pentium class CPU required) was far more expensive in 1995 than a PS1.

More expensive, yes, but power still doesn't compare.
No way is a PS1 more powerful than a P100 with 16 meg of ram, and a P100 was not top of the range or brand new with the PS1 came out.
Wipeout on PS1 runs in very lo res.

Well, if money's no object then there are always far more powerful systems to compare with. Of course a PC like that is far more powerful, but not every PC was automatically a Pentium, just because the top end ones were - at that time, just like now, the majority were far from the bleeding edge. Most PCs at the time would have struggled to run most Playstation games, not least because 3D acceleration wasn't all that common at the time. In your example, a P100 with 16MB RAM and no hardware acceleration would not be able to run Wipeout 2097, whereas a PS1 could. It's never quite as black and white as you seem to believe.

Wipeout 1 runs on the PC in very low res too FWIW.

I was rebutting the assertion that the best upgrade to your PC was to get a Playstation, in 1995. If you had a Pentium, buying a graphics card was much cheaper than buying a Playstation. I don't think the Playstation was, at any time in its life, an upgrade from a PC

Yes, which is why I said that not every PC was a top-end PC at that time, so if those sorts of games were your thing, the PS1 was a sensible upgrade. If your PC was a couple of years old, chances are it was a 486 at best. A PS1 was far cheaper than dropping 1500 on a new PC for an extra few FPS in Doom.
