yaah and the DS has 2 ARM cores, one running at 66MHz, and the other running at 33. Also the archetecture is vastly different from x86, and x86 has the advantage of out-of-order execution (I'm not sure how much it affects emulation speed though).

so yah, the DS would get its ass spanked by a PII 233MHz CPU.
