What's the most powerful CPU you can emulate without slowdowns? I guess around a Pentium 120?

with the dynamic recompiler and depending what i do... even the 233mhz works at 100% but it easily goes down to <50% so i would say Pentium 120 is a good estimative.

I tossed this on my laptop with a Pentium N3700 as a test the other day (my sister has the same laptop and she was interested in a few old DOS games).

The fastest machine it seems to be able to keep at 100% emulator speed with the recompiler off is a 486DX-33. It can handle a DX2-66 if I don't play anything 'higher' than DOOM.

Pretty impressive imo considering that this chip is basically a 1.6ghz mobile CPU crammed in a 6W package. Haven't tried it yet with the recompiler on due to my recent issues with it (and Im not sure if it improves performance or not?)
