PCem v15: 8086 running at the same speed as 8088

Hi!.

First of all thanks for improving PCem :).

I was testing PCem v15 and noticed 8088 and 8086 machines are running at the same speed (lm20 benchmark showed 4.7 MHz on an 8086 8Mhz).

Hope this is a mistake I made.

Thanks!

EDIT: I tested several roms for 8086 machines, VTech Laser XT3 seems to fail, other 8086 machines are running as expected.

You mean this? I bet is real behavior... I don't own a real Laser computer to test it though

Yes... But It was also very slow in other programs and games, then I checked other 8086 machines and it worked faster.

The VTech machines boot with turbo off. Press CTRL+8 after boot to speed them up.

I was testing some homebrew I'm making to work on 8088 8086 and I was confused.

Thanks a lot. :D
