A PS3 uses an IBM Cell processor, which more or less amounts to a
dual-core PPC970 (plus some specialized coprocessors which I suspect
would not be all that useful in running an X86 emulation).

Dunno how it stacks up against recent Intel/AMD offerings, but
I suspect there's enough raw horsepower there for an emulator to
keep up with a typical Intel/AMD uniprocessor from the era when
XP was released.
