what would the system condition have to be in order to emulate an x-box game at full speed if there's an x-box emulator?

I dunno, something 100GHz? In all seriousness the XBox is made up mostly of PC parts, with the right kinda PC that's still more powerful than the XBox a translation might be possible oneday...

I think I read that X-box has a 733mhz processor and a modified Geforce 3 GPU. I'm sure it would take a very fast PC to emulate it full speed. It will probably be at least 2 years after the release of X-box before a descent emu appears. Actually maybe quite a bit longer than that.

What's there to emulate, really?
As far as I can see, after reading the specs, I don't really see the difference between the X-Box and a PC.

Ofcourse I have no idea on wich audiochipset it will have.
Or exactly HOW modified the GeForce3 Chip will be....

But in my eyes it looks just like PC....

So I really don't think (I'm probably wrong here, but what the heck...) there's any need for an emulator, unless you want tog run games on Mac or in Linux or something..... :)

The xbox is made of pc parts... but so are most of the new consoles today...

But xbox is more so than others... The thing that will make it easier than most emulators to emulate is the fact that it uses an x86 arcitecture processor rather than a risc processor.

(well, the p5 and above are emulators of the risc... x86 instructions are converted to risc, then processed, then converted back to x86)

One of the hardes parts in emulaton (from my experice) is converting the processor code to the proper format for the cpu to handle...

I belive that the xbox is going to be the easiest emulation project of all times... And maybe for my capstone (aka thesis project for thoes who dont attend a college with a university studies program) for my CS degree next year, i will write an emu for it...
