I still don't understand why Hatari is so slow in that emulation. For 
comparison, Aranym uses a similar cpu core for the emulation (yes i know its a 
much older version, maybe more comparable to Hatari old uae cpu core). In 
comparison to Hatari, it does not do any cycle counting, so basically it is 
running in fast-forward mode all the time. In this mode, on an I7 cpu,without 
JIT, it is able to run about  10 times as fast  as a 32Mhz Falcon. So 
essentially, only 10% of the cpu power is needed to achieve the speed of 
32Mhz. I cannot believe that Hatari needs 90% of the hosts cpu power to count
