Subjectprocessor speed differences? Reply to this message

I've got MAME running on my T-Mobile; however, speed definitely seems to be an issue with a bunch of the ROMs. Is there a specific set of options to change to speed the ROMs up? For example, Galaga says its running at around 8 out of 60 frames per sec; it's also a bit worse when you turn the sound on. So is this a difference because of the 206Mhz StrongARM processor the T-Mobile has, or is simple the translation/emulation that gives the extra overhead? Do people with the new 400Mhz Xscale processor experience the same? On my desktop, everything plays at the correct speed, and I know the 206Mhz processor in the T-Mobile is far faster than the old sys boards the original games had. So does anyone know what gives?
