I was thinking a lot about this proccesor.What do you guys think?Will it emulate psx games at a decent speed,or even emulate ps2 games.What about the OS emulator Bochs?Will it run Win95 at a decent speed or even another OS like Win2000?What do you guys think

Probably the last thing i'd want to run on an iPad is Win95..
Are we talking about the same Win95? You know the one that Microsoft released and was a great success...NOT

If the code is all sorted for a decent PSX emulator, this iPad should be able to emulate it well. As far as PS2, no chance.

Windows 95 and 2000 were designed to run on~200MHZ single core processors with 64MB of RAM. The A5 is a 1.2GHZ dual core. It would probably run windows 7 smoothly if you put it in a laptop (and were crazy).

ARM is not x86. It's hard to compare them. I'd imagine it would run Win 2000 and probably XP pretty well though. Vista and 7, not so much.

huge success...don't know what that other guy meant by that...
I have no idea either. Windows 95 was a huge success. It went mainstream in the business world. I remember people waiting in line for it to go on sale at midnight. Long before Apple had that kind of following. :D
