Title
(EN) SELECTIVE ACCELERATION OF EMULATION
Abstract
(EN)

Selective acceleration of emulation of programs written for a legacy computer system on a more modern computer system is disclosed. The host system processes emulated program assets that are synchronized with host outputs. When a reduced need for synchronization between the emulated program assets and a host output is detected, synchronization of processing of emulated program assets and the host output is unlocked and the host system accelerates processing of the emulated program assets for which the synchronization has been unlocked.
