they have the hardware while emulators don't Laugh (the problem is trying to emulate 7 different cpus on a cpu (that might be 2 or 4 cores) Smile)

You might read this for a better idea of what pcsx2 has to cope with:

Short answer: PS2 games were made to work on one set of hardware. Those titles were designed specifically around that hardware.

Your PC is not a PS2, so it has to put a lot of work into trying to be one.

While a suped-up corvette might have a stronger engine than a beaten-up old tow truck, it's not as suited at pulling cars.

A slightly better short answer is that console processors work very differently from PC processors and rarely follow the same instructions and coding. Plus, the emulator works by having your single PC processor do the work of several different hardware pieces in the PS2
