There's a difference between software and hardware emulation.
Nintendo I believe use Hardware emulation.
Fair enough. I'm not going to pretend I understand.
There's no hardware emulation involved in any of this.
The CPU in the 3DS is more advanced than the one in the PSP of course, the 3DS also has a lot more memory...however when it comes to this kind of emulation the more advanced CPU in the 3DS probably doesn't provide much of a benefit.
Probably the difference comes down to either the PSP having slightly more raw horsepower despite being an older less advanced processor, or it could just be that the emulation available on PSP is basically making better use of the power the PSP has. With the 3DS emulation being official certain things have to take resources away from the emulator running the game, presumably not a factor in homebrew PSP emulators.
