But they were going from slower to faster CPUs.

Going the other way is madness, doubling down on disappointment: first with a slower CPU and then with emulation.

If you want to run arm and x86 together, find some add arm to an x86 chip package and find some way to freeze/thaw data when you power each chipset on/off so you can share data quickly or not at all.
