Snes9x faster than fxpak pro?

Hey guys like the Name of the Thread says, I want to know if roms are running faster on snes9x than fxpak pro without changing any configurations before...I tested invictus on both and it seems that its a bit faster on emulator...but maybe I'm wrong
It probably is. Since PCs are generally much faster than a SNES, Snes9x has to manually throttle its own speed to roughly emulate the speed of the SNES, but this probably isn't a perfect process and it's not unlikely that the emulator still outperforms a real SNES. Maybe BSNES does a better job at this, since it's generally the more accurate emulator, but it's still not guranteed to do a perfect job. Only playing on the actual SNES will give fully accurate results.

Thanks for response,so I'm just wondering if you can compete speedruns on emulator and original snes...
Well, you can. You can do pretty much whatever you want. I guess your actual question is "would these speedruns be accepted", and the answer to that is "it depends". From what I know, every single game pretty much has its own set of rules on what is and isn't allowed in a speedrun, decided by the respective community speedrunning that game. Often times there are even separate speedrunning categories depending on wether you're playing in an emulator or not. So in short, it's something that you'll have to figure out on a game-by-game basis. I think most commonly speedrunned games either allow emulators or have a dedicated category for emulated runs.

Just a good example of this is SMW itself where there are limitations on which emulators can be used, its pretty much none, but 11-exit is limited to exclude certain emulators. So not only is it per game like RPG Hacker said it can be down to what type of run you are doing.
