If its x86 emulation is enough to properly run protected programs (including game anti-cheats etc.) then it's also enough to "properly" run x86 viruses.There are no (or virtually no) viruses developed for the proprietary VLIW architecture.
Only Fred (AKA "Crusoe"). Astro, sorry, "Efficeon" and "Efficeon 2" were both 256-bit VLIW, but instructions had variable length encoding to avoid the bloat. There was some connection between Transmeta and Elbrus, but I don't know the full story. I know they worked on the FPU for Crusoe.They forgot to mention Transmeta. Their CPUs were also using a 128-bit VLIW architecture running their CMS x86 emulation code.
