On x86-64, which is what Piru runs QEMU on, AltiVec/VMX instructions are translated to AVX instructions (or to scalar instructions on old x86-64 CPUs that lack AVX).

In theory this should be possible with Book III-S CPU virtualized on Book III-S CPU (see comment #161). Some years ago, there were reports on POWER9 virtualizing G4 at 2 GHz
running Mac OS X. I'm not aware of anyone successfully running MorphOS or OS4 this way, though.
