Heavy slowdown in Metal Gear Solid

This isnt related to sound but the gameplay speed. The framerate counter says 60 constantly but it seems to go into slowmotion almost randomly. I have tried the game with and without the widescreen hack and nothing seems to help. What can I do to solve this? The problem also happens with Tekken 3, it just randomly slows down but the framerate counter doesnt drop.

Also Id like to say thank you to the developers, I really hope the emulator gets more exposure as playing PSone games in widescreen is a dream come true.

If I recall, MGS was infamous for having a ton of slowdown even on the real console (not surprising, given it pushed the hardware's limitations). If the emulation speed remains at 60FPS, then in all likelihood there is nothing actually wrong with the emulation. That's just MGS being MGS.

I tried it on a different emulator and it doesnt slowdown anywhere near as much. I also tried Software graphics plug-in and no help either.
