In general, emulated devices have lower performance than devices exposed via pass-through, and the paravirtualization approach tends to have sufficient performance.
“SierraVisor provides affordable, high-performance paravirtualization for ARM-based hardware developers,” said Gopu Subramanian, CTO of Sierraware.
An alternative to full virtualization with hardware assist is provided by paravirtualization. In paravirtualization, the operating system is modified so that it "understands" that it is running in a virtual machine.
An emulation of the underlying raw hardware can be used (so called Type 1 a 2 hypervisors (Hypervisor on Wikipedia.com, 2007)) as well as some form of paravirtualization (Pralavirtualization on Wikipedia.com, 2007).
