Tekken 3 and Soul Calibur run on original Playstation hardware, which is fairly cheap to emulate. MK4's "Zeus" 3D chip is more capable and takes more power to emulate.

That's your major issue - emulation leans heavily on single-core performance and AMD optimizes for multicore these days. An Intel CPU at 4.1 GHz would run MK4 no trouble at all.
