Summary 03040: soulclbr and clones: Game speed issue
Description Soul Calibur, like other namcos12.c games, has two video modes; you can select them by entering "display test" in the test menu.

If you play using the default "non interlace" mode, the game runs way too fast at 100% emulation speed; i'd say it goes twice the normal speed.
If you use the visually better "interlace" mode, the game is instead much slower than normal (again, assuming you reach 100%).

The issue seems to concern Soul Calibur only, as other Namco System 12 games (like Tekken 3) run at proper speed using both video options.
