There is no emulation, its a port by rockstar games so its using the original source code from pc version. It doesnt just depend on the CPU for lag, a lot of the reason for the lag would be the GPU and a ps2 game can put a big damn load on a mobile GPU, If you havent noticed a lot of the textures are on much lower quality than the PS2 and PC version, I have GTA3 on my Galaxy Nexus as well, though and it runs fine for me. make sure you havent got any apps or unnecessary processes running in the background then try again.
