[CentOS-virt] Silly question about KVM

I was wondering, if I do not have hardware that natively supports full 
virtualization...and I choose to use KVM, will my VMs be running in some 
form of chip emulation (and therefore terribly slow).  To date, I've been 
using Xen and am very comfortable with it.  I have some fears that later 
whenever Xen is dropped - I'll have to consider KVM.

Also, will Xen be carried forward should Xen be dropped from RHEL?
