That is true. No attempt is made at mimicking the original CPU speed.

However this does cause problems for some I/O devices. In some
cases, extra code has gone into working through situations in which
an OS makes implicit assumptions about how quickly an I/O operation
will complete. Sometimes SIMH executes these too quickly and much
fun ensues.
