Gaming does the XBOX One use actual 360 hardware for backwards compatibility?

on the xbox one, is backwards compatibility achieved using actual 360 hardware-on-a-chip or is all of that actually emulated using software? i assumed its software based since 360 games seems to run a tad bit slower on the xbox one, but maybe its just me.

thanks for the help.

The Xbox360 mode ist emulated on the Xbox one, that’s why the compatibility isn’t 100% and also why expansions like microphones or guitars doesn’t work on the Xbox360 mode

thanks again for the help!
