There is a reason IBM Mainframes have slow cpus: they double check calculations I heard.

Yes. And no (AFAIK).
They do run the same instruction on two different units and compare.
That has implications on how much exotics you can do to out-of-order and suchlike, plus the instruction set is old and archaic. Which results in less opportunities to become speed demons. They take a lot back in having an IO interface definition that can be co-processor accelerated.
