Zup: In PCem window click in the option menu Misc->Machine, and in the Machine window select Speed history. The 100% mark corresponds to the second line from top in the graph. Start a machine with a Pentium CPU and check in the graph which is the fastest emulated CPU that never goes below 100%.

In my case, I get a 100% booting up MS-DOS 6.22 and some drops below 100% in Windows 95C with a Pentium 75 MHz.

Host machine:
myria 8306 laptop (rebranded no-name toy, sold under many names)
Passively cooled Apollo Lake Celeron N3350@1.1 Ghz
4 GB RAM @800Mhz
32 GB slow EMMC
Windows 10

Fastest guest I could run (never dropped below 95% and ran at 100% for most of the time) with the poor Celeron boosting to about 1.5 Ghz:
AMI 486 Clone
486SX @16Mhz
Phoenix S3 Trio
Windows 95
no recompiler

With the recompiler turned on I was able to push the emulated cpu to 486DX@33Mhz but I couldn't install Windows (errors in SUWIN.DLL and other dll's) so I disabled it.
