Host machine:
Asus TUF A15 FA506IU with a Ryzen 7 4800H CPU

I was able to get a constant 99%-100% speed with this configuration - seems to be the fastest I can get without any drops in speed:
FIC VA-503+ / Pentium MMX 300 / 64 MB Ram / Diamond Stealth 3D 2000
Voodoo Graphics in SLI with 4Mb Frame-buffer memory, 4MB texture memory and all check-boxes enabled in it's settings page
Windows 98 SE

Last time I played Quake 2 at 800x600 with the 3dfx OpenGL driver enabled.

When I tried to use a faster CPU (like the K6-III+/500 for example), I noticed severe drops in emulation speed (down to 40%-50%) when accessing the disk (while loading Windows or starting up a game or loading a new map), then it jumps to 70%-80% (sometimes even 100% for short periods when the emulated machine was idle) until accessing the disk again.
