See this answer.

My 2 cents:
I don't see any benefit in it anyway since the CPU emulation will bottleneck the point of that. It's also not as easy to adapt register-level 3dfx emulation to hardware acceleration (and if any API that should do it that way, it's better off with Vulkan)

The 3dfx recompiler is already really freaking fast at the point where I don't have any desire for hardware accelerated 3dfx emulation either. It's better off that way for the sake of emulated timing anyhow. I actually do enjoy seeing the emulated framerate drop while the Voodoo chokes on blending functions, something no other 3dfx emulator/wrapper has done up to this point. timing is everything
