Hopefully this will give some idea of the relative speeds with and without the booster and blitter.

Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..

Just for completeness I ran Gembench on my stock STE with 4MB RAM and TOS 2.06, and saved the results. I then ran Gembench with those defaults on my 32mhz boosted STE. RAM and TOS were the same.

Results below, with and without Blitter.

Without Blitter:

Oddly running the CPU from its own 32MHz oscillator gives integer division a 16% boost in speed :shrug:
