Presumably the TOS board is required for the faster ROM access, so it's not an option but required if you want the v1.5 in your STE?

It's possible to see a video to compare STe 32Mhz and 8Mhz? (with a game or other prg)

Yes, just checked it came out close to 200% which is what you would expect with the integer division. It should now be ~400%, not 148%?
EDIT: I think you've got your images mixed up or something? If I look at the images on the post before those show 364% I think which is about right.

Well, yes it is different code and it should spend a decent proportion of its time doing division and less time on the bus. However the 148% figure looks a bit suss to me, for 32mhz. It shouldn't be 400% for sure, but 148... does look on the low side IMO. Probably worth a second look to see whats going on there...
