As you know, I've been lucky enough to own both
Yes the Blizzard is a little quicker than the Apollo for really demanding games but there's not much in it.
I wish I'd kept my Apollo, it would have been interesting to see if it could have gone all the way up to 100Mhz

It could be your HD transfer rate, Quake 2 moves a lot of data around (even during the game). What kind of HD speed are you getting in SysSpeed?
You should download my 80Mhz Apollo SysSpeed module from AmiNet and do a comparison with your system to see what's different.
Update: Just had a thought, also check your AHI settings (see the AmiQuake 2 readme for details)
