Early vector games that didn't use the Amiga hardware properly, the ST was indeed slightly faster, though it is negligible that you'd actually instantly see the difference.

As more titles started to lead on Amiga, so the blitter was used for filling, and I can assure you, using the CPU for drawing and blitter for filling was faster than just using the CPU on the ST.

As for Epic being faster on ST, i'm not sure thats true. By then, DID were leading on Amiga.

Only way Epic is faster on ST is if the Amiga is using 5 bitplanes and the ST is only using 4.
