There are two settings: "screen blanking" and slow mode. In fast mode, the screen can be enabled or disabled. When it is disabled, there are 2*57-5 cycles per line available for the processor. 5 cycles are slow ones, since those are memory refresh cycles. When the screen is enabled, the cycles not required for TED memory accesses are fast cycles. This is more intelligent than the 2MHz mode on the C128, since the screen won't be garbled. I think that you could blank the screen and use either the fast mode and take the memory refresh cycles into consideration, or the slow mode and use the cycles sparingly. The PAL C64 runs at 17734472/18 Hz, while the PAL C16 clocks at 17734472/20 Hz (or /10 in fast mode). For NTSC machines, these figures are 14318181/14 and 14318181/16 (or was it /18?).
