Are any figures possible for the maxima? or will depend on how much further one can optimize.

You can calculate theoretical speedup by carefully counting clock cycles
for a particular CPU for two implementations (per DES encryption
performed), but then, if done right, it's the same as actually running
the two implementations and comparing actual speeds.  In fact, the
speedup numbers in Eli Biham's paper were from actually running the code
on a particular Alpha CPU.
