I'm not sure anyone can directly answer your question about a head-to-head comparison for speed or other performance.

Each computer is unique.
If a computer user has the means to benchmark and measure and compare TB vs. FM on his/her computer, the results may or may not be applicable to another user's system.
And the differences are likely to be so small as to be either undetectable or at least minimally significant from an operational standpoint.
As mentioned, both FM and TB would likely perform quite well on a modern computer robust enough to run Windows 8.

As for bloat, I really could not say. There will always be a balance between "requested features" for some users and "bloat" in the eyes of others. I do not personally find TB to be bloated, although I do not use some of the available features. It has always done what I need it to do, no muss and no fuss.

All of this is pretty much hypothetical unless/until you would actually try either FM or TB or both on your system.

I'll bow out, leaving the discussion to others more facile with FM.
If you decide to give TB another try, I'll be happy to try to assist you with that, if needed.
