I think the main limitation with shutter speed using flash with a global shutter (or leaf shutter for that matter) would be flash duration, which depends on the flash "power" setting. I have measured my Godox flash to have a full power t0.5 flash duration of about 1.5 msec (1/660 sec) and half power duration of about 0.5msec (1/2000 sec). To get maximum exposure from the flash, the shutter speed needs to be slow enough to remain open for the duration the flash.
