This wouldn't surprise me one bit, the original GC dev kits only ran about half speed and really only hit full speed almost at release of the machine. (But you have to have the new machines its not a software upgrade....)

lol the first dev kits wore only twice as powerful as the ps3 but it was made clear that they were far from final
