Bearing in mind that the RPC was designed for the 50odd MHz ARM8, the fact that it's scaled to a 300MHz StrongARM is fairly good going, I'd say. Given that you don't get the best performance out of a StrongARM in a RPC, what's the point in putting a potentially faster ARM9 chip in there instead? Additionally, where's the commercial incentive to do so? RPCs aren't being made any more (due to lack of available parts).
