None of that changes that fact that the machine is a 13 year old design, with a I/O and memory speeds which stuck at the speed they were 13 years ago. The StrongARM gave a massive speed boost for the typical small RISC OS C or BASIC program, but is massively compromised by the slow memory and I/O when running applications like Firefox.
Both the Iyonix and A9 have massively faster memory and I/O, and significantly more processor power and only just run such a large and complex application at a reasonable speed, so older machines don't stand a chance, and no amount of wishing or whining is going to change that.
