poor X performance

Hi all,

working with debian-ppc for some months now I'm very happy with it
but one thing is still not understood:
Why is the performance (display speed) of the X window system so poor
on the powerpc?
My machine is a G3 and scrolling in xterm window (vi, less, etc.) is
incredibly slow (about 3 updates per second). Comparing the results of
x11perf with the ones obtained on my old Intel 486DX100 shows
a 100-times slower displaying speed.
Can anyone explain me why this is so and how to improve performance
(if possible at all).



PS: I use xfree3.3.3.1-0.2
