S3 slow - can it get faster

hi, i'm considering to buy a S3, but my major objection to it is its write speed and time to empty the buffer... i tried it in ashop once, and it could only shoot 3 shots in raw, then had to purge the buffer for what seemed ages...

is this purely a technical limitation, or can it in future firmwares be made a bit faster maybe?

what is a reason this camera is so slow in writing files to card, while for example a d70 can do it twice as fast? so the technology exists, what is the reason the S3 doesnt use it???
