Significant checkout performance degradation between 1.6.1 and 1.7b2

I've recently picked up the subversion 1.7 beta 2 build (included in the latest TortoiseSVN beta) and did a checkout of our solution (~10,000 files, ~2,000 folders, ~180MB).
Is this performance degradation inherent with the use of the centralized SVN information, and thus an intentional tradeoff for the blazing fast Commits/Updates?
Interestingly, it looks like the export speed also degraded. With Subversion 1.6 it took about 90 seconds, with Subversion 1.7, it now takes 110 seconds.
