Network performance of nForce2 chipset based NIC

We have recorded really bad latency timings on this type of hardware 

The latency (with the nvnet.o driver from NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248) is 
about five times larger than what we obtain using a standard 3C905 NIC.

Has anyone else seen this? And has hints on how to improve the performance?
