I presume this is with journal=ordered. Try with journel=writeback.
I've seen benchmarks which suggest it can be close to the speed of ext2.

The system bus isn't a limiting factor is it? 64-bit PCI-X will get

Can your disks sustain that much bandwidth? 10 striped drives might get
better than 200MB/s if done right, I suppose.
It might make sense to test raw writes to a device with dd and see if
that gets comparable performance figures - I'll just try that myself
write throughput to EVA 8000 (8GB write cache), host DL380 with 2x2Gb/s
HBAs, 2GB RAM
testing 4GB files:
on filesystems: bonnie++ -d /mnt/tmp -s 4g -f -n 0 -u root
ext3: 129MB/s sd=0.43
