No, that's called "under development". Unless you can point out
some inherent, not-fixable, thing which make it slow.

H.264 certainly isn't a joke even though JM requires much, much
more powerful CPU than 10 GHz for realtime
(at least for encoding--haven't tested decoding but it isnt fast either)

Besides, even 10 GHz requirements would be OK if it compresses
superiorly. It just would need couple of years waiting...
