In either case, that's quite slow. Over a single Gb link I've been able to get around 850 megabit of throughput on the initial sync.

You have a bottle-neck somewhere; I doubt it's in DRBD. Have you verified that your disks and / or network can achieve any more throughput than you describe? The DRBD docs include some basic disk throughput tests. iperf is great for testing network throughput. -Ben
