Default Galaxy Nexus slower than SGS2 and IP4S

I'll probably get trolled for this but here i go.. Why post this on SGS2 general? Well, alot of people are saying Nexus prime is better than SGS2 so i thouhht of sharing this to you guys.. Not sure if this is official or not but for those who want to check it out you can click this link..

Courtesy of the loose lips of Japan’s leading cellular carrier, NTT DoCoMo, we now have the specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Prime). Software-wise, there are no surprises: it will run Android 4.0,*Ice Cream Sandwich , but on the hardware front… well, there’s no easy way to put this: the Galaxy Nexus has a lower spec than the iPhone 4S and Galaxy S II, and it’s even comparable to the Nexus S in terms of graphics power. (Updated @ 23:00 EST:*The following specs have now been confirmed by Samsung and Google.)

ICS doesn't look to be as optimized as you make it sound from the hands-on vids that have been posted; it stutters and lags more than the SGS2 does with touchwiz. Still I might buy it, but just because I'm tired of waiting for updates.

Default GPU

Apparently the Galaxy Nexus uses the SGX540, the same GPU as the Galaxy S (one). While the Galaxy S II uses the Mali-400 GPU which seems to be on a higher spec. O.o Wouldn't it be a fairly weak combination since the phone comes with a 720p display paired with a GPU more than a year old?
