Yes it does.
Only the Vertex 2 and (very recently) OWC get "full speed" firmware. The difference is mild to moderate depending on the test.
Basically, SF 1200 with full NON-hobbled firmware w/ MLC vs SF 1500 w/ MLC was almost no difference in as to make the SF 1500 "better" they gut the SF1200's IOPS performance. OCZ and OWC and maybe one or two others have paid for the privilege of getting the non crappy firmware. Sadly, Corsair has not.
