I get a feeling of that the 1.3 Alpha ha a lower throughput than earlier versions, I know, this is an Alpha. I use an Intel DQ965GF board with built in 1000Mbps NIC used as WAN, 2 Intel 1000Mbps NIC as LAN and OPT1, 3Ghz, 512MB RAM and the system is installed on a USB Flash disk.

It uses the exact same base OS as 1.2.1, FreeBSD 7.0, which is significantly faster than the base OS used in 1.2 release (6.2). Unless you can specifically quantify something, I very, very seriously doubt if this is the case. Network performance isn't related in any fashion to the pfSense code, that's entirely from the base OS. FreeBSD 7.0 has a number of network stack and driver improvements that significantly increase thoughput capacity.

There was a brief period where developer kernels where included as opposed to the normal kernels which are considerably slower. Try updating again to be sure…
