Shuriken can be faster or slower then the old system depending on how you use it.
Believe me, the temptation is there, with the massive increase in power and control, to just go all out and blow 15 of the 16 available milliseconds on particle effect because you can.
However, with said great power comes great responsibility, and thankfully it's easy to trim the effects into something that looks fantastic, but with significant speed gains over the (now called) legacy system.
