2700 Data transfer speed

We are using the 2700 with the highest possible measure rate as set up in
The total data transfer time is mentioned as 10 seconds which we could verify.
Where is that long time coming from ? The GPIB can transfer 1 MByte/s.
Is there a way for improvement and how well is the 2701 in that respect ?

The integra series datasheet page 2 has communications rates for measurements for various scenarios.

The fastest data will be over GPIB. Readings per second maximum is 2000/second for the model 2700.

The 1MB/s is a maximum of the protocol and not the data rate you will achieve in normal operation of the instrument.
