Many of them are. 

Others are just economies of scale. Consider disdk formatting. If you look
at MB/S then today's drives are MUCH faster.  If yuou look at "how long does
it take to format this new drive", then the answer is about the same.

In this case it is a pure hardware/physics issue...

[3 drives formatted...2 to go...then the install]
