No Im sure they threw in some freakly complex shaders to strain the cards. The instruction limit for regular ps2.0 isnt that high at all and even ps2.0a has a greatly higher instruction limit. Im sure anything run in Ps2.0 is multipass while everything from ps2.0a and up can be run in a single pass.
