Now, 733 MHz was top of the line back in 2001....
Hardly... by the time the Xbox was released, the P4 architecture was off of stop-gap mode and running at the better-performing 2.0 GHz level that clearly outperformed the old PIII cores. The Athlon Thunderbird processors had beat out the old PIII cores months before that.

The 733 MHz was probably closer to top of the line back when the final design decisions were being made, not when the XBox was released. From the perspective of Xbox-as-PC, the Xbox was pretty badly obsoleted the day it hit store shelves.
