Wow Myths: Old mogs make you move faster?

General Discussion
I don't have the best computer out there but it gets the job done. I have observed that when I am in a "old school" mog my char feels faster.

Now this could be just a myth, or a trick to the eye or an actual ease on my computer. I am not sure.

So I am asking the people of WOW to try it out for a few days and see if you observe this faster movement and responce times as well.
Server-wise it's the same speed, I suppose it could appear faster/slower depending on frame rate, which newer gear kills without a decent processor and/or graphics card.
It's an illusion depending on how padded/slim the xmog is. Like when you put on a shield you feel you're running slower.

This. The newer the armor, the more polygons, the more polygons, the more your computer has to work to handle it.
