Gabriele: my guess is that, because the puzzles in "Made in China" are quite far away from classics, and have relatively few distinct puzzle types for such a long round, the authors have provided way more puzzles than can be completed (by mere mortals at least) in the 90 minutes, so that most of us will be able to choose what types of puzzles we wish to work on and still aim for roughly the same amount of points per minute as in other rounds.

In other terms: if you expect to barely finish the other rounds in the allotted time, expect to be able to get a score of roughly 900 on this round, and it's ok if you are completely incompetent a., for instance, Mahjongg Mazes because there are enough puzzles of other types.
