the 900% is available with a building (along with all 3 techs), and I believe that building is only available to carbon-based life (it is the tech right before the final speed boost which provides the building). I could be wrong, I haven't researched it much, but by memory, Aquatics, Silicates, and Synthetics do not have this building available in that tech.
EDIT: I am wrong about Silicates, they do indeed have the building.
the tech is Dimensional Fatigue (the penultimate tech on the hyperspeed path), the building is the Dimensional Observatory.
I'm certain that Aquatics do not get this building, and pretty sure that Synthetics also do not.
