Who says it isn't? Phoronix provided basically no information on their
tests, for all we know they may not be statistically significant.
They tested on a SSD, are you using an SSD? If not the results may be
totally inapplicable. Also— did they fully reinitilize the SSD between
runs? Or are some of the file systems suffering from the expected SSD
loss of performance?
