If I understand your question, you're saying that RDBMs do benchmark
faster using a native filesystems rather than rolling their own on
a partition, and you're wondering why ... I would have to hazard a
guess that the operating system disk cache and buffers are coming
into play when you're using a native filesystem, but there's no
caching when a "raw" partition is used.
