...because RHEL and CentOS are not really that identical. They are just
binary-compilant.

RHEL has better performance than CentOS -- I guess it is the compiler
options that Red Hat is using while compiling their RPMs.

I have performed a test using OSDL test suite a few months ago on a
system that has:

* 8 x86_64 CPUs @ 3200.263
* 16 Gigabytes of RAM
* PostgreSQL 8.1.5 (PGDG packages)

and RHEL performed much better than CentOS.
