If you are running Linux, then of course that one is faster.

However, if you are running FreeBSD, then you already know that it is
faster.

*grin*

I am not aware of any controlled tests done to compare the two wrt
PostgreSQL. So the starting hypothesis *must* be that they are both
equivalent in speed on the same hardware. Any differences would be at
the OS level, and it would be difficult to go from a list of
architectural or implementation differences to a claim for speed
superiority, without realistic testing.
