So?  Look at just the UP scores then.  From the above page:
"UP performance on FreeBSD 7 is 2.6 times higher than dragonfly UP
performance and 1.8 times higher than freebsd 4 UP performance."

Please explain how DragonFly's lack of SMP affects the UP performance?

Also, from an end user perspective, you can hardly get a computer
these days that only has one core.  SMP performance is very relevant
from that perspective.
