Okay, I so followed your link and picked this one from the search results:

So that's 2013, and clearly tons of good work has gone into producing
the slide deck.

However, it's a 4-core machine he used.  It seems to me that this

there a better, more recent benchmark from FreeBSD with a more
comparable machine?
