Performance comparison of svnrdump and svnsync

I thought I recalled when svnrdump was first created that there were some
timing comparisons made with svnsync that showed it to be faster at doing a
full dump/sync of a remote repository. When I test via HTTP:

svnrdump dump http://server/repos | svnadmin load repos

And compare this to an equivalent svnsync, I find that the times it takes to
do this is essentially the same. I then compared the HTTP access logs of
the server and see that the two commands produce identical logs, so
obviously there are not going to be big performance differences.

Am I missing something? I realize that svnrdump still fulfills a need, so I
am not questioning the value of the tool. Just questioning whether my
results make sense. As I see it, for this specific scenario, someone would
be better off to still simply use svnsync for this purpose.
