Yes, and if the ramdisk is unallocated the throughput tests on my machine also give ~9G/s throughput.  Can you please double check that it's allocated.  eg, are you running all the tests on the same ram disk?  If you run the thin test first and then the raw test does the raw performance change?

Well memory performance will have an effect.  But I'd expect your
number to be consistent with mine.
