They have tried to slow NFS down by bolting more on (such as TCP), but it is still far faster, and they are bolting stuff on at a slower rate than CIFS. If NFS is slower something is broken. It may be a case of NFS being faster because it does less, but if it does enough that isn't usually a problem.
