Because those numbers belong to a parallel request test they depend a lot on your hardware and are thus quite missleading.

I now run all tests with sequential requests which are better and more reliable indication of what is going on. Expect at least 1/20th of those numbers when running sequential without output caching (aprox 15RPS) and more or less unchanged with output caching (just a guess).

To get the fastest RPS out of Drupal without any external system, turn on page caching and use this in your settings.php:

$conf['page_cache_without_database'] = TRUE;

$conf['page_cache_invoke_hooks'] = FALSE;

Then route the page cache directly to Wincache. That is the fastest you could ever get, because that's in-memory page caching with minimal bootstraping. If your site is big then use Couchbase as the storage backend for page cache.
