The D90 beats the D300 in noise

I guess D300 owners see this as an affront, but the D90 beats the D300 in noise, at ISO 200, but particularly at ISO 1600.

It is a schame, that Nikon crippled the D90 with 12bit, lossy raw recording, but who would buy the D300 if the D90 had every feature, which does not cost a cent?

I compiled a serie of screen captures in a TIFF file demonstrating the difference:

However, I have not written a detailed explanation yet.

Btw, Rawnalyze now supports the D90 NEF files as well:
