The proper interpretation of the passage is that it performs as

It's hard to say it performs better when these features never existed
in previous generations. What are you comparing these features to?
Right now you can only make comparisons against images reduced in
resolution during post-processing.

Yes, and that is what the features are being compared to. The claim is obvously that in challenging light conditions the Fuji gives better performance than you would get by downsizing to 6 MP in post-processing.

But really...if you want a 6MP camera you don't have to wait...just
buy a Nikon D40 now.

A doubly silly comment:

1. The Fuji is both a 6 and a 12 megapixel camera depending on circumstances.

2. The D40 is doubtless a fine choice for many purposes, but people buy compact cameras for a reason (just as people buy DSLRs for a reason); a D40 is not a substitute for a compact for some purposes.
