I know that with LNR set to zero in ACR, I see tons and tons of what I expect - tight dots that look like luminance noise. With DPP set to zero, I see blotchyness that looks like LNR has been performed

Comparison with both products set to zero, sharpening off

Comparison with DPP LNR set to zero, ACR LNR set to 20, detail to 100. Obviously not exactly the same since it's different algorithms, but the ACR shot starts to take on the same kind of character, which says to me that the reason DPP shows "less noise" in conversions is because it's impossible to set it to not do LNR, not because it knows more about the RAW file and can do some kind of sensor based magic.

How does the sharpness in areas of detail compare between DPP with noise reduction off and ACR LNR set to 20?
