A more interesting benchmark would have measured how many resources
were spent on the caching server vs the client. I'm guessing with
MySQL the server put a lot more effort in where with memcached more
work was done on the client. (In most cases the "client" is a lot
easier to scale than the "server").
Also: Even with InnoDB then MySQL will slow down in "real usage" with
both reads and writes.
In other words: I don't think your test reflected real world
performance very well.
