The winner doesn't surprise me. From my experience, drives based on Matshita/Panasonic (+102 in Accuraterip's list) chipset have superb error correction and good interpolation capabilites. I have a pair of badly pressed CD, very, very hard to rip properly in a lot of drives (Tested in drives based on Renesas, Mediatek, NEC). However, ripping such CDs is a piece of cake in a old Hitachi-LG slim DVD-ROM based on Panasonic chipset.

New sheriff in town?

Notably, Matshita has three drives in top 7. UJ-812, 852 and 85J. Are they technically the same?

That wouldn't help the AccurateRip statistics. Besides, since interpolation occurs when music is actually missing, it is hard to improve over naive averaging.
However, interpolation artifacts may be less audible (or less annoying) simply because there is more correct to begin with, and less guesswork to do, and I would put my money on that explanation.
