look in pkgsrc/benchmarks and take your pick... start with lmbench,

performance between architectures are going to vary widely depending on
application.  there are applications for which my 12.5MHz R2000-based
pmin beats an intel box running at twice the clock rate.  likewise my
3000/400 alpha (125MHz(?) 21064) can hold its own with a 200MHz K6 in
certain circumstances.
