The old benchmark suite is long out of date. Unless you're planning hardware purchases, the usual thing of actual interest is how fast your actual simulation systems of interest run on your actual hardware, and you are best placed to gather that data. :-) An external benchmark might be nice, but chances are there's so much difference between what it tested and what you need, that any conclusions would need a big grain of salt, and you'd still have to go and test for yourself...
