With the imminent release of Linux Mint 17 "Qiana", here are some new benchmarks of the Linux Mint 17 release candidate compared to the past four stable releases of the Ubuntu-based distribution: Linux Mint 16, Linux Mint 15, Linux Mint 14, and Linux Mint 13 while all are running the Cinnamon Desktop Environment.

Benchmarking across all five releases of Linux Mint was done using the Phoronix Test Suite open-source benchmarking software.
