Thanks to the open-source Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org, there's already many benchmarks of the new quad-core Raspberry Pi 2.

While I don't yet have my hands on a quad-core Cortex-A7 Raspberry Pi 2 board, there's already many running benchmarks with it using our open-source automated testing software. Some of the shared RPi2 benchmarks done by the community include:

1502103-KWAR-140722031 - A comparison of the Raspberry Pi B, Raspberry Pi B+, and Raspberry Pi 2.

1502091-LI-RPI29666253 - Raspbian with various tests.

1502110-LI-RASPBERRY41 - The Raspberry Pi 2 with Debian GNU/Linux 8 Jessie.

1502113-LI-TEST1010676 - The Raspberry Pi 2 with Arch Linux.

1502110-LI-RASPBERRY41 - The Raspberry Pi 2 overclocked to 1075MHz.

There's also other Raspberry Pi 2 benchmarks on OpenBenchmarking.org if searching for BCM2709.

To see how your own x86/ARM Linux systems compare to any of these test results, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark THE-OPEN-BENCHMARK-ID as shown above.
