You're right. This is correct Topic for discussion.
Recently we did not publish a lot of MySQL vs PostgreSQL benchmarks
ourselves as one would barely trust MySQL publishing benchmarks about
MySQL vs something. Even if we try to be bias free it is still hard to
make people to believe. There are also various third party benchmarks
available I would guess searching on Google will be good idea.
Also make sure you're looking at benchmark which is relevant for your
load, otherwise it would not make much sense.
