I recently ran a series of benchmarks on my collection of Raspberry Pi's to see what I had to work with for upcoming projects.  CPU, I/O and browser benchmarks below were completed on RPI Zero, V1 Model B, V2 Model B, V3 Model B and V3 Model B+.  Results/comparisons may be useful to others.

Config and Tools

Simple test - booted/ran a series of benchmarks on all RaspberryPis using the same SD card and power supply.  Card was loaded with the latest version of Raspbian plus a couple of common profiling and benchmarking tools.  Setup notes:
