http://www.microsoft.com/getthefacts claims to provide this, but
somehow, I don't consider it a trusted source.  ;-)

Performance stats are always a nasty game - they are really only valid
for a particular OS/Hardware platform.  That said, I do have is this
very nice story and graph from ITWeek:



"Overall, it now performs 2.5 times faster than Windows Server 2003."

However, most people don't run Samba for graph-able performance
changes.  They run Samba because that's what fits their choice of
platforms, their need for stability, and immense flexibility.  The
performance boost is a very nice byproduct. ;-)
