IMO, I would say there may not be any "real" way to know.  If your stack has
any kind of visual component to it, then the capabilities of the graphics
cards can affect performance as well, or at least perceived performance.  If
your stack is processing only, then perhaps the systems may be close, but
someone else may have a better answer.
