I know there have been comparisons done in the past, but I don't know
where any of them are off the top of my head.

In short though, if you're on a local network Perforce will likely be
faster for many operations, because it stores lots of state server
side and thus doesn't need to crawl the working copy to figure out
what has changed. That said, its lack of client side pristine copies
of files means it can't easily send diffs to the server when
committing, which could slow it down. It'll also probably perform
worse over a WAN due to the fact that it needs to talk to the server
for just about anything you want to do.
