On my Windows XP system, for Mathematica 6, the plain ASCII text file 
called

Benchmarking.m

located in the directory

C:\Program Files\Wolfram 
Research\Mathematica\6.0\AddOns\Packages\Benchmarking

contains the code for the problems under the section header "Benchmark 
Tests" (roughly the last third of the file). Look for the function 
called *benchmarktests*.

for Mathematica 5.2, the plain ASCII text file called

Benchmark.m

located in the directory

C:\Program Files\Wolfram 
Research\Mathematica\5.2\AddOns\StandardPackages\Utilities

contains the code for the problems under the section header "Benchmark 
Tests" (roughly the last third of the file). Look for the function 
called *benchmarktests*.
