Different hardware shows different results.
Now here is a pretty interesting test that was done by the guys at CNET, benchmarking the latest stable versions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.
What is interesting however is the fact that they tested them on two different laptops: Dell XPS 13, which costs $1,299 and includes the latest Intel Core i5 CPU as well as the entry level Surface 3 for $499 with Intel Atom processor.
Now, while I was expecting pretty much same results on both machines, that was not exactly the case, just take a look at the following charts:
As it turns out. Chrome and Edge scales differently on the low and high end hardware.
All in all, both browsers are pretty equal when it comes to the synthetic benchmarks. However, keeping in mind that Edge does not support extensions and some of the basic features, the choice is pretty obvious here, at least for the majorit of people.
