Your examples show clearly that there cannot be one overall benchmark.

Exactly. In order for a benchmark to be meaningful, it has to reflect the type of work you typically do. For surveyors, pilots and some others transcendental functions would be of great importance. For gamers, integer functions might be more relevant. It's important to find benchmarks that test your own real-world scenarios.
