No, the existing data indicates no such thing. When they upgrade they
will have the *same* throughput as before. The datapoints you indicate
that there's an increase in latency, but it's there while processing
several time as much data! The highest throughput of set 2 is 3223,
while the highest for set 4 is 14145.
To get interesting latency comparison you'd need to use pgbench --rate
and use a rate *both* versions can sustain.
