    $\begingroup$ Try on your problems and you'll see. The benchmarks can give some clues, but they might not reflect the behavior on specific problems. In particular since many solvers base their developments on these benchmarks $\endgroup$

I think the performance for different solvers depends on your problems structure. Maybe some of specific problems will lead better performance for that solver.

In general, in my opinion, both of them not far away.

So, if you would like to choose one of them be your solver to solve problem, you can depends on your modelling skills. For example, if you are good at python, I would recommend you choose gurobi, since that have big community discuss some technical issues.
