The private URL in this bug report shows that Maria is 3-10 times than MyISAM in some internal benchmarks.
This bug stays "Open" and not "Verified" because we will need to look at each subtest of the benchmark to see if the slowdown is expected or not.
For example, a write-only benchmark will always be much slower for Maria because Maria has logging (unless CREATE TABLE TRANSACTIONAL=0), which writes to log for every data/index change and syncs this log to disk at the end of every statement.
That would be a case of "not a bug".
On the other hand, a significant slowdown in read-only benchmark can be a bug in Maria.
We will probably have to pick a few subtests, study them, fix any bugs, and then re-run the entire benchmark for comparison (many tests could have the same cause).

How to repeat:
run benchmarks.
