Frankly,.... haven't seen any.  And haven't seen any serious performance IMPROVEMENT since 97.  Just new features and more need for RAM and HD space.

One of my assignments as a database developer began with the REQUIREMENT from the committant to use Access 2000, and eventually ended up using Access 2003. Didn't run any benchmarks, but I can tell you that even if the application was quite big I didn't notice any performance variation between the two platforms. Luckily, no compatibilty issues arised either.
