I'd expect that nilfs continues to win postmark. Btrfs splits data and
metadata into different parts of the disk, so at best btrfs is going to
produce two streams of writes into the SSD while nilfs is doing one.
Most consumer ssds still benefit from huge writes, and so nilfs is
pretty optimal in that case.

The main benefit of the split for btrfs is being able to have different
duplication policies for metadata and data, and faster fsck times
because the metadata is more compact. Over time that may prove less
relevant on SSD, and changing it in btrfs is just flipping a few bits
during allocation.
