One way to compare is right here on dpreview. Go to sample images and use comparison tool. Can select up to four cameras and compare a sample image at various ISO's. Give you a pretty good idea of the relative performance of various sensors.

The problem (I think) is in order to see a decent comparison you need to use the tool that makes the images about a comparable size, and I'm really not sure now well that works for downsizing noise, plus I think it doesn't downsize the smallest one, just the others to match. (Or get the full-res images and re-size them yourself.)

Okay, so I threw a 16MP sensor in (bottom right), to make sure everything else got resized (note it is at a lower ISO, so ignore the Fuji):
