Benchmarks "Google has released a research paper that suggests C++ is the best-performing programming language in the market. The internet giant implemented a compact algorithm in four languages - C++, Java, Scala and its own programming language Go - and then benchmarked results to find 'factors of difference'."

Yup, but you can do low-level programming (which makes the use of HLLs much harder, even though some projects like MS Singularity try to use them anyway) and still wish you didn't have to care about the internals of the compiler's optimizer and to do compiler-specific wizardry in order to optimize your code.
