General Development This article discusses a small-scale benchmark test run on nine modern computer languages or variants: Java 1.3.1, Java 1.4.2, C compiled with gcc 3.3.1, Python 2.3.2, Python compiled with Psyco 1.1.1, and the four languages supported by Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2003 development environment: Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, and Visual J#. The benchmark tests arithmetic and trigonometric functions using a variety of data types, and also tests simple file I/O. All tests took place on a Pentium 4-based computer running Windows XP. Update: Delphi version of the benchmark here.

visual c++ on windows is fast

Visual c++ is fast on windows - is that surprizing ?

I just hope that people will not conclude that gcc is slow in general - gcc is a lot faster on Linux : for example the benchmark for c (amd1800+, linux, gcc3.3.1mdk) took a total of 54ms (41ms with -O2 -march=athlon-xp).
