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'."

Technically garbage-collected languages should be faster but just use more memory (faster as long as the extra memory is available). In practice though this is almost never the case, but you can make many examples where Java runs faster than a C++ program, because they have no "inline" overhead of memory management.
